A Breezy & Transitional Family Room

Family Room Design Project

Location: Ottawa, ON

Designer: Marina Pavlova


A very traditional home had to be redecorated to fit the style of a young couple who loved cool tones like blue, grey and green. The mahogany flooring had to stay. Kitchen in this home is open to the family room and is a mahogany colour as well.


This design was inspired by nature. A very tall alcove above the fireplace was wallpapered with a sky/cloud like wallpaper, decorated with a sun shaped mirror and birds. An extra deep sofa upholstered in an soft ivory performance fabric was the best fit for the growing family. An abstract stain resistant area rug was the perfect fit to marry the warmth of the floor and the cooler tones in decorative elements.
