Hide CaptionShow CaptionInterior designer Brice Cooper, with the help of design coordinators Kelly Edwards and Ali Azhar, brings in geometric skyline shapes, muted city tones and textured stone elements that make the view feel like an extension of the living room.
The Solution
First they rearrange the furniture to maximize use of the longest wall as a media wall. They add several creative storage solutions to conceal clutter and maintain the simple, clean lines of modern design. They supplement McShea's great leather sofas with a new bar, entryway organizer and new tables. Blue curtains bring in the sky tones and complete the outdoor elements theme.
