Ellen Grasso IncTransitional Family Room, Dallas
This sophisticated metropolitan family room is the talk of the town. It connects the owners to their backyard, letting in lots of light from two directions. The space is fresh and inviting - the perfect place to hang out with the kids.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Put your sound system on one of the far ends of the room, along a short wall rather than the long wall. This allows the sound to travel out and diffuse and reflect toward the listener.
Floating shelves above and on both sides of the fireplace give the family room a clean, crisp feel; the strong horizontal lines of the shelves are repeated in the mahogany ceiling beams. "My clients didn't want the rustic look of old beams and really love the crisp look of these mahogany beams," says Grasso. Turquoise throws and earth-tone glassware add splashes of color to the otherwise neutral palette. Natural light floods the space through two lofty windows and wood panel doors.
