As part of our renovation of this Earthy Modern home, we had a fun challenge:…

The cozy den design started off a blank slate, a nook off of the main living and dining areas. It was ripe with possibilities of what it could be, but our designers envisioned cozy-up-with-popcorn-and-Netflix space.
The first item to be installed was the wallpaper, a paperweave in a diamond pattern. It offers more depth and richness than paint alone, but the real statement-maker is the addition of a pair of Ikea cabinets creating the effect of built-in cabinets because of its matching color.
Next up, we installed sliding doors to block off the den from the rest of the open-concept space, and installed a geometric pendant to add some sparkle. The doors, a wood shade reminiscent of classic mid-century modern design, play perfectly with the brass light fixture.
To finish out the cozy den design, a pair of linen slipcovered sofas sit across from each other, lending a casual, carefree vibe to the space. Luxe pillows and throws are layered onto the sofas, and wall sconces offer task lighting should the residents want to read instead of turn on the TV.
Instead of a coffee table, we decided to save a bit of space with poufs, which are the perfect spot to rest weary feet, and small side tables for drinks and more. The cabinets, filled the trinkets from the family, become the room’s focal point, distracting from the TV.
