Project River Walk: Basement Reveal

December 7, 2020

We’re heading back to Project River Walk today for the basement reveal, including the family room, game area, second kitchen, theatre and powder bath. This home was cold and lacked personality before, but now it’s warm, inviting, and primed for hosting a party.

For the family room, we did a little shopping with their existing furnishings. They had a few pieces used in different spaces throughout their home we wanted to incorporate, including the chairs, ottoman, rug and sectional. While it’s great to start fresh with a room and select every single piece that goes into a space, it’s budget conscience and smart to look at what the clients already have to see if you can make it work before scratching everything and starting over. Looking at items in a new light– and in a new space– can give them another life.

We used so many great Stagg Design Shop accessories and pillows down here. I’ll link them at the bottom of this post.

With large spaces, sometimes the design dilemma is adding in enough furniture. I love the console table and accessories we added at the bottom of the stairs, and the game/lounge table we placed in a large empty walk-thru area. I envisioned a big Super Bowl Party down here and multiple families hanging out together.

This home has a full kitchen downstairs, but we still wanted it to feel kind of like a bar, where you could walk up, grab some snacks, or sit and chat with the cook behind the counter.

I love how it feels strong and soft at the same time.

Open and adjacent to the family room and kitchen, the grand theatre space doesn’t block the party from the rest of the gang. We added baskets full of super soft blankets so guests could help themselves.

The prettiest little powder bath is nearby for guests. We wanted it to feel high contrast and I love the black and white details.

And there you have it! The perfect place to host a party, or hunker down in quarantine. This is a weird, weird time, folks.

We’re now booking clients into the new year! We’d love to hear about your project. You can learn more about our services here and tell us about your design needs.

I hope you are having a peaceful and healthy December. If you follow me on instagram, you saw I’ve been battling a bizarre bout of viral meningitis. I’m hopeful I’m finally on the mend, and I’m so grateful for each of your well wishes. As the year comes to a close, I’m filled with gratitude for my health and my family.

xx, Jen
