Last week, we shared the first glimpse of our stunning 7th Avenue project with the entryway and great room reveals and now we’re back to walk-through even more of this elegant family home. But first, let’s talk a little bit about the project. After undergoing a full renovation, we were brought on to select the furnishings and window treatments throughout the space. The home had a light + airy feel and needed to work for a young family with two small girls while still staying true to its gorgeous new architectural details.
The family room is just off the kitchen area, and naturally the space where the young family will congregate most frequently. It's close proximity to the kitchen and dining nook make it a convenient space for the kids to watch TV or even do homework as our clients prepare dinner. While this space is slightly less formal than the great room, we needed the furnishings to still create structure in the open space. The wood framed accent chairs provide a defining line to the family room, but their low profile keep it feeling open and inviting.
I opted for a hexagonal coffee table to allow traffic flow to move freely around the large sectional while playing off the square lines of the structured chairs. The two side tables bring in a mix of metals to keep things from feeling too matchy-matchy. Finally, to soften things up, I curated the geometric and subtle floral patterned textiles in the pillows to compliment the client's existing art collection.
Keep reading for the full reveal and to hear how we made these custom window treatments both beautiful and functional for our clients!
We really wanted to create a cozy space for family meals and this dining nook proved the perfect spot. A large, farm-style dining table is paired with a built-in bench in our favorite deep blue. We pulled in layers of subtle pattern with pillows and a custom bench seat to really make the space inviting. This layout was not only the most flexible for our client's family, it's able to easily accommodate additional guests if needed.
The final touch is the large roman shade in a classic neutral stripe. Because the window is so large and a bit hard to reach, we add a motorized feature to the shade for ease of use. Now the clients are able to automatically raise and lower the striped roman shade without having to move the dining table to the side. The final dining nook is perfect for quick breakfasts before school or easy, lingering brunches on Saturday morning.
