Challenges.....Fabulous views along one wall of windows and a dumb fireplace in a bad location that can’t be moved?
Objective.....Create a space that is very relaxed and not delicate (the pool is accessed through this room). My Clients asked for a sofa big enough to stretch out on.
Design.....A custom designed 12 foot leather sofa anchors the room. Dark distressed woods and a patterned carpet stand up to bad behavior. The awkward fireplace was incorporated as an element into the media wall. Mouldings and a stenciled design (picked up from the carpet) add interest at the ceiling.
Achievement.....Comfortable and durable, this turned out to be an easy room to live in and use both for the family and for casual entertaining. Yes…you could dance on the coffee table if you wanted to!
