Install of the Day !

Hey there. . 

Finished an install yesterday, brought in the last of the accessories, which always makes a space cozy and complete.  This past December I finished the Freeman's family room,  while the new garage and guest suite were under construction. Recently finished it was time to bring in the goods for that space.  

I carried a similar look into this space, masterfully built by The Salins Group.  This "retreat" is the perfect get-a-way for guests (or date night in the back yard) complete with a living area and bunks.

Take a look at the design board that started the project.
Clean and simple.  No fussy windows or furniture.  The view is the best part and the ceiling is a showstopper !

What a great get-away!

A comfortable sofa with chaise, facing the media area, flanked by two matching side chairs, all kid friendly.  A large wall grouping of family photos with a splash of art adds just that touch of color to a tone on tone space.

The media wall - what to do?
I played around with several looks . . 

We opted for simple open shelving, stained with rustic raw metal edges.  I had this piece made to fit these nicer, dark baskets to hide the games.
The bunk area has to be my favorite, and what a great job Ben's team did.

My "tip for the day" . .  taking ready-made coverlets (these I ordered from Restoration Hardware) and having them cut down (by a good seamstress of course) to fit the mattress.  This way making up the bed is much easier.  Not a lot of tucking  involved.  Amy and Karen did a beautiful job on these and the custom pillows.


We used the remaining coverlet fabric and incorporated it into the accent pillows.  I wanted to mix in a little burlap detail down the front and boxed edges with another piece of polka dot fabric for added detail.  Great job ladies!


When choosing the finished and paint colors for the suite, we decided to do a two-tone wood stain on the ceiling and simple grey walls, trim and all.  Love the warmth and rustic simplicity.



An let's not forget the bathroom with it's horizontal planking, simple cabinets and sleek above counter sink.  Just another clean and simple look for this space.

All in all it turned out beautifully and compliments the nearby - across the patio - space, just inside the main house.  Remember this?


Two nonexistent rooms, now complete, adding much needed family space to relax and kick back, an house weekend guests. Next onto the next project . .  the Master . . .


Thanks to Mekenzie for the amazing wide angle shots above and Thomas of The Salin's Group for working out all the details.

Have a happy Super Bowl Sunday!
