    BEFORE & AFTER: COZY MEDIA ROOM
    May 13, 2016 in Before & After | 6 comments

    Over the next few weeks I’ll be showing you some ‘before and after’s’ from one of our favorite long-time clients. Both husband and wife are a treat to work with and we always have a lot of laughs.

    MEDIA ROOM AFTER:

    The media room is the man of the house’s sole domain and personal retreat.  The husband ‘got to’ as-in was permitted to- provide input on his media room in terms of comfort, color and design goals. I say ‘got to’, which sounds mean, but since it was previously decorated with Scarface and Predator posters, the wife and I were hesitant to allow this (sorry hubby!). He was ‘kind’ enough to donate said Scarface poster to my husband and it is now on display in his office/our stock room (my husband ‘gets to’ work with 7 women, so we let him have some say in the décor around his ‘work space’).

    MEDIA ROOM BEFORE:

    The media room was (as often happens) the place where the old furniture went as new pieces replace them.  It was definitely an eclectic assortment of pieces that were not conducive to family and friends hanging out together.

    Both easy-going people, the major request was comfortable seating for watching UT football games and movies (including other Arnold Schwarzenegger and Al Pacino flicks). The husband is very tall so we went for an extra deep sectional (also perfect for napping!).

    The room was challenging to furnish because it is long but narrow. So, we ended up with a sectional against one wall, allowing for a walk space on the other side. Anyone can pile on the massive sectional. And, if additional seating is needed on game days, small chairs can be brought in and placed on the open side.

    We also added this great ottoman/cocktail table combo that gives you the best of both worlds!

    We painted the room a cozy, dark green/grey and installed new lighting as well.  The media pieces are made of metal and have mesh fronts to allow air circulation for the components.

    The only thing we did not pick out was the 70” TV. As you can imagine, the husband had a wonderful time doing that all by himself!
