Mom and Dad Get a Swanky Pad!

When this large family of 7 in Brookfield, Connecticut first approached us, Mom and Dad were looking for a space they could call their own, and with 5 kids under the age of 12, we completely understood! 

The Before

If you can believe it, their new home had three unused rooms along the south side of the house. An empty living room with a fireplace, a room with just a pool table and a home office that was really becoming more of a storage room than anything functional enough to call an office!

For any homeowner this could be quite daunting to think about, let alone imagine what could be. But not for the Designing Woman at DHI who knew just what to do! 

Interior Design at Work

With our measuring tape in hand, we got busy designing the space on paper, removing walls and dreaming up the perfect space for Mom and Dad. This included a stylish lounge area, swanky bar and pool table space designed for easy entertaining.

The new fireplace design called for a beautiful feature wall with floor to ceiling stacked stone, which created the perfect seamless backdrop to our stunning focal point, a sculptural twig inspired chandelier! In the bar area, dark wood cabinetry grounds the center of the space and was made completely functional with the addition of all the necessary appliances, two TV’s and storage any good bartender would love. The back of the room features all the space needed for a competitive game of pool with plenty of room to put down your beer and cheer for your favorite player!

The After

Mom and Dad were thrilled with their new playroom and delighted with the ease of transformation! Check out the video above to see a complete before and after video of our process!  

Dream big and always…IMAGINE FABULOUS!
