Having a place for our teens to hang out has become an important part of a home in today’s culture. A space that is set apart from the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day of family life.
This home has a bonus room above the 3-car garage and is perfect for entertaining the fellow volleyball team members or cheer squad.
Of course, electronics, like a flat screen TV and gaming system, must be included in the design, along with comfy seating. Fortunately, this space allows for a game room area including a ping-pong table making it the ideal teen crash pad.
The theme selected for this space was inspired by the owners’ love of country music and also her past involvement as an Atlanta Falcon’s cheerleader.
We began by painting the room a welcoming and comfortable warm grey color. We then arranged a media nook by using a beautiful, soft, orange sectional that created seating for TV and movies, lounging or even a makeshift bed for unexpected weekend sleepovers.
This fantastic slipper chair was a piece that belonged to the client but needed updating. Reupholstering it in this funky Emily Black and Natural fabric by Premier Prints made it an eye-striking, yet practical lounging option.
The window seat cushion and bolster pillows were constructed with a coordinating natural and black fabric by Riley Blake Designs in Decor Black Diamonds. For comfort, a 4” thick memory foam mattress topper was used and filled the seat nicely.
Opposite the media nook is a sports corner. A keepsake toy chest was transformed into a bench for spectators watching a game of round robin ping-pong. The toy chest was chalk painted in jet black. Completing the the look, the memory foam padded seat cushion was finished with a coordinating
coordinating black and natural Waverly Modern Geometric fabric.
The crowning touches for this fun sports area are the shadow boxes which contain the Atlanta Falcon’s cheerleader uniforms worn by the homeowner, an autographed jersey, and other significant Falcon memorabilia.
