Family Room MakeOver


This recently completed client project is definitely one of my favorites!

We opened up a wall into the kitchen, closed a doorway into a hall (yes - CLOSED up a door!) and created a more open concept living space for this family.

The previously uninspiring fireplace was clad with a white quartzite, taken right to the ceiling, and custom built-ins were added on either side. 'Floating' shelves instead of the standard cabinet style shelves were used to continue that open feeling.

2 gorgeous taupe leather sofas & a plaid upholstered ottoman provide tons of seating and a great conversation area. Charcoal linen drapes and beautiful accents pieces throughout complete the room.

    I love the plaid ottoman. Can you tell me where I can find material like that? I haven’t seen anything like it.

    • Thanks Crystal; honestly i can't remember that detail, this project was 5 years ago, sorry. it would have been through a traderoom or the supplier so likely wouldn't have been any help to you anyhow :(
