It is no coincidence that since I wrote about my two story great room back in May that I have been getting more and more inquiries about designing tall spaces like these. I recently completed a great room that I’m looking forward to sharing with you all, but I’m waiting on my client’s permission to feature their space. In the meantime, here’s a reminder of what my great room looked like before and after:

This room is our central gathering place where we watch movies, play games, and entertain our guests. Since installing the drapery, I’ve gone a bit further in decorating the space by “shopping my house” for accessories to complete the look. This pair of glass lamps used to be in my master bedroom, but after being replaced they found a new home here! The cherry blossom tree used to be in my office and the gray/greenish vase was a freebie I found while rummaging through my friend’s garage!

 
 Such a tall space can be quite intimidating because of its expansive walls and soaring ceilings. Another concern people have is that the space is generally open to other areas of the house and they want to maintain a flow from one room to the other.

Lastly, I’ve been asked to address the fact that though the room is one that is “grand” in nature, it still should be warm and family-friendly. My little ones have no problem getting comfortable here in our home.

Do you have a room with tall ceilings? Need direction or custom window treatments? Contact me to schedule a consultation and let’s get busy in creating a space you can be excited about!
