There was a time in custom luxury home design that most clients requested a dedicated home theater/media room. Today with Netflix and Chill, clients want a more open, multi-functional media room. We were presented with a blank slate with white concrete floors, crisp white walls and a high ceiling, along with an amazing view of Camelback Mountain. Architect C.P. Drewett said he was inspired by Mexican Modern Architect Luis Barragan, and the clean organic feel became our inspiration while also encouraging us to create a more casual lounge vibe by adding a mix of moody textures to the room.
Playing off the existing black paneling on the TV wall, we used a Nile blue textural woven jacquard wallcovering aptly named Gaucho Cloth–inspired by South American Gaucho clothing. To anchor the space, we incorporated a textural wool rug offset with four luxurious chaise lounges upholstered in a deep Ochre Boucle fabric, the perfect spot to shut off the world for a few hours. For a little fun and whimsy, what is better than a statement chair! We didn’t want to block the view, so the carved wood Dual Hand chair fit the space perfectly. The Studio Floor lamp harkens back to the old theater days and had us feeling nostalgic for a little “Casablanca” moment! And what is more nostalgic than a true neon sign custom made for the space. Antique Spanish terra cotta pots gracefully showing their age are pure sculpture in this clean modern space. Finally driving home the lounge vibe, a fabulous painting by Michael Carson adds that bit of sultry sophistication to finish off the room.
