In this Chevy Chase family room, the “givens” designated by the homeowners were the built-in bookcases, the lithograph and the wall color— everything else was ripe for change. The room is a pale yellow (which doesn’t show all that well in the photos!) The homeowners wanted a room that would embrace friends and family for relaxing, playing games, visiting and hanging out. The artwork provided the springboard for room’s color palette— the rich bouquet of greens, blues and oranges was such fun to work with. The classic William Morris fabric shown on the lounge chairs (also used for custom roman shades on the windows and doors) brings in the colors with a burst of vibrant patterning as well… To offset the floral fabric, I chose cozy cadet blue and vermilion chenille fabrics for the sectional. The area rug from Stark Carpet bears a plaid pattern that brings in the same colors as well. The warm tones of natural pine and painted woods add depth and texture to the mix.
