Creating a Scenic Serenity in a Family Room

10 January 2024

In the heart of their recently renovated home, where Dyan and Brian decided to establish their roots, I was invited to focus on transforming the family room into a vibrant and inviting space.

Originally a sunroom, this area boasted panoramic views of a golf course and majestic trees, setting the stage for a captivating transformation. Now, it serves as the central gathering point for the family, a place to unwind and enjoy both television entertainment and the beauty of the outdoors.


Drawing inspiration from colorful souvenirs and artwork collected during their travels, a warm and inviting color palette emerged. Rust tones, juxtaposed against the cool grey-blue walls, creates a harmonious blend that resonates throughout the room.

To optimize functionality, we crafted a custom storage solution around the TV, seamlessly accommodating stereo equipment and a video player. Adjacent shelves provide a perfect showcase for the family’s cherished global treasures, while concealed lower storage discreetly houses items that don’t require constant visibility.

In the center of the room, a sectional sofa floats gracefully, offering a cozy vantage point equally oriented toward both the TV and the picturesque backyard view. Complementing this setup, a set of round stacking coffee tables with stone tops not only enhances the aesthetics but also provides additional surfaces for entertaining guests.

Upon entering this splendid family room, a warmer tone radiates from the strategically placed wall décor. The copper, gold, and silver elements of the plate wall décor create a symmetrical and impactful statement, enriching the overall ambiance against the backdrop of the grey-blue wall canvas. The result is a harmonious blend of style, comfort, and functionality—a testament to the thoughtful design and personal touch invested in this remarkable family room makeover.


Here is what Dyan and Brian shared about their experience:
After completing a home renovation, we were looking for someone to add some finishing touches to our family room & a wall in the living room. Marina helped create warmth & style using existing furniture while adding some new pieces, colour to the walls & a bookcase surrounding the TV. We asked her to add a “wow” factor & we feel she accomplished that plus added comfort that wasn’t there before.

Working with Marina made this process so much easier because she really listens to her clients wishes combined with her excellent communication skills. We would gladly work with her again & suggest you do too!
