We had our house completely gutted and redone. But, by the time we were ready to design the TV room, we were tired and burnt-out. Basically, it became a dumping ground for all things family. Family photos, family games, furniture from the past and even the rug, which you can’t see, but had been in my daughters nursery. We couldn’t even be bothered to pick out a new paint color. This color had been used in a previous project. (Benjamin Moore, OC-16, Cedar Key) We really gave it no thought.
But after a few years, I started to get inspiration and really wanted to make this room beautiful, comfortable and part of the rest of the house. Here’s some shots I took for inspiration. Cecconis, on the right. I love everything about this restaurant.
I love the color and the different textures. Velvet, leather, marble and brass.
How’d I do?
Couch (Pit couch from Mitchell Gold) , Leather chair (Vintage, Brooklyn Flee), Red blanket (Gilt.com) and console (used, from someone in my building) are the only things that stayed.
The Rug, The RealReal.com.
Still I think it’s needs more. We hung art (ours) and added pillows (West Elm), maybe too many pillows.
WE LOVE THIS ROOM.
