show & tell: new family room in a tight space

every once in a while i'll be posting about work i've done. because, well, i need a place to store it too ~ and what better place than on my design blog.
(looking into the new family room addition through the eat-in kitchen. new pillowed travertine floor tile throughout lends continuity. the arched entry & coved ceiling detail give special interest to the new space. understated recessed lighting in the new room keeps the focus where it should be)

(the clients wanted a way to display their art, house their plasma tv, and store their a/v related components in a comfy yet contemporary way. the addition was constrained in size by property lines, so large pieces of furniture to solve their issues wasn't necessarily the best option. instead, i opted for custom wall niches & a low, understated row of window-seat-esque custom millwork. paint colors were chosen to highlight the special wall while keeping a soft, cozy feeling.)
(the a/v equipment & movies are stored in the cutsom millwork (natural cherry) with an antiqued uba-tuba (granite) ledge at a height that doubles as a bench)
