Behind The Design: Kid Friendly and Classic
McKenzie met (via Facetime!) with this client to determine her needs, style preferences and to virtually walk through the space! With a beautiful new construction home comes an open concept floorplan, which can be a challenge for two reasons.
1. It can be difficult to ensure each space has it's own personality while still remaining cohesive with the rest of the home.
2. Family rooms often turn into multi-purpose rooms which means when it's time to entertain clearing away the clutter can be tricky!
The homeowner wanted to transform her space into a beautiful room that represented her classic style while remaining functional for her children and entertaining extended family.
McKenzie selected a Crypton performance fabric in Jacob Porcelain for the sofa and another performance fabric in Starlight Natural from our Sustain line for the two accent chairs. When mixing light-colored fabrics and small children, performance fabrics are the way to go! Crypton performance fabrics are stain-resistant so you don't have to worry about sippy cup spills or peanut butter handprints ruining your furniture. Upholstery made for families.
Instead of a coffee table, we opted to leave space in the center of the room for play. When the children are older a coffee table will be an easy addition. We incorporated additional seating using two of our popular Masquerade poufs (dressed in a beautiful Chit Chat Denim fabric!) and additional accent chairs to flank the entertainment piece, bringing in texture and interest. For beautiful media storage (goodbye TV cords!) and additional toy storage, the Townsend sideboard serves as the perfect space to hide the clutter.
The color palette leans neutral so McKenzie brought in a pop of color with two Harlequin garden stools. The stools not only bring in a fun blue, but they're sturdy enough to serve as end tables the kiddos can't knock over. Well, never say never when kiddos are involved but these budget-friendly garden stools are a safer bet than large end tables and lamps.
