Owners of the Sacred Pepper wanted their main dining room to feel like a lounge, while still remaining elegant, so designers added serpentine banquettes to line the dining room and tables and chairs covered with rich, plush furniture in the center of the space. The luxuriousness of the materials in the space make this restaurant the perfect place to come when you want to enjoy a long meal with good friends.
The ultimate place to sit back and relax, this open concept lounge feels cozy and inviting, with a fireplace, mini bar and access to the pool. Ideal for entertaining, the space is adjacent to the Japanese Teppanyaki bar.
Brian made it feel part of the living space by extending the wallpaper into the nook, then arranging a low-slung banquette and small ottomans around a generous table.

"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!"
