Frankfort Home: Basement Family Room

In this Frankfort Home: Basement Family Room, the brick which separated this room from the Gathering Room via an arched opening adds a lot of character…there’s just a lot of it.

Another challenge was the raised hearth. We found this sleek media cabinet from Crate&Barrel that fit perfectly on the hearth.

The narrow rectangular mirror with antiqued glass and thin harlequin frame fits nicely above the black mantle.

The sectional in a gray flannel fabric is perfect for this large space and complements the Repose Gray (SW7105) on the walls. The oversized clock balances out the size of the sectional.

 Accent Colors

To pop our accents colors of orange and deep teal, we added custom pillows in these fun fabrics. The round ottoman in a teal leather is on casters so it can easily be moved to accommodate the sleeper sofa for overnight guests. We nestled a small swivel chair in an orange fabric between the sectional and hearth.

Adding Textures

We positioned the homeowner’s antique table behind the sectional for art projects and crafts. The homeowner’s rattan chairs add texture. The lamps – one with burlap shade and one with large glass base – bring in natural elements.The linen drapery panels frame the large window covered in a soft fabric shade. The antique sewing machine is the perfect size for the corner. The homeowner’s unique pottery and colorful artwork complete the vignette.


Piano Nook

The wall opposite the window is home for the family’s piano. We continued with our accents colors with the accessories, artwork, and textiles. The armed floor lamp is perfect for the low club chair we reupholstered in this fabulous paisley fabric.

The black armoire houses toys, blankets and extra linens. The colorful artwork and small chair finish off the corner. The gray carpet with a subtle pattern is soft underfoot and the perfect backdrop for all of the pops of color dispersed through the large space.

This Frankfort Home: Basement Family Room is a light airy space with pops of wonderful oranges and dark teals and proves that the basement does not have to be a dungeon or graveyard for your leftover furniture.
