Breathing RoomTransitional Family Room, Chicago

A fresh take on traditional style, this sprawling suburban home draws its occupants together in beautifully, comfortably designed spaces that gather family members for companionship, conversation, and conviviality. At the same time, it adroitly accommodates a crowd, and facilitates large-scale entertaining with ease. This balance of private intimacy and public welcome is the result of Soucie Horner’s deft remodeling of the original floor plan and creation of an all-new wing comprising functional spaces including a mudroom, powder room, laundry room, and home office, along with an exciting, three-room teen suite above. A quietly orchestrated symphony of grayed blues unites this home, from Soucie Horner Collections custom furniture and rugs, to objects, accessories, and decorative exclamationpoints that punctuate the carefully synthesized interiors. A discerning demonstration of family-friendly living at its finest.

5. Movie theater magic. If ever there was a more suitable piece of furniture for TV and theater viewing, I haven’t discovered it. A rounded chair-and-a-half is commonly known as a “cuddle chair” because of how well it embraces two people and enmeshes them into each other. This convivial media room allows each family member to cheer for the home team or enjoy a flick without having to share the remote.

Becky Harris added this to The 20 Most Popular Basement Photos of 2015Dec 10, 2015

Sports center. A basement is a great place for the obsessed fan to hoot and holler at multiple games on multiple TVs and leave the rest of the house in peace. Wall paint: Old Soul, Benjamin Moore; Eos swivel chairs: Room & Board
