Solution: Wall color was changed from a dingy china white to pure white and window mullions/door frames were painted jet black to create contrast and interest. French doors to interior rooms of the home were removed for a better traffic flow & connection. A large,  room-sized, dark gray custom rug was made to anchor the space, cover the Mexican tile and give the room presence & depth.

A custom designed TV cabinet with a remote controlled lift conceals the TV and provides the room with a gorgeous wood casegoods piece. Custom upholstery pieces with down cushions make this a hang out for the entire family. Custom, origami-style lacquered end tables give a zing to the space. Fabrics are outdoor acrylic fabrics cleanable with bleach, although you would never know by their touch. Custom made roman shades of horsehair fabric provide texture and just the right amount of privacy.

The least used is now the most used room!
