Fresh Family-Friendly Basement

Designer Sarah Barnard relied on vibrant orange hues and outdoor elements give this typical basement a light and airy vibe.

Go contemporary, go luxe, and have access to the outdoors, and both generations will want to spend time together as one family found after designer Sarah Barnard took charge and fashioned a light-filled indoor-outdoor room.

What were the main items on this family's wish list?

Indoor/outdoor experience; space for entertaining; family-friendly; space for parents and children to watch TV together.

Keeping the basement light and bright.

Providing lots of seating via a sectional and occasional chair and having a desk that’s integral with the entertainment console.

I’m a super-detailed over-planner, so everything came in the right color and size by the deadline! It’s always nice when things go as planned.

This project allowed me to create a really appropriable family space that incorporates the owners’ interests and style.

The side table with real shagreen top, hand-carved mahogany conch shell from Negril, tonal textiles that come across as very rich looking visually.
