Basement Entertainment Room
Del Weale and Samantha Farjo designed this light-filled rec room to appeal to adults and children alike.
Light Palette The walls were painted a creamy grey to keep the room airy and bright. "Psychologically, it doesn't feel like a basement," say Weale and Farjo.
Copper Fireplace The team focused on using eco-friendly elements. The fireplace, made from low-maintenance recyclable local copper, adds warmth to the space.
Wood Floor Due to extensive damage, the original wood floor was replaced with white oak finished with a natural wax.
Recycled Furniture A credenza was made from recycled letterpress trays and the base for the custom games table is reclaimed barn board. The leather armchairs were vintage finds.
