Woodview Music Room
My clients asked me to transform their current living and dining room into a music room as their children enjoy playing their Baby Grand piano on a regular basis. The wall and french door that was between the living and dining room was removed and as a new focal point in the now elongated room, I designed a linear electric fireplace with storage pullouts for some of their music books along the bottom on either side as well as floating shelves above the pullouts. The shelves are underlit to highlight the objects on the shelves below. Their wall to wall carpet was removed and new hardwood was installed. Ceilings were scraped and pot lights were placed throughout the space. My client loves artwork by Toronto based artist Sharon Barr so she commissioned a piece from her and that sits above the fireplace. We also installed the “Frame” TV by Samsung on the other side of the fireplace which mimics another piece of artwork nicely framed. My client already had 2 beautiful occasional chairs that we designed 6 years earlier so we re-purposed them in this room to sit in front of the fireplace. In the cozy sitting area, we grounded it with a beautiful silk and wool area rug, added a comfortable leather ottoman, a small round swivel chair, a beautiful contemporary sectional and a set of nesting end tables. My client’s once dated and unused space is now a well-used dual purpose room that the whole family can enjoy!
