Hide CaptionShow CaptionA rich chocolate brown on the walls, new furnishings and a bar area make this a sophisticated hangout.
Interior designer Brice Cooper paints the walls a rich chocolate brown, with the help of design coordinators Kelly Edwards and Ali Azhar. The TV is moved to the opposite wall to make room for the new bar in the corner nook, and the stereo components are concealed to reduce clutter. A small-scale, tan sofa and a couple of wooden benches in the bay window provide seating, and tan dupioni silk curtains add a sophisticated touch.
