We suspect this household room by Eve Robinson Associates, within the Kips Bay Show House, is an area most households may take pleasure in — particularly because it’s a facelift of what the designers name “a colorless, run-down area” that’s now “a mixture of stylish classic and modern furnishings with wealthy and plush finishes.” The intent of the designers was a room that “speaks to our senses and comforts our soul.” Designed with entertaining in thoughts, it has room to play board video games, watch TV, and even simply curl up for a chat over snacks and drinks. The colours are a variation on the “standard suspect” neutrals: as an alternative of countless sand colours or cream tones, we get gentle grey and lavender — simply totally different sufficient to be cheerful, simply impartial sufficient to be modern.
You’ve obtained to like using sample right here, too — particularly within the rug, that includes a staggered array of rectangles that provides fascinating texture. Note the injection of different colours by means of a brilliant portray over the sofa, a striped album on the espresso desk, and flowers in pink, fuchsia, orange, and yellow. Don’t overlook your complete outside space that’s “half” of this room as properly; French doorways make it straightforward to maneuver from dialog or a film, to lounging outdoors. And how about that reflective ceiling that brightens all of it? Perhaps one of the best stroke of enjoyable is how the theme — “trendy household” — is actually rendered as a part of the design (though not readily seen in these photographs): in a bowl of marshmallows, a number of bear letters spelling out these very phrases!
