Bright, textured chairs and a mural make a hangout space the energetic spot it deserves to be for kids and teens. The modern lounge chairs and sofa table have softened and curved edges. The spiraling hoops on the chandelier are eye-catching and fit with the circular elements in the mural and seating. The room by Jo Rabaut Designs, Southface and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was in a Southeastern Designer Showhouse.
An inviting sectional sofa and stylish storage mix with interesting textures and earthy elements to create a lower level media room for relaxing and catching up on the latest TV shows and must-see movies.
This room is a stylish TV hangout and playroom, a bright, teen-friendly space that includes black shelving and offers a smart spot for game storage. Bright pillows and a plush green rug encourage kid-friendly play.
"We sold our big house with a bonus room 15 years ago so that we could afford to start over and do what we love for a living," says designer Christina Britt Lewis of The Redesign Company. "This is a choice we never regret, but we make big boys and they have big friends. When they needed more space, we redesigned our garage. We used what we already had—a ping pong table we bartered for, the twin beds our teenage boys had outgrown for seating—and saved by considering it a three-season space and not installing heat or air conditioning. We hung trail maps of mountains we have conquered and set lists from concerts we loved in cheap frames for 'art' that brings back fun family memories."
Exposed concrete walls give this basement hangout an industrial vibe. The space is made more inviting with a pool table, large black and white portraits and a white couch with bold lettered throw pillows.
This fun teen girl's room is a seating area designed for hanging out with friends. The space features a mix of patterns and bold color. The mod furniture, striped rug, funky chandelier, dramatic window treatments and eclectic accessories pop against bright white walls.
The upstairs space in this contemporary townhouse is transformed into a fun entertaining area. A high-top table and chairs sit next to a flatscreen TV for watching sports, while a comfortable gray sectional is the ideal spot to relax. Friends can get competitive over a game of ping pong, and a pair of domino stools adds a whimsical touch.
These vintage-style pendants illuminate the quartz countertops and wooden barstools, an ideal spot for the family to congregate. The dining spot sits adjacent to a covered patio, bringing in lots of natural light.
Penny tiles are used behind the stained concrete bar to create a cool backsplash display with the alphabet. Rows of wine glass racks flank each side for the bartender's handy access. Black leather barstools pull up to the bar, which also features a sleek penny tile facade.
One wall in this multipurpose room is lined with cabinets, shelves and a built-in desk, creating an ideal workspace. A comfy sofa, an armchair and a TV fill the rest of the room, ensuring the space is fit for relaxation and quality family time.
