Hi All. . .
It's back to business . . . took a few days off to clear the head, getting ready for some fun new projects in 2012.
Thought I would share one of two jobs we just finished the Friday before Christmas . . . with the other install photos to follow . . .
The Third floor bonus room. Big and empty. A great place for the kids to hang out, play video games and watch movies, but my client Kristen Foster needed some help. The room was long with odd angles and a big nook.
Take a look at the finished product, and I will walk you through the details.
In the window nook we added a built in day bed with storage drawers below. A custom bench seat and pillows create the perfect reading spot.
Our color palate was focused on this great area rug to define the sofa area and a few fabrics and pillows tied it all together.
A little art, and a pouf finish off the area.
Take a look at the TV wall, that was the biggest change in the room.
Behind that wall of wood and TV is actually a small, long window. With the great light coming in from the nook wall, we decided we didn't need the light from the side of the house, so I had my carpenter make a large backdrop to cover the window and hang the TV !
We coved the window behind it with a bamboo blind. This is just for aesthetic purposes on the outside. The new wood panel is mounted to the wall with all the TV lines running behind it.
My inspiration for this wall came from this picture I found showing a wood back drop!
While a little tricky to install, it works beautifully and now takes the TV off the short, side wall.
The base unit was made as well using this piece (available at www.lucyandcompany.com) as inspiration. Loved it, but need it to be longer with deep top drawers and mesh doors on the bottom. The mesh allowing the remote for game playing to work through the doors.
A new sofa with long chaise along the short walls.
and voila . . . new furnished game and TV room for all!
