Warm & Textile Filled Great Room

A velvet sofa, airy built-ins, and a touch of boucle

The first thing we did in this room was elevate the fireplace wall.

Statements on fireplaces are one of our favorite details, especially when it’s painted brick. Paired with a cast concrete surround, it was the perfect way to center two built-ins on either side.

Because we wanted this space to feel light and airy, we went with open shelves instead of closed, bringing in the wood accent tone we used throughout the entire home.

Pulling color from the front room, we used this rug in a deep navy tone, which really differentiated it if from any space in the rest of the home.

Adding our new English Roll Arm sofa in fawn velvet, two of our favorite Beckett chairs, and a pair of boucle ottomans, the room tied together perfectly.

In this room, the color speaks to you through the furniture and the textiles, so we chose to leave the built-ins very neutral so the color isn’t everywhere, and you can really pay attention to the interesting shapes and details.

"This painting of the lady on the mantle is my favorite; it brings a green tone into the room and gives it some personality."

  1. Can you please tell me what color white you used on the walls in this home? Also the white on the cabinets and the dark on the island? Thank you so much!!!!!

  2. Love the fawn velvet as an alternative to a grey sofa that’s so popular lately. Looks great with the blue rug and wood tones.
