Show N' Tell – French Moderne Manor: Part VIII
Today we’re taking you into the basement of the French Moderne Manor. Yes, if you can believe it, this well-lit space is a basement! Each floor of this home really has it’s own purpose, and the basement is all about entertainment and fun. Whether it be the culinary masterpiece of a kitchen or the home theater that’s even more glamorous than old Hollywood, this basement has everything you need to entertain a crowd.
Perhaps some of the most modern details of this home present themselves in the basement…like this vintage modern console table behind a low-back chichester sectional in the lounge. We also incorporated a lot of modern art, which really sets the tone for this casual space.
Not every basement kitchen gets an 8 foot long iron range hood…but this one sure did! Our clients love to entertain and host family and friends regularly, so having a space where they could cook and entertain at once was important. Only steps away from the home theater, indoor gymnasium and racquetball court, kids playroom, and lounge… this kitchen is literally central to every party!
The keeping area overlooks the indoor gymnasium making it a great spot for adults to relax and keep an eye on the game below. Designed for relaxation and conversation, it could almost pass for a true gentlemen’s club!
The woodworking details in the home theater are UN-real. Inspired by old Hollywood art deco, the wall panels and columns were trimmed out in a stained oak. Counterbalanced by a modern and geometric wallpaper on the ceiling, this space is a real glam-slam. And let’s just say that the lighting really knows how to set the mood!
