the california family room

on 13 april we got a backstage tour of interior designer sheldon harte’s home. today we’re getting an exclusive peek of his take on the quintessential california family room. harte brownlee & associates created the fresh, modern family room for the 2009 philharmonic society house of design. with a dramatic furniture plan and an extensive texture palette, the room is chock full of faux shearling, textured tree bark, hair hide and suede. the mediterranean styled irvine home now has hottest family room in california.

i would once again like to thank chelsea sallee of tamar mashigian p.r. & marketing for submitting harte brownlee & associates’ transformations. the afters photos were shot by the talented mark lohman.


  1. Being away....... I missed a lot but it is good to see that you keep posting pleasing presentations of people's palaces...... and that, they are!

  2. I love this room. I love the colors and textures and I especially love the attention to details in the drapery treatments and accessories. And the sconces between the doors! Love them! I would love to know the source if possible.

  4. I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.
