Modern Family Room

Today's post features another room in the home of a wonderful family, the Guptas.  They love the home they built, but wanted to make it more their own with a contemporary feel that they like and wanted to start with all new furnishings.

We started with the fireplace.   Removing the white dental moulding builder's mantel, we used large tiles with a bronze metallic glaze from floor to ceiling.
  Knowing what wonderful hosts my clients are and imagining all of the delicious treats that could be served, I suggested adding a banquette to the space for entertaining.  We chose a velvet in a taupe color to compliment the tiles in the fireplace and added a sparkly chandelier.  The tufting in the custom banquette shows off the sheen of the velvet.  It is truly glamorous!

We added a desk area for the children to do homework and above it, the kids helped to create three large canvas paintings with a pop of fuschia.
Mirrors behind the floating shelves on the opposite side of the fireplace balance the room and add more depth, making it look even bigger and multiplying the light provided by the windows.
A chocolate brown leather sectional seats the whole family and handles accidental spills well.  The rounded coffee table has hidden storage as does the entertainment console.
Love the aubergine accents with the silver scroll drapes, throw pillows and chairs.
