Creating a sitting area in a bedroom doesn't require much space. A cozy green club chair and ottoman carve out the reading nook in the twin suite of HGTV Dream Home 2013, where two batik prints by artist Chariklia Zarris draw the eye.
And when the owners want to escape the sun for a little while? They only need to follow a gravel path to this secluded sitting area. Here, tall trees form a ring around the brick, creating a shaded spot to read or chat with friends.
Rows of French doors stretch all along the backside of the house opening onto this breezy, casual living area and making it simple to join the indoors with the backyard. Marble columns help set off the sitting room and are a crisp contrast to the luxurious gray marble floors.
A durable area rug and solution dyed acrylic fabrics keep this stylish space safe from the elements. With a fireplace ahead and soft sofas all around, both the kids and the adults will feel comfortable into the evening.
A gray area rug softens the wood floors in this open office and seating area. White wood planks create a cottage-inspired ceiling, while the neutral sofa pairs with an comfortable armchair and upholstered bench for a casual living space.
To make this guest bedroom feel a little more like home, designers added a sitting room to the space. This space features a custom sofa with scalloped nailhead detail and a custom ottoman, both by Coddington Design, a cream leather, vintage Henredon can chair, wallpaper by Osborne and Little and a wool rug.
A cozy fireplace anchors this side of the terrace, creating a warm, relaxing space to gather. The addition of stylish and durable outdoor furniture completes the space, making it the perfect spot for a low key gathering.
With a stacked stone fire pit and six white chairs, this outdoor space becomes a comfortable spot to gather with friends. The hillside and home both provide shelter from the wind, while plants offer a touch of greenery.

The owner wanted to incorporate her own art into her overall theme throughout Found boutique. Her unique style is represented through the watercolor art and fabulous geometric wallpaper. She also wanted to incorporate her love of pattern and gold, so she used a Lucite and brass bench that has a faux serpent fabric.
