Isn't this just a beautiful room designed by Houston designer, Kara Childress?
We are so fortunate to be working on lot's of different and really fun projects right now. In one home, we are transforming a beautiful, but rarely used living room into a more comfortable useable space.
The room has very tall ceilings so we plan to add beams. We're tearing out the fireplace with the formal painted wood mantel. We will install a taller firebox with a gorgeous precast limestone mantel that goes all the way up. It will look much like the one above.
Our clients want to add a television to the room ...We will recess it into the wall above a fabulous Italian stone console they already own.
The icing on the cake...
We are on a search for some fabulous doors similar to these to hide the TV when not in use.
When we choose fabrics they will be a mix of textures for a casual elegant feel. The clients have a hearth room off the kitchen that they enjoy every day. The living room is directly in front of the grand foyer...and right next to the hearth room and kitchen. Our goal is to land somewhere in between the formality of the existing space and the casualness of the hearth room. (By the way making some changes there as well... we will share later).
We want beautiful yet comfortable...there will be no silk sofas! A great mix similar to the images below...
It's going to be fabulous! Lot's more details to come.
It's your turn. Let's talk!
