During this project, we had so much fun creating a unique and custom space for this family. They were in need of a great room where all of them could spend time together comfortably. The home’s original flooring was showing some wear and needed a change. Together with the homeowner, we chose a darker and more inviting stain throughout the main floor. The stain color beautifully compliments the style and decor of the home. In the family room, they wanted a change to make the massive room more welcoming. We added a large, built-in bookcase to house fun accessories, family memories, and the TV. We also added a fun built-in bookcase in the back of the room for a fun reading nook.
The existing fireplace was nondescript and disappeared in the large room. The intricate tile and the chunky mantle make the fireplace a gorgeous focal point. On the windows, we added square trim to give them dimension and tie in with the bookcases. That Craftsman style subtly carries throughout the house to coordinate with the new family room furniture and decor. New decorative lighting was added throughout the main level to add functionality and ambiance. Even the built-ins were outfitted with uplighting to show off the new art and accessories. We absolutely loved the stunning ceiling fan installed in the family room. Its large scale helps bring the ceiling down and add a huge wow factor. The final changes were beautiful paint colors throughout, paired with fun art and accessories. With all of the updates, this home now evokes a cozy feeling, while still reflecting the personality of this unique family.
