The walls are faux painted in rich shades of oxblood red. Their dramatic finish is accented by white doors, window frames and crown moldings.
A textured beige carpet creates warmth underfoot year-round. The brick fireplace, with a built-in TV shelf, provides a cheering gas fire on cold winter evenings.
The furniture is upholstered in soft velour and placed at angles to the fireplace, creating an inviting conversation area. Three armless chairs line up on one side of the space, facing a comfortable full-size sofa on the other. A leather ottoman in the middle makes extra seating, or can be used as a make-shift coffee table.
Dark wood blinds cover two small windows on the fireplace wall. A colorful patterned drapery is pulled to the side of french doors that open to a back yard patio.
Opposite the fireplace, an irregular shaped wall makes the perfect backdrop for a raised bar table and four stools.
Other furnishings in the room include a bookshelf and a drop-leaf table that can be made circular for a game of cards.
Wall art consists of two sets of prints with matching frames. A giant stop watch mounted on the wall beside the french doors adds a touch of whimsy.
