We’re in the middle of working on a basement renovation that we’re really enjoying the design work. This space is a little area outside of a wine cellar that will be the kitchenette for an adjacent TV room. As we were building a palette we were thinking about something handsome, a ‘warm and inviting modern’ … whatever that is!  (love our designer words, huh?)  We started with a palette of neutrals on the walls, shiplap paneling and trim; deciding the cabinetry would be a darker blue. Layering on satin brass as an accent felt like the right direction to go as well.

I had these large sconces in mind to flank the wine cellar, really making a design statement and we found the cute little Hicks pendant to hang over the sink, adding a little jewelry there. As we’re working on this space we’ve been developing the TV room which has a faded navy/indigo rug and we’re bringing in a soft salmon pink herringbone fabric that our client loves (and we do too!) on a pair of vintage chairs. My goal would be to bring that palette into this space as well by adding some textural vintage rug. This vintage Persian rug from Chairish would be just perfect! I love how it’s coming together. The radiant heat flooring is being installed now so we will have a way to go until we start seeing a finished product, darn!
