Kerrie L.Sacramento-based designer Kelly Kerrie Kelly has transformed this once-cluttered garage into a trendy living room suitable for a young family. After tidying up, the space was painted and acquired some eye-catching bright pieces of furniture. The result is a chic shared living room that proves that a good project can be budget friendly. “The finished premises turned out better than expected. This was confirmed by the family living here, who fell in love with him with all their hearts, ”the author says. We offer you to see for yourself. We have no doubt that this will not leave you indifferent. The original garage door opens at the push of a button, filling the room with natural light. There is another entrance to the structure through a side opening, but the gate creates a better air flow. Inspired by the elegant design of rural homesin Napa and Sonoma, located next door, the designer chose a calm gray and white palette for the basic color scheme of the room. Creating the look, she used shades of Swiss Coffee 23, Chadwick 217 and Greyswood 3958-3 from Kelly Moore. Difficult gray and white background set the tone for the room, andcomplementary colors helped turn it into a truly family living room. “It also required playfulness, which would contain bright elements of decor and some graphic structures,” says Kerrie Kelly. The biggest surprise of this project wasthe discovery of how easy it was to create horizontal stripes on the walls. The design team simply painted the wood planks and then nailed them to the surface. Such decorative wall decoration helps to expand the room, giving it a feeling of freedom and light. Creating a magnificent living space forthe family should not have cost fabulous money and demanded fantasy. The sofa from Room & Board, the chandelier from Crate & Barrel and the bar stools from Wholesale Interiors combine in this affordable and chic new look. These modern bookshelves were madefrom recycled wood and water pipes designed by Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. The open shelves allow the enclosed space to breathe and at the same time offer enough space for essentials. Kerrie Kelly says functional ideasof this garage were simple: “Eat, drink, play, enjoy.
