The Washington Post "House Calls"

Recently The Washington Post came knocking on the door of Schelfe and Associates.  Tim Schelfe was asked to provide a design vignette for a weekly column in the Washington Post called "House Calls".  House Calls has been a popular column for the Post in which homeowners contact the Post asking for serious design help on a home project.  The designer would then work with the existing space, provide design ideas and provide the creative direction to get the project done.  The designer is also challenged to work with a moderate fixed budget and the selections need to be sourced locally and available for purchase directly by the homeowner.

Tim's challenge was to redesign a Family Room.
The Before...  

The After...

Tim created a less cluttered contemporary style for the new look of this Family Room, including adding a creamy white sectional, a circular cocktail table with a polished chrome base and matching wood stained consoles flanking the fireplace wall.  Accents of crimson red and burnt orange add color and detail to the room!
