The gameroom I talked about in December is almost complete, and until the room is photographed, here are some images of furniture, fabrics and other elements we used to help inspire your own cozy retreat...
This galvanized steel coffee table looks fabulous topped with a leather tray and art books. The bottom is perfect for storing games and blankets in large baskets.
A small loft/nook is carved out in one corner of the room and is piled high with a houndstooth cushion and lots of custom pillows. The pillows and cushion were inspired by menswear textiles and really add a cozy richness to the room. I am a fool for monograms, and the one above was the perfect touch to a crisp ivory linen pillow in the loft.
To add a nice pop of color, a large Persian rug was laid over the new sisal-like carpet.
One of my favorite additions to the room are the custom built-ins! We transformed an odd attic space layout into a custom media center and bookshelves. The media cabinet was custom finished by Linde Browning Giddens with base of Benjamin Moore's Wedgewood Gray and a gorgeous glaze that gives it instant patina. It is flanked by antiqued ivory bookshelves (also finished by Linde) filled with pretty books and accessories that were special to the family.
The best part of all is hearing the family talk about how much they love their new room and that they spend tons of time there together... that's what it is all about!
