PROJECT PREVIEW: DURAND MILL STUDY LOUNGE

Well I’m back in Emory Village (yay!!) with not one but TWO great projects. I’ll share more about the second one later this week. The first is a study / sunroom for a young family of four. This room will serve as a workspace for the parents and then as a homework area for their two young daughters. On the weekend, this room will also be a second “viewing room” on game days. Though this family loves football this study lounge will not  be a sports-themed space. 


The decorating plan for the new study lounge has a relaxed, coastal feel that invokes serenity and displays an appreciation of nature. Two of the four walls have a bank of windows that don shutters. I love how Bermudian it all feels. I suppose my mind is still vacationing. 

Cool colors like the blue sectional upholstered in performance fabrics and the multi-colored inspiration art above the sofa are the room’s basis for color. However we’ve discussed substituting the artwork for a round mirror which would do even more to open up this modest space. 


Here I’m sharing a few computer renderings I used in the presentation. You can see how the natural materials, the grasscloth wallcovering, bamboo nesting tables, Palm-blade ceiling fan and Tuscan brown desks add back warmth into the space. 

The opposite side of the room contains both a corner desk and another single desk where two can work side by side. 

Pan the room once more and catch a glimpse of another wall where I’m proposing black and white photographs. I can imagine pictures of their family vacations hung here along with the girls’ artwork. 

I predict you will see reveal pictures very soon! This family is excited for the next steps and have already given their stamp of approval! Stay tuned!
