Featured Project: Media Room

Media rooms are moving away from the single-use home theater style to provide more cozy and inviting flex space for hanging out or entertaining. This luscious room is comprised of several designated spaces. Three TVs are in the space, but you could easily curl up in the down-filled sectional by Hickory Chair for an afternoon nap, or rock a baby to sleep in the rich leather swivel rocker from Hancock and Moore. A custom-made cocktail ottoman means everyone can prop their feet but also provides ample room for a tray to hold snacks and beverages. The space is made even more inviting by a Sea Grass rug from Stark carpet over a wool and silk hand knotted rug, also by Stark.

A recessed live triple dormer is perfect for two high top tables by Swaim accompanied by swivel stools from Hancock and Moore upholstered in rich velvet from Scalamandre’ fabrics. The shutters are custom painted in Black Fox by Sherwin Williams to match the trim throughout the large space. A High Gloss finish was used to reflect light and is an ambiguous black/brown/charcoal color that pairs perfectly with the granite of the bar and game table and chairs by Lorts Furniture. 

The bar is glam and sexy with barstools again by Hancock and Moore, and custom cabinets in rich walnut that frame the large screen TV. The backsplash is a coppery/bronze wavy tile that brings out the mica in the yummy granite. Drawers have been custom-designed to hold all the needs for a well-stocked bar with sink and under counter refrigerator and beverage center.

Although a collector of fine art, the homeowner had an ingenious idea of framing their favorite CD covers to show off their taste in music.

The media powder room is commands attention with a custom-designed vanity with vessel bowl and gleaming brushed bronze faucets. Tile wainscoting brings out both the Black Fox paint and hints of the golden metallic in the wallpaper above. The light fixture accentuates the harmony of the transitional space and still gives off an elegance that is befitting a fine, long-established, elite Gentlemen’s club.
