For our family room, I craved a formal library, but with the comfort to slouch into a plush sofa and watch movies or read as a family.
The initial vision was in line with the neutral tonality of the home, but something wasn’t working. The room felt incomplete, so we enveloped the walls and ceiling in deeply saturated navy plaster, which offered a suede-like quality. The dark hue demanded furniture that was equally weighted in form and color; we added a bespoke sofa designed by Giancarlo Valle and a jewel-toned fringed chair and velvet ottoman inspired by Milanese design.
Once transformed, the room became the cozy nook it wanted to be.
