Interior Inspiration with Designer Brad Ramsey
This local designer finds a balance between form and function.

“It is rare to design a room that is simply just about the aesthetic design. More often than not, it is a dance between form and function. As a designer, I strive to imbue a space with balance, layers and character while providing a design that truly functions for my clients. In this instance, my lovely client Kelley presented me with the challenge of reviving her tired bonus room while making it cozy for her, her husband, three teenage boys, their beagle, and the numerous buddies that come over to hang out and watch football.
Her husband wanted an updated rustic feel, so we faced the old fireplace with stacked stone, added tongue-n-groove slats and beams to the drywall ceiling, and displayed a few of his hunting trophies. We reoriented the room by putting the TV over the mantel and adding a custom sectional with rolling hide ottomans for extra seating and comfort. In case that’s not enough seating, we cleverly hid four industrial stools underneath an 80-inch-long rustic console on the backside of the sectional. In the end, Kelley’s bonus room turned out to be gorgeous, inviting and is always full of family and friends.”
