Family Room by Benedict August

Shelley Gardea Photography © 2012 Houzz

Design by: Benedict August

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The cozy family room features architectural details, such as the original lower moldings, that bring out the character of the home. The couple installed white paneling on the wall to create texture and sophistication. Erin and Dan both love to pair contrasts — large and small, shiny and matte, rough and smooth. In this space, plaid armchairs contrast with a dark leather sofa. A wooden cart coffee table provides storage and display space for books and magazines, and Roman shades dress the windows.
