Fun and Fabulous Family Room Room ... Before and After

I think this is the first time I'm sharing these pictures with you. This room was completed awhile back. 

I don't have any "before" pictures of this space but I do have  progress shots I'll share below. This family room is in an old, stately stone Tudor house located in a gorgeous main line neighborhood.

Our mission for the room was to make it fun, colorful and comfortable for a family of six. They're huge sports fans (hockey is their fave) and there is a ginormous TV to host family and friends and watch all kinds of sporting events.

The original trim throughout the home was stained oak. You can see the original trim below to the left. 

I suggested we paint all the trim, fireplace, windows and interior doors of this room a high gloss black to keep it sophisticated and the walls white for a beautiful neutral back drop. 

Here are the french doors painted high gloss. This was back in 2014 now its most definitely on trend as I told my client we were way ahead of our time:) 

There are two gorgeous large windows in this room that were also painted a rich black.

It was a STUNNING transformation.
 Loved it. 

It also helped make the TV disappear in between the two large freshly painted windows. 

The color scheme we chose was black, blue and white and pops of orange and pink. My client wanted FUN, not stuffy for her kids so that was what we went for!

There is a TON of seating in this space which I love. You can have a large group in here and there are so many places to sit you would never have to run to another room to grab a chair (those with large family parties know exactly what I'm talking about).

We chose a sectional and two chairs by CR Laine , a pair of x- benches, two ottomans and two chippendale chairs flanking a console table. All pieces had to have durable fabrics. The sectional is covered in a gray sunbrella and the other pieces in very durable fabrics as well. 

Here's a good look at the room

  1. Another marvelous work Stephanie! Love all the colors and patterns in the space and of course those gorgeous black windows and doors! Quick question, do you know if all windows can be painted? I have white currently and so want them to be black!

  2. Great job! Love the fabric that the x-benches are upholstered in. The colors would be great for a playroom- you mentioned the fabric was durable, is it really play room durable though? Thanks!

  3. Would you share the name of the fabric on x benches? It would look great in my collage granddaughter's first apartment.

  4. This is soo awesome. And what a tough room with the door placement. Excellent jog. Where is the round mirror from? I have been looking for my daughter.

  5. Great tips and very easy to understand. This will definitely be very useful for me when I get a chance to start my business.
