Evelyn’s Double Take: Family Room Edition


Design and Event Editor Evelyn Eshun visited the Zilli Home showroom and designed two different looks using a neutral fabric sofa with clean lines.

The Family Room


THE GOAL: To create a family-friendly space without sacrificing style.

  • A CASUAL, CONTEMPORARY PAINTING adds pattern and colour to the space.
  • THIS DISTRESSED WOOD SIDE TABLE with detailed fretwork has an area for added storage or display.
  • AN UPHOLSTERED OTTOMAN with tufts is used in place of a coffee table. It is perfect for additional seating.
  • THIS AREA RUG is casual, soft and timeless. It is the perfect addition underfoot to make this space comfortable and cosy.
  • PILLOWS add glamour and texture to the clean lines of the sofa.
  • EXOTIC AND UNIQUE ACCESSORIES bring interest to the space.
  • A STYLISH THROW adds a glamorous touch.
  • BLANKETS look great and can be used when taking a nap on the sofa.

The Formal Room


THE GOAL: To create a formal space ready to entertain guests.

  • BLACK is as perfect in interior design as it is in fashion. In this room, it adds an unexpected glamourous touch.
  • THE USE OF BRUSHED GOLD metal finishes to accent this look brings instant glamour and formality to the space.
  • AN ART DECO STYLE SIDEBOARD is used as a bar beside the sofa.
  • A SOPHISTICATED COCKTAIL TABLE made of wood and trimmed with brushed gold metal is a glamourous centre-piece in this space.
  • LAYERING A COWHIDE RUG over a monochromatic damask area rug makes a statement.
