New Sitting Room

We created a sitting room off the large master bedroom that adds much-needed storage space as well as a fireside sitting area.

Window seats create additional storage and seating space while shortening the length of the 30’x11’ room; a library and writing desk at the opposite end serves the same purpose. Two fireside chairs and an ottoman face the fireplace as well as a television above the mantle for cozy evenings.

It was purchased with the bedroom furniture by my clients many years ago. It is very beautiful and very graceful.

Both the desk and chair were purchased many years ago with the bedroom furniture. Look for manufacturers who seel Country French furniture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The sitting room serves as an oasis for the couple. "This is a sitting room for two; there are plenty of other places in the house for the whole family to watch TV together," Rich says."The wool rug is a beautiful large-scale Victorian floral, so I used mini-prints and solid fabrics on everything else," she explains.

The time helped them see what they needed from the renovation. Meanwhile, Rich worked with them on other rooms one by one. The old shower stall was small, dark and outdated. "Reconfiguring the space made room for a state-of-the-art, spa-like angled shower with a large seat, shower head, body sprays, rain head and personal shower," Rich says.

Rich replaced them with a smaller wood paneled door, which allowed room for a large shower stall. Rich reused the French doors on the linen closet, lining them with tight shirred panels in a pink mini-print to conceal the storage. The pile of laundry seen in the previous photos has been organized into lights, darks and dry cleaning in three hampers stored in the linen closet. Porcelain and glass tiles and the clear glass shower enclosure bounce the light around, transforming the formerly dark space into a light and relaxing refuge.
