The media room in a Boston townhouse decorated by design firm Wells & Fox features three paintings by Mark Bradford and a work by Mark Grotjahn. The light fixture is by David Weeks Studio, the custom-made sectional sofa is clad in a Holland & Sherry wool, and the reproduction Illum Wikkelsø lounge chair by Lost City Arts is upholstered in a Jim Thompson linen blend.
Let me give a little disclosure: I realize this is not a tiny living room by any standards. But for a big Texas house, where we regularly try to sit 10-12 adults, it’s not large either. The room is about 13’x13′ with two walls of huge windows (which I LOVE, but they do make furniture placement tricky) and – thanks to our fireplace renovation – one wall of cabinetry and fireplace. The fourth “wall” is open past the bar area to our kitchen table.
Design with you in mind. Make sure you’re designing a space that feels homey and comfortable for you and your family. Whether that means kitschy art, funky knickknacks or your favorite throw, stay true to yourself and your lifestyle.
