Clients Reading Room Before & After

We recently completed a quaint space for our clients.  They have officially named it “the reading room”.  The space was small and a big concern was how to fit enough furniture pieces for the whole family to enjoy without it feeling cramped.  The space measured 12 x 13, with one wall full of windows (with great natural light), and the other wall a fireplace.  We set out to create something intimate and serene, but also funcational and not just a pretty space to look at.

We had a custom settee made to perch right in front of the windows.  Our client has children and a sweet little dog so we made sure the fabrics were kid & pet friendly.

Because a coffee table would have crowded the space we opted for these custom ottomans to function as a coffee table and extra seating for guests.

The black granite fireplace face was replaced with a beautiful hexagon marble.

We picked a beautiful pair of chairs to sit opposite the settee.  The fabric has a subtle metallic sheen that adds a little glamour.

    Hi Amanda… just found your blog. When I looked at the reading room that you designed I thought it looked an awful like the house that we used to live in in The Woodlands. We have moved 7 times, but my favorite place was The Woodlands. We still have many friends that live there. Your blog is great! I will definitely be back.

    Can you share how the light fabric on the couch is kid friendly? Is the fabric treated? The room looks beautiful!

      Hi- we used a fabric that has 30K double rubs and is a synthetic blend of polyester & acrylic which helps repel stains.

    Beautiful room! Did you have the AC vent moved to a new location and if so, where? Those always seem to end up in the peskiest places!
