What each space contains from an interior design point of view
1. PlayStation/VR Area – we needed cabinetry to accommodate all the pieces for the PlayStation.
The custom cabinet needed to house the large TV, PlayStation tower, a charging station area, and accessories.
We needed to include plenty of outlets in the custom cabinet and a sound bar.
A subwoofer was also included.
Sensors were placed on the ceiling at a set distance apart.
As the home is contemporary, we selected a 3-dimensional panelled custom cabinet with a dark oak back with grey mat lacquer doors and drawers – all the cabinetry in the room is hand made in Italy.
2. Projector – The idea for the large projector screen was for the homeowner to display a variety of 'window'” since the room is in the lower level and had one window, but this needed to be covered to keep the glare out.
So, the large projector screen was a way to feel like you are outside or even in a different country – the owner could display a mountain scene in Montana, Atlantic ocean in Portugal, or a beach in Hawaii.
It’s also very relaxing and peaceful.
The projector will be used on sports game days, so all their friends can come over to watch the game.
We included a floating cabinet underneath the screen for storage and to set the projector on – this is made from grey mat lacquer with led lighting around perimeter.
All the furniture in the media room is custom, made in Italy and has a clean, contemporary look to coordinate with the style of the home – it is very durable for adults and children, and is pet friendly.
The modular chairs have movable backs so the person sitting can face different directions.
The ottomans are convenient for two children to play PlayStation and they are light and easy to move around.
The sectional is so comfortable and spacious, including a chaise with a movable back so someone could sit there as well.
All the tables are made of dark oak with a grey mat lacquer and a titanium base – they come apart so they can be moved to a different area of the room for large parties.
3. Feature bookcase wall - the homeowners wanted something very unique on this wall – a 'wow' factor, and I believe we achieved it with the custom cabinetry, hand made in Italy.
The back of the bookcase is in dark oak, while all the shelving is grey mat lacquer with 9 titanium grilles for accent.
We graced the shelving unit with hand blown LED glass vases, flowers, plants, and, of course, books.
The bookcase has dimmable LED lighting for a beautiful ambiance. It also has 4 double-door cabinets for storage – perfect for the owners' book club meetings.
4. Piano room – this room is like the lobby to the lower level, the entrance area to the space.
It was important to feel warm and inviting for family and friends, but at the same time, elegant, sophisticated, and durable!
It is also adjacent to the theatre room, media room, and wine cellar.
We utilised a curved sofa here, with two movable backs for versatility.
The furniture pieces coordinate with the media room.
To further co-ordinate with the media room, we brought in artwork that looks like flowing water and a contemporary rug with splashes of teal, aqua and cream.
