Cozy Daybeds & Throws!

It’s that time of year when the nights are starting to get cold. When you get home, all you want to do is snuggle up under a blanket and read a good book. Daybeds are the perfect snuggle nook and when you add a throw it’s heaven.

Benches are a great seating option;  instead of two people sitting in chairs, three to four people can sit on the bench! Also, a round bench can be placed in the corner for decorative purposes and pulled to the table to accommodate.

If your family is anything like mine, extra seating is a must during the holidays! These are some lovely fold up chairs that can be used and then stored once guests and family leave.


The holidays are such a great time of year to relax with and enjoy your family! Is your dining room ready for everyone?

Faux Sho-House: Play Room!

Last but not least, the Faux Sho's final post, the playroom (for young and older). What fun a playroom can be! It’s a high activity space: tumbling, playing instruments, music listening, art creating, playhouse and lego building, movie/TV watching, gaming, lounging, entertaining! Often an odd shaped space, long and skinny, the room over the garage, an attic build out, basement build out, odd pass through room…these rooms are unusual and perfect for a multi-tasking.  I prefer to think of these spaces as separate zones based on activity and because of their high energy these rooms can take bold design elements.

I love all things abstract and color but with a little grounding and practicality. This American Leather sofa is large, plush and versatile.  Available in leather or fabric, the backs can raise and lower to meet any body frame. It softly says, come lounge (or jump) on me…I’m comfy! By adding abstract pattern pillow,s from Dedar, we create a simplified graphic statement. Accompanying the sofa is an ottoman from Montis. Pack it with books, mags or toys. It’s soft yet has a flat surface, has rounded corners for safety and offers a punch of color.

Dedar Pillow Fabric & American Leather Sofa

Purcell Living’s Cuscino easy chair is constructed of a quilted synthetic leather stretched over foam.  Extremely comfortable for gaming and movie watching, but can take a  beating!  We’ve paired it with Made Good’s Lambert table.  Formally know as the potato table, we love this recycled cement paper on wire frame’s asymmetrical curves!

We couldn't pass up this chaise lounge by Patricia Urquiola!  It’s wooden and steel frame with woven cord upholstery would make a lovely place to read or work on your laptop! Paired with this versatile floor lamp which allows you to direct light where and how you need it!  This lamp is available through BHD. 4

With most of the rooms lending themselves to active specific areas, use flooring to define the spaces. Where tumbling, art,  and indoor wall climbing happen we placed cushy rubber puzzle tiles.  Interface’s new plank-style carpet tiles are the perfect practical soft flooring for all other areas.  Both easy to clean, repair and replace if ever needed!

Playrooms can never have enough storage!  We love this concept image of a wall full of asymmetrical shelving to hold toys, books, and movies.  For game storage we chose B+N Industries collaboration with Rex Ray, the Ellipses and Waves credenza.  Practical, functional and absolutely fun all in one!

Playrooms are the perfect place for wall treatments!  We love Designing Solution’s chartreuse climb wall!  And for an accent wall we chose Flat Vernacular’s Peaks and Valley’s wallpaper to give an area an extra special pop!

We hope that our Faux-Sho playroom design has inspired you to look at your playroom design differently; whether this space is for the young or young at heart. How can you incorporate some of these design details into your play area?

Thanks for following our Faux Sho House Tour. We've enjoyed the challenge and exploration of designing our own spaces. Hopefully you have gathered inspiration and ideas along the way. Until our next Sho-House returns happy designing! -The BHD team
