A split-level home was in need of an update for their lower level bar and family room.  The client was looking for hard-wearing surfaces with lots of style and visual impact for this multi-purpose space.  
As always, every good design starts with a well-executed plan.  We take all of our client's needs, the parameters of the physical space and the entire wish list and produce a plan that meets our client's needs and we try to exceed their expectations of what  is truly possible with their space and their budget.  
First, we started with a comfortable, generous sofa that offers ample lounging space with an easy to clean surface for dogs and kids.  
With a swivel function, this chair can appreciate the view out the large sliding door, the fireplace or the television.
An easily, moveable ottoman can be used as an extra seat or foot rest, where needed.  
A durable, all-vinyl plank floor is impervious to all spills and everything this busy family can throw its way.
This boho rug was the inspiration for the color palette and textural layering in this space.  These warm tobacco and cinnamon colors add depth and balance to the cool, gray vinyl flooring.  
An adjustable, pharmacy, floor lamp is ideal for adjusting light for reading or task work without obstructing the view to the television or outdoors.  
Pair of slim, storage end tables are ideal for stashing remotes, coasters, and anything else needed close at hand.  
Hammered metal table lamps with light linen shades will flood the space with light and add gorgeous texture.  
The client really wanted an electric fireplace in the space to add warmth and interest to this chilly, lower level space.  
A series of metal, wall sculptures can be installed in multiples, to create a dynamic and three dimensional art installation.  
This antique mirror  will be installed as a textured backsplash from the top of the countertops to the ceiling on the sink wall.  When a reflective material is installed like this, it creates depth and interest in the space.

A series of light weight barstools allow guests to chat with the bartender or pivot to take in the big game.  


A copper bar sink adds interest and removes any resemblance to this space being merely a "satellite kitchen".  The clients wanted this to distinctly feel like a lounge and bar, and not a secondary kitchen.  
A copper, all-in-one faucet make clean up a snap!
Crisp, creamy white trim sets of the trim work and doors in this space.  
Warm honey-toned paint the lower level space is wrapped in warmth.  
HC-154 Hale Navy

Painting the cabinetry in this deep navy blue tone will add depth and interest to the storage elements in the lower level.  


When all the elements combine, the result is a bohemian, colorful and personality-filled space that will be enjoyed for years to come....
