"When our client decided they needed more space, we took an unusual approach," says designer Kerrie Kelly of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. "We transformed their dated garage and turned it into a family-oriented lounge full of color and personality. The white rafters and ceiling keep it feeling open and spacious while the stripes add a fun sophistication. The new garage door even lets in natural light!"
A trio of windows are covered with bamboo blinds and framed with neutral curtains for full control of the natural light let into the room. A white sofa, white chaise and pair of chairs face in toward a leather trunk coffee table to create the sitting area. A square patterned rug decorates the black wood floor.
To showcase the collector's items in the living room, designers chose a neutral color palette to make the bold colors of the statues and other antiques pop. The bold, rich colors of the trunks, statues and the fireplace mantle bring warmth to the space, all the while being spotlighted by the large windows that allow in tons of natural light. This lights reflects off the white sofas and neutral walls, making these special pieces the focal points of the room.
Tufted brick red cushions add soft color against the natural greenery surrounding it in this backyard. Clovers give the ground a mossy look creating a natural carpet-like look. Succulent bouquets top the textured, artsy tables.
This captivating contemporary sofa features a high/low backrest and wood frame around the white cushion. Square patches of blue and neutral tones form the colorful carpeting. A pair of end table feature nailhead detailing over the metal legs. A red container doubles as a coffee table and compliments the throw pillows topping the sofa.
A natural wood island brings beautiful texture to the bright, white design of this country kitchen. Bar chairs make an eat-in area at the island. Natural light highlights the room and reflects off the black wood floor. Floating shelves support decorative storage over a white subway tile backsplash. A stainless steel range hood overlooks the white stovetop.
