This very large family room had been added in the 70’s. Even though it gave great additional space, it at the same time presented a dilemma of sorts as we began to plan the design All the walls had very large openings that we needed to work around, and a corner fireplace, always difficult to work with in my opinion dominated the south end of the room. The walls had beautiful old real wood paneling and the grey Colorado marble fireplace, original to the addition, had great texture even though it was really quite white. Keeping this all in mind and the knowledge that my client has an astonishing collection of very interesting things that she constantly moves around I realized my job was going to be a lot about a flexible background. For this reason I choose a single hue and neutral color theory plan and within this structure choose a primary hue to make the design timeless as well as flexible. So…red it is.
We gave the room some new backgrounds, a smooth sheetrock ceiling with a multitude of can lights, and a new Homer Wood hickory floor. Two seating arrangements, both with TV viewing, lots of big comfortable chairs, and several small tables to help make the room usable and hold my clients various interesting objects, worked well. As many pairs of things as we could use added to our design success. The custom furniture is all Pearson, the drapery fabrics are Robert Allen, assorted other fabrics are Duralee, Kravet, and Ralph Lauren.
