A F T E R:

The Challenge:
With the kids gone and the purchase of a new larger TV, the couple decided to re-decorate this basement family room from scratch. They wanted to create a hi-tech media room that still felt warm and inviting.
The Vision:
Instead of hiding the TV and surround sound components, we would showcase them. Comfortable viewing of both the TV and the fire would be provided by a large sectional with a chaise component. The couple's classic Eames chair would be kept and set the tone for the new decor.
The Process:
The TV was turned into a focal point by placing it on an off-black custom-made cabinet; flanking front speakers were perched on stands to give them a sculptural quality. This is balanced on the opposite wall with a black shelf behind the sofa to hold accessories and rear speakers. Acoustics were improved by selecting softer surfaces for the upholstery and putting drapery on the window. A collection of remote controls is given pride of place on a specially designated table set next to the best seat in the house.
The Result:
The ultrasuede upholstery, plush carpet, and muted colour palette impart a hushed atmosphere, while punches of red liven it up. Stainless and chrome accents pick up the TV's hi-tech feel, counterbalanced by a selection of handcrafted and organic objects. Altogether an adult space!
