Design by Breeze
Adding beams to the ceiling and using a limewash plaster on the walls gives the room a rustic, earthy vibe. To warm up the space (literally!), Giannasio added a fireplace, as well as cozy sofas to create a conversation-ready gathering spot.
This super soft Faux Fur Blanket is great for cozying up on the couch with a book. To keep the peace in their big group, the French family might want to consider buying two. No more boring accent furniture! The architectural silhouette and textured finish of this Kingsley Side Table will fancy up any sofa it stands next to.
Fabric isn’t your only option for accent pillows. Bring a little richness to the room with something more luxe, like this suede Four Square Pillow.
Sand-colored linen curtains separate the lounge area from the multifunctional space in the back of the room. A built-in bench along the back wall is the perfect spot for kids to hang out while the adults chat by the fire and can also double as seating for big dinner parties—just add long folding tables and some tablecloths!
“Having built-in flexibility is so important when you have a large family,” Giannasio says. “This room is now ready for endless game nights, conversation, and quality time with family and friends.”
