Designing a Den Part 3

by Lisa Hoyt on 02/09/14

Now, in addition to attaining a color palate that creates interest and ambiance  in a well designed den, the next point of importance in designing an outstanding den, is to decide what your focal points are in this space. A focal point for a den will be either the wonderful bookshelves designed with interesting lighting, possible TV incorporated into it, artwork, interesting books and accessories, and a possible ladder that moves on a bar across the top of the piece and/or a lovely fireplace in the room. Other focal points can also be looking out to a gorgeous view through amazing architecturally designed windows or even the desk itself with the accompaniment of seating as well . You can have many focal points in one room. The important thing is that you use them all to the advantage of the space. Then stand back and watch what it's incredible impact can have on it's viewers.

2nd article on Designing a Den

by Lisa Hoyt on 01/25/14

Next, you need to determine your color palate. A den is usually a place that is a man's retreat, therefore it needs to be painted in a warm camel color---emulating a cave---but a sophisticated cave. Then you can add different shades of brown from dark to light, cream, soft yellows, touches of red and/or orange and touches of green. Earthy tones are so lovely together. Then the flooring should be done in a nice medium dark brown wood, distressed, wide planked--- preferably--- and a bit different in tone to the builtins. All color added such as the creams, other camels and browns, greens, reds, oranges, and yellows are colors that get added to the design of the room in the area rugs, the pillows, the throws, and the artwork. The larger pieces such as the sofa or the large chairs are always done in neutral tones. This gives the room always a finished, pulled together, long lasting design that the homeowners will enjoy for many many years to come.
