A ROOM WITH TWO VIEWS

Our client requested that this room be both suitable for everyday use and formal entertaining.

  • Console and lamps act as a natural divider, giving the room a “play side” and a “party side.”
  • There is a television hidden within a custom armoire with mirrored doors.
  • Setting feels engaging, warm and a little bit eclectic.

OPEN AND AIRY

This small sunroom was designed with custom mirrored panels creating optical illusions of space and maximizing light.

  • Layered antique rug placed on top of a traditional sisal rug makes for a pretty and durable presentation.
  • Morroccan tea table gives the room a bold element.
  • The custom lantern by Niermann Weeks evokes the charm of an antique birdcage.

HAVE SOME CRAIC

Being of Irish descent, the homeowners desired a lower level with a pub-inspired lounge for entertaining.

  • Walls are upholstered with plaid fabric.
  • Pub tables lend flexibility for seating while also creating an authentic feel.
  • 15-foot long banquette adds warmth.

At JamesThomas, we specialize in designing your perfect welcome home. Let’s get started.
