Today we're revealing the combined living/casual dining space we created in what used to be our client's formal dining room. Located just off the the newly remodeled kitchen, the goal was create open sight lines into a space that both kids and adults could enjoy.
We broke the room into three distinct areas - dining, living, and kid zone. One of the easiest decisions we made was converting their existing built-in window seat into a dining set-up. This opened up the middle of the room for a casual living area. We sourced a cozy loveseat with kid-friendly, washable upholstery and added two leather poufs for added comfort. To ground the overall space but also make it feel like it's own distinct living zone, we layered in a colorful patterned rug - which added warmth and texture to the entire room. Bonus! We utilized the corners of the room for just the kiddos. We styled their existing toy bin and easel in one corner, and sourced a fun play table with matching chairs (and storage!) in the other corner.
Finally, we moved their existing stair case opening from the kitchen into this room by opening up a wall. We had a custom stair runner installed with a style of carpet that created a cohesive flow from the stairs into the new living/dining space. We also removed the french doors separating their formal living room from this room. Both design changes allowed for more natural light to flow through this open concept space.
This open concept area is located just off our client's brand new kitchen. Another fun fact. The kitchen was designed by our design bestie, Katy Popple Design. That's right. Our Ferree Street Project was the first design collaboration executed by CMH + KPD. CMH handled all the paint selections, furnishings and interior styling while KPD focused on the kitchen and deck designs. We invite you to follow KPD on Instagram for space reveals on the latter.
