e-Design: Transitional Family Media Room

I’m sharing another example of my e-Design services today, this time for a US client.

Get the Look: Sketch London

Sketch London has been on my list of places to check out for afternoon tea for a long time. I mean, seriously, look at this place: A lot of the elements could work in a residential space too.

This year was one of the first we haven’t hosted overnight guests for Christmas, but it got me thinking about how we’d do it in this house if we wanted to in the future. We don’t have a dedicated guest room (or even bed), but I’m sure we could carve out a comfy space for visitors.
