As you can see from the image below, this multi-use room was crying out for some character. A built-in office nook, and a re-do of the fireplace surround made a huge difference to the tone of the room
The fireplace surround was replaced with a slightly metallic tile, in a random strip pattern, and a new mantle from a re-purposed joist was installed. The TV was also installed in a recessed nook.
On the other side of the room, furniture was replace and the walls painted. For a splash of color, I created a custom photo installation that wrapped along two walls. Since the theme of the room was 'organic modern' I used a tree as the basis for the piece.
Here I am with my assistant getting all these pictures up (with the homeowner's daughter looking on with curiousity!). This install really required some planning, and those paper templates were a must.
The client did not care for the spiral staircase, nor the barely-accessible closet. We took it all out, and designed a wonderful, open staircase with integrated storage.
