Living Room: Family Time

Whether you are a tribe of 10, newlyweds, a young family, a growing family, or empty nesters; home is your haven and a special place to spend time. You may choose to spend that time quietly rejuvenating and refreshing, entertaining guests or spending quality time with children. Your Living Room needs to reflect what stage of life you are at and what you enjoy most.

Let’s take a walk through some Birdblack Design projects and point out the relevant features of our custom-designed homes, perfectly unique for each individual client and their needs.

Just opposite the Kitchen and Dining area is the Main Lounge Room. Complete with massive TV and fireplace, we know the family will grow up comfortably in this space. No need to mention the fabulous view, terrific for this very active young family.

Directly downstairs from the open plan living area (read: in perfect earshot of the parents), an entire living space dedicated to the young children is found. As you can see, plenty of good quality family time happens there, but this room also serves as a breakout zone for the kids when mum and dad are entertaining guests up above.

This is probably our favourite room at ‘Cato Residence’. Whether you like to read a magazine and have a cuppa in the afternoon; a wine and cheese night with the girls, or snuggle up with a nightcap in front of the fire; this space is marvellous for adults of all ages: newlyweds to empty nesters, and everything in between.

This custom library is delightful with LED task lighting: a brilliant place to store board games, devices, travelling ornaments and your favourite books.
Birdblack Design cannot stress enough the beauty of custom details whilst designing. Addressing our clients’ individual specifications means unique homes.

Here’s a question for you – over the mantelpiece, is that an artwork or a TV? Well, the answer is both! This Samsung ‘The Frame’ TV is functional for the family and also serves as a decorative piece when not in use. Another home with custom joinery – fabulously displays photos and family treasures.

Birdblack Design is proud of the perfect zoning in this home. A quiet evening by the fireplace – whether alone or with friends, a splendid way to rejuvenate.

Located in snowy Michigan, USA, you just know this room is mightily used. Large and enveloping sofa with a roaring fire – it’s easy to hibernate here for the winter!

If you have a larger immediate or extended family, a space like this is great for when all the family are over. Plenty of seating and plenty of floor space for babies and kiddies to play.
