The Schroeder family asked chip for an outdoor space where their family could come together and create, so in his design, Chip included an art studio so that the family could come together and have a space to create and keep their art.
Chip Wade and his crew from HGTV's Elbow Room removed an old, dilapidated playground and replaced it with an inviting art studio so that the Schroeders could pursue their passion for creativity. The studio is serene with a beautiful chandelier, plush chairs and beautiful art painted by the family.
Bright Williamson bought this Savannah home in 1999 before he married his wife Allison. Though they initially planned to sell it, the couple decided to instead fix it up to accommodate their two sons and a collection of art, family heirlooms and treasures from their world travels. The result is a bright, open plan space with his-and-her living rooms and a convenient location close to the water for this water-loving family.
The Schroeders wanted a place to play and be creative together, so Chip Wade and his team from Elbow Room answered the family's requests. He created gardens throughout the space so that the family could spend time together in nature. The crew also included aspects that the family enjoys, such as a chicken coop, a hammock, a fire pit and an art studio.
Since the homeowner's main focus in the design of his home was spending time with his family, designers created an open plan kitchen with plenty of space to prepare, cook and enjoy meals together. State of the art appliances and tech features have been cleverly hidden behind cabinet doors and in the kitchen island to maintain the design's seamless and polished appearance.
In Rumaan’s study, where he brings his literary creations to life, classic furnishings have been mixed with the family’s enduring love of art. Above his desk, a piece by local artist Jas Knight casts a glow. And on the desk, a work by artist Kehinde Wiley and vintage Princess Diana doll are sculptural elements. The Princess Diana piece was discovered while traveling and became an inspiring element for Rumaan’s latest book.
