Chicago-Style Family Room

An empty, bland living space is updated with a rich brown color and unique seating areas.

After: Rich, Warm Colors

The homeowners decide to use the expertise of Van Tullis, whose design emphasizes height, balance and eclectic details. The room is broken into three distinct seating areas with the main one surrounding the new media center. The custom-designed entertainment center reaches to the ceiling to emphasize the height of the room and provides plenty of storage for the couple's electronics. Roman shades are added to the windows, and the room is painted a rich brown color.
