The Ultimate Hangout Space

An inviting sectional sofa and stylish storage mix with interesting textures and earthy elements to create a lower level media room for relaxing and catching up on the latest TV shows and must-see movies.

Stylish Storage

The long buffet cabinet located behind the sectional has a lightly distressed and translucent black finish that allows the grain to show through. On the wall above sits one of two iPad mounts that keep the devices that run HGTV Smart Home 2016 charged and ready to go.

Favorite Focal Point

What interior designer Tiffany Brooks calls one of her favorite pieces in the home, she sourced a local artist to create the large 5’ by 5’ foot custom piece of wall art above the buffet that serves as one of the focal points of the room.

On Display

The open shelves of the media room's buffet cabinet holds a collection of color-coded books, while doors provide closed storage for media equipment and other essentials.

Comfy Sectional Sofa

The media room's inviting striped charcoal and white sectional sofa with a masculine feel provides comfortable seating for watching a favorite movie.

Detail with Dimension

The striped sectional sofa includes an oversized nail head trim for dimension and that extra bit of detail that gives this piece of furniture a masculine edge.

Contrasting Color

The dark charcoal gray color used for the media room ceiling provides contrast for the lighter off-white walls. The speakers recessed into the ceiling are part of the home's audio system that can be controlled by smartphone, tablet or computer.

Cabinet Details

The built-in cabinet that holds the media room’s TV has the same dark charcoal color used for the ceiling. Molding on top of the unit provides the perfect finishing touch.

Lower Level Location

The detailing on the stairs down to the lower level media room reflects the style of this home. Right off the stairs sits a built-in cabinet that holds a home theater system with a large 65-inch curved smart TV that can be enjoyed from different angles.

Sconces and Speakers

Two wrought iron wall sconces with white linen shades sit above wall speakers and flank each side of the built-in TV cabinet, providing media room illumination.

Touch of Nature

A large potted fig plant adds a touch of nature to the media room, with a well-designed seating area and the latest technology to make the space comfortable and user-friendly.

Upholstered Bench

An upholstered vintage tan bench with nail head trim offers flexible seating, with a bright orange throw on top for a pop of color.

Indoor and Outdoor Living

When the sliding glass door is fully open, the media room and covered patio outside can together act as the ultimate indoor/outdoor entertaining and relaxing space.

Connection to Porch

A white sliding glass door connects the media room to the relaxing covered porch outside.

Relax and Unwind

Off-white carpet adds warmth to the comfortable media room, located just off the terrace suite that was designed to give visitors a space to relax and unwind.

Decorative Throw Pillows

Decorative throw pillows in different colors and patterns are paired with a nature print throw that adds comfort and warmth to the striped sectional sofa.

Glass Side Table

Ceramic vases and books add height and pattern to the top of the glass side table, with a bottom shelf for board games and artistic accessories.

Window Treatments

Dark gray and white curtains with a touch of yellow add pattern to the room, and provide shade when needed for watching TV.

Glass Coffee Table

A rectangular glass coffee table with metal base has a long top large enough for a tray of drinks and vase of flowers, as well as a short stack of books and well-chosen accessories.

Great Flow

The media room enjoys easy access to the adjoining terrace suite bedroom and bath located just steps away.

Adjoining Spaces

The media room also sits adjacent to the home's exercise room with top-of-the-line equipment, located on the other side of the doorway to the right of the well-designed dry bar.

Dry Bar Details

The dry bar includes a built-in under counter refrigerator with drawers for bottles of water and other beverages, and closed storage for entertaining essentials. The bar top offers room for serving trays, as well as eye-catching sculptures and framed photos that personalize the space.

Beautiful Backdrop

Honed and polished ceramic gray and white tiles in a chevron pattern create an eye-catching backdrop behind the dry bar.

Friendly Floor Plan

The media room's central location on the lower level contributes to the home's great flow, that includes connected spaces made for easy living and entertaining.
