Frankfort Home: Basement Gathering Room
In this Frankfort Home: Basement Gathering Room we wanted to design a space with multiple functions. As you enter from the Family Room through the brick arched opening, directly to your left is the homeowner’s china cabinet in a warm wood tone paired with a Colonial Windsor spindle back chair.
Directly across from the entrance is a small Kitchenette which houses a corner sink, a microwave, and a beverage center. The cabinetry by PC Homes in New Albany, IN has a painted black finish with a bronze glaze. The countertops are quartz by Cambria. The faucets and cabinetry hardware is in a brushed nickel finish to pop off the dark cabinetry. We did not want this area to feel like a Kitchen, so in lieu of upper cabinets, we did chunky floating shelves the same wood tone as the china cabinet nestled between the two bump outs. We accessorized with the homeowner’s collection of white dish ware. The homeowner found this fabulous wood cutout of the state of Kentucky at a local art gallery.
For the seating area, we paired two of the homeowner’s existing club chairs upholstered in a gray fabric with two oversized swivel chairs in an off-white linen fabric. We grouped the seating around this rustic 36″ round coffee table in warm wood tone with wrought iron accents. A drop leaf table placed in front of the window and antique cabinet in the corner complete the furnishings in the space.
Walls, Floors and Windows
The plush gray carpet as well as the Repose Gray (SW7105) were continued into the Gathering Room. We also repeated the soft shades and linen drapery panels on the windows.
Finishing touches include a set of 3 oversized leaf prints in our accent colors, a set of fabulous rooster vases, and an orange plate and pottery lamp.
We hope you have enjoyed our trip to Frankfort and this wonderful Basement. As you can see, gray was the perfect backdrop for popping our accent colors of orange and dark teal. Check out these other living space where we have used gray in our design. Enjoy!
