Client Work: Family Room Plans

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Recently, I posted about a downstairs family room that needed a little tweaking.  Here is the arrangement that I planned for the space.  The room is open to two different sets of stairs and a hallway.  So the trick was leaving an open path for traffic flow.


  Here is the mood board that I created to address some of the needs.


My client was considering a striped rug to layer over the carpet.  I thought it was a great idea and included it in the mood board.  The marbled paper is the "mixer" of the room tying the coral & gray/blue together.  You can't see it from the image, but the chairs have colorful buttons in the tufting.


Also, my client likes the look of a truly "collected" gallery wall - photos, art, prints, etc.  This is the arrangement I came up with.  She is fortunate to have 10 1/2 ' ceilings on one side of the room so the gallery wall will fill that space nicely. 

I cannot wait to see this some together and will hopefully have pictures to share soon.

  2. Love your design choices. What are you planning for the corner next to the window with the bamboo shade? Is it going to be a play area? Reading nook? Just curious.

  3. Marianne, it is actually a hallway. There is currently a bookcase there, but my client is considering floating shelves.

  4. Love it Rene, tailored and chic. I have been dreaming of a black and white striped rug for some time. It adds such interest to a space...and I love the tufting on the chairs. I can't wait to see it finished.

  6. This layout is really great; it's such a challenging space.
    I also really like the gallery wall effect going way up the wall and the idea of the "mixer" in the room.

  9. Great color mix and that marbled paper is to die for, the perfect "mixer!" I am curious what 3D program you are using...? I use 2D drawings (I know, a bit old fashioned and low tech) and it's high time I took the 3D plunge!

  10. Cathy, try google sketch. It takes some time getting used to it, but is fun once you do.

  11. Good idea to maximize the space with a sectional. Is that from West Elm? Great job!

  13. First of all Google Sketch almost made me go postal trying to figure it out. I think it is way beyond my "payscale".......Love the plan. Sectionals are great because they allow so much seating. Can't wait to see it finished.
