A Major League Upgrade to a Living and Family Room

We've been MIA because we're still swooning over the master bedroom suite reveal we did in May for the clients of this very home.

When we first visited almost a year ago, we discovered a beautiful home, with interesting architectural details that had been furnished with the bare essentials. Sneakers as decorative items? Check! Sofas facing each other instead of the TV? Check.

A sectional was the perfect fit for comfort and practicality in this family room. Since the room is exceptionally linear, the sectional's placement allowed us to add a second seating zone behind it for visitors who wanted to watch what's happening, while having a more intimate chat in the middle of all the action.  Our client, a professional athlete and his young family, travel a lot so we gave a nod to that with the stacked suitcase/chest between the two accent chairs and with various accessories throughout.

The walls, already a perfect shade of grey, needed some warmth, so we chose a rust color for the custom drapery panels.

Directly across from the family room is the formal living room/gentleman's lounge which also needed some love and affection. 

I lobbied hard for this mammoth leather chesterfield sofa and was so happy they agreed as it totally steals the show. 

Well, so too do those accent chairs with the leather strap arms, which by the way, weigh a ton. 

We wanted to maintain the natural light that streams through this large window and door, so kept a minimalist approach for the custom panels with sheer curtains on a track that helps to filter the light and add just enough privacy when pulled.

The X-leg benches add visual weight to the space when placed next to the coffee and also serve as additional seating that's easy to move around wherever needed.

We cozied up the faux fireplace with candles, decorative twigs/logs and added a hint of glam-swagger (yes, I just made that up) with two oversized leaning mirrors.

The view from above. We'll eventually add a dramatic chandelier and some custom art or wallpaper above the fireplace in the next phase of this project and work on the wetbar that's next to this lounge. 'Til then, I think we definitely brought some grown and sexy vibe to this lounge. We'll reveal the dining room and entryway next. Yes, I promise it won't take us two months to do so!
