A brighter, some-more mouth-watering groundwork with room for games and guests
October 8, 2015 - accent chair
Jen and Dana Madsen would like to use a 27-by-28-foot family room in their Arlington groundwork for interesting and examination movies. They aren’t certain how best to arrange a seat around a vast section grate and soppy bar (not shown).
Designer Paul Corrie removes a paneling and moves a practice apparatus to a adjacent guest room while adding a sleeper lounge to accommodate visitors. He creates apart zones for examination TV and review or personification games.
Corrie, of Paul Corrie Interiors (www.paulcorrie.com, 202-234-0653), is formed in a District.
Remove a paneling and paint a walls and section grate a same color. A dim green, such as Benjamin Moore’s Celery Salt , will give a homeowners a mortar demeanour they enterprise and element a room’s black accents.
Light fabrics and upholstery keep a groundwork from feeling closed-in and dreary.
Hardwood flooring in a dim finish is some-more durable and unchanging with a floors in a rest of a house.
Create space for personification games or review with a list and gentle chairs.
A mirror above a mantel reflects light and creates a focal point. A tiny vase of flowers softens a grate wall.
