Paradise Valley Family Room
I was really excited when this homeowner called and asked what she should do with this room!
Not having made any changes to her décor in 26 years made the decision to start over an easy one. New furniture, tables, lamps, a beautiful area rug, color on the walls and refinishing the beams to look like the real wood lifted this room and the spirits of the homeowner. I evened up the bookshelves and added a wood edge to the front of each of them. Then I carefully arranged her beloved collection of books to show off the beauty and the texture of their bindings.
Updating the fireplace with stone added tremendous texture and interest to the entire house as the opposite side faces into the formal living room. We added wood corbels to visually support the wood mantel beam and refinished it to look like real wood.
She tells me the room is still their favorite in the house. ”No need to leave the house, we love this room so much and it still looks as new as it was revitalized a few years ago.”
