Sometimes even we can't believe the transformation a room takes- and this room is one of them. We had so much fun on this project with our LOVELY client Jeanne. She has the most beautiful, quaint home with a family room that had a tricky dividing and load-bearing wall. This wall made for a challenge, but with a pretty sweet outcome if we do say so ourselves. Who doesn't love a daybed reading nook?!?!
The long and skinny room felt cramped, so we did our best to open up the space and create a clean and open, yet cozy feel. We cut back the dividing wall as much as possible (not much!), added a window in the existing office nook (which turns out there was a window there already at one point), and added a custom built-in daybed with lots of storage that makes us want to move in. Also, what do you do with a long blank wall in a narrow room? A super long Ikea console hack, of course. Enjoy! -d+e
