This family asked us to update their combined TV room and study. Images 1 and 2 show how it looked when they commissioned us. They wanted a more airy, modern feeling. The client had shot a wonderful photograph of a bird in a tree we moved into this room to make "nest" the theme of the remodel. We expanded and re-built the desk area, upgraded the bookshelves, re-painted, and designed a custom L-shaped sectional sofa with a built-in ledge behind for drinks, remotes and power, and in lieu of a traditional coffee table or ottoman, we designed a series of white leather "eggs." These can be used as footstools, mini tables or hobbyhorses- and can be artfully arranged and re-arranged. Bright tropical colors combine with earthy greens and greys to make this space simultaneously relaxing and energizing. All the saturated color offsets the white eggs, wall lamps and desk surface wonderfully.
