English Lodge Family Room

A bland family room with all the makings of an English lodge gets a simple makeover.

  • This room has many elements that complement each other but they need an overlying theme to bring the entire room together.
  • A new mantel breaks up the overpowering brick fireplace tying it in with the rest of the living space.
  • The furniture is spread around the edges of the room making the space seem distant and cold.
  • Much detail is given to the windows surrounding the living space. Window panes and fabric panels are added to warm the space from every angle.
