Family Room E-Design

November 2, 2010 at 5:30 AM 11 comments

I have been working on lots of projects but I’ve been terrible about sharing them.  So here is an e-design I put together for a wonderful family.  My client has exquisite taste, which is always fun for me to work with.  She wanted a classic, casual look for her family room with muted colors, so this is what I put together for her…

Calisto Sofa

Sofa custom made as an L shaped sectional and covered in a baja taupe cotton fabric –

For the accent chair, I suggested a wing chair in a rust colored Sunbrella fabric for easy clean up:

Thurston Wing Chair

I suggested an iron side table to go next to the accent chair –


For the rug, I suggested this striped muted dhurri rug:

For the coffee table, they knew that they wanted the Brickmaker’s Coffee Table, a fantastic choice –

Brickmaker's Table

For a floor lamp next to the L shaped sectional, I suggested the following tri-pod lamp:

Walnut Tripod Floor Lamp

For behind the sofa, I suggested going with this natural console table:


For more lighting, I suggested two of these gourd table lamps on either side of the console:

Double Gourd Lamp in Taupe Glazed Ceramic with Deep Patina Bronze Base & Pearl Dupioni Fabric Shade

For the window treatments, I suggested a natural bamboo roman shade:

For accent pillows, I suggested going with the grey and creme tones, like these:

Barbara Barry Poetical Linen Pillow Grey 22 sq - Kravet Couture

And I suggested a light gray for the walls with white trim

Benjamin Moore 2112-60 Cement Gray

There you have it, a room e-design in neutral colors of gray, brown and rust, that I was able to come in under budget.  Out of respect to my clients and the services they pay for, I can not list sources.  If you would like an e-design or in person design consultation, please e-mail me at

    Very soothing colors. Does the room have a fireplace? Maybe a pop of color in a painting would be nice.
    Yeah Giants!!!!!

      The room does have a fireplace which will I believe will be tiled in subway tile. So that will have the nice fresh white. We can bring color in with subtle accents like paintings and throws.

    That seems like a family room I could spend extended periods of time in. Great pieces!
