Room Rx: Music Room

When I began working with this client, she had big plans for her home, shifting how the family made use of the various rooms on her first floor. What was once the family room was to become the "Music Room" and a place to study and work or play on the computer. The space had great bones, with a cozy fireplace (off center as it may be), beamed ceilings, and a built in bookcase, perfect for the "study" concept. What it needed was a cohesive look and greater functionality.

The plan was to re-use a number of pieces already owned (including a rug), design and build some additional cabinets and create a low maintenance room that would hold up to the wear and tear of the family's three boys, their friends and the dog. Originally we were going to ground the room with the existing wool sisal rug, but as decorating plans go, when you see something you love, you've got to roll with it. While shopping for the rugs for the other rooms in this project, a stunning wool stripe spoke to my client, and so became the foundation for the design. The rug incorporates the colors used throughout this home.

The space has really taken shape, just a few finishing touches are needed.  I'll share my plans for the built-ins, which were recently completed and are being put to good use, as well as the finished space, as soon as I get some photos together.

In the meantime if you want to see the other rooms that we have been working on in this home, here are a few links:


There will be a little radio silence here on Room Rx until early next week,  we will be spending some time at the beach with cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles! Can't wait!!!
What plans do you have to enjoy your upcoming Summer week-end?

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.

I can't wait to see this pan out too - I'm really curious whether you're going to touch those natural wood details or if you're going to leave them alone. I love those leather floor cushions and how you've also used that artwork that works so well with the color scheme you've got going. Have a great time at the beach! We're headed to an arts fest this weekend so I'm looking forward to that.

Beautiful!! Wish I had that much room in my office/library/music room!

Have a blast on vacation, sounds like fun!

This weekend I will be celebrating my 30th birthday! YAY!

Oooh, this is looking good! Love the large vintage poster and the patterned pillows! I'm with Holly, wondering if you're leaving all that wood or painting it!? Have a great time at the beach. I'm planning my annual neighborhood yard sale and it goes down on Saturday - we've got like 10 houses selling stuff. I'm hoping I can find some good, cheap buys;)

Love the rug and all the colors tie in beautifully Cathy. I do love any time of floor seating and the leather pillows will be such fun. Can't wait to see pics.

The rug has some great colors, and how great is that ceiling? Can't wait to see it all finished.
