Inviting Family Room

The custom stone fireplace is the focal point of this inviting Connecticut family room. Ample seating and a soothing color palette with a fresh mix of patterns and textures make this a comfortable spot to relax and enjoy movies by the fire.

That cactus is now about 10 years old. It was purchased in Texas and shipped north against all odds in the back of a moving van! It managed to survive and is thriving in this CT window!

I love this room, you said the size of the room is 20x16, would it work for a room 16wide (fireplace) side by 24 long?

I suggest that you develop a furniture plan on graph paper to determine what sized furnishings would fit best within your room dimensions. This exercise will provide you with the dimensions you need to search for when furniture shopping.

The striped just ended up being way too out of my price range. Thoughts on this one???

what color leather on the sofa?

The leather sofa is by Hancock & Moore and they call the leather color "Cavalier - Henna". It's a warm chestnut brown tone with a rusty undertone. Hope that helps!

Thank you! the blinds are made by Hunter Douglas in a tortoise shell finish that is not made anymore. However, they have many beautiful options to pick from.

Oh! Sorry for the confusion. If the sofas are not both leather then it sounds like they can live comfortably together in the same room with pillows and accessories to tie the room together. Have fun with your decorating!

This cowhide ottoman with horn legs was purchased at an eclectic shop in Austin, Texas. I suggest you do an online search for "cowhide ottoman" to find an array of cowhide covered options. Also, check out for some cow skin benches, etc..

The sofa in the front of the photo is leather by Hancock and Moore in the Henna color. It's 84" wide. Sorry for the delay in responding, but my reply never came through from my iPhone! This was purchased from a furniture store.

The fireplace was constructed from Connecticut field stone by a stone mason. The mantel and hearth are slabs of limestone. The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Litchfield Gray.

The chair is made by a "to the trade" furniture company that manufactures in North Carolina. They make private label furniture for designers and retail stores so you would not recognize their name as a retail brand (stores put their own brand name on the furniture). It is one of many companies I use as a resource in my design business. There are many great upholstery companies out there that will allow COM (customers own material) to be used for a custom piece, as was done with this chair.

Great shades. Would you please give me the brand and some advice on using a shade to cover multiple windows. - I like the shades and would love to know the brand. I'm trying to find a less expensive alternative to Conran Shades (Is there one or is everything a real step down?) I have three large windows in a row with only 6" between each window. Would you use one large shade, as you have done here for two windows, or would you use separate shades? Thank you.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Beth Rosenfield Design LLC
These shades are by Hunter Douglas, although they no longer make this exact color. They have many wonderful color choices. I believe there was a slight cost savings to do one shade over two windows vs. one shade on each window. Also, the larger the shade, the heavier it is to raise and lower. In your scenario I would do three separate shades. Depending on the length of your three windows I don't think HD would even make one shade that long, and it would be quite heavy. Good luck!

The hearth seat slab is called Indiana limestone. It's a bit porous and has been gently stained by the fireplace ashes, which can be minimized by sealing the stone. Mantel is same material with a natural rough edge.
