Create Upscale Living with Interior Designer, Kyle Schuneman!

When decorating a living room you can never go wrong with a neutral palette but the key to a successful design is how you put it together.  In this room, since all the furniture was calm I wanted to splash some excitement on the walls with a sophisticated and rich green.  Now, sometimes people get scared to paint their walls but I think what makes neutral rooms work is that tension.  And also keep in mind when you’re painting, that curtains, artwork and furniture  will break up that color.

Where to Start

I always think of the floors as my fifth wall so I went with the really bold Torrey rug that has an earthy color palette.  It’s the star of the room and then everything is built around it.  The Stratus sectional is the perfect complement to it because it’s big and inviting but doesn’t fight it’s pattern.

As you probably know by now I love mixing materials so I went with a metal and glass coffee table to be able to see the pattern of the rug and then chose a wood and stone credenza to round out the layers. That mixing of textures starts to tell the story of your room and makes boring neutral turn into classic and rich.  The Cordova chair is a great pop of color to pull out of the rug. Yes, grey is a color!

How to Accessorize

Throw in some great accessories and you have a well-worn room that will be the backdrop for many family memories to come. And that’s the key to design – creating your family’s backdrop and story, so take the time to build the space that you want to envelope you for years!

Bring Farmhouse To Your Dining Room with Interior Designer, Kyle Schuneman!

For me, the key to any successful room is layering.  To achieve a farmhouse feel you want to add the right amount of different textures to get that eclectic yet relaxed vibe.  Mixing wood tones with metals and linens is a great recipe to get there.

Where to Start

For this room design, I started with…what else? The dining table! It’s the star of any dining room and should anchor the space so this large Cordova table feels substantial and interesting enough to hold the attention of the other pieces.  Next, it’s all about accessorizing with the chairs. For a Farmhouse feel I like mixing host chairs with side chairs. I chose large linen host chairs mixed with the industrial Davie side chairs to give a nice balance. Sit it all on top of an always classic jute rug and you’ve got the center of your room ready to go.

How to Accessorize

I like to then accessorize the walls around the main event.  A great sideboard like the Lakewood gives a beautiful surface for family treasures and hanging multiple mirrors above creates a dramatic feature wall. Mixing different wood tones starts to tell a story in a space without making it feel like it was all just bought off the showroom floor.  

Lastly, and most importantly it’s time to add LIFE.  Fresh mixed flowers reflect that farm to table feel and a large potted plant in the corner like a black Olive tree spread the freshness around the room.  Pale oak creamy painted walls are a warm backdrop to the mix and match feel of the whole room without competing or adding a distraction.

Bike MS: MS 150 Ride 2020

Bike MS (Multiple Sclerosis) is the fundraising cycling series of the National MS Society and raises more money than any other cycling event for any other cause. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, and donors have raised more than $1.3 billion to stop MS in its tracks, restore what’s been lost, and end MS forever. The MS 150 Ride (Multiple Sclerosis) looked a little different this year than it has in years past. Brad Cofoid, team Capitan of the RoomPlace Riders MS150 team, had no intention of throwing in the towel when the pandemic caused the event to go virtual. Brad and his team of twelve (five of the riders have affiliation to The RoomPlace including; Ramon Ortiz, Durwin Arnold and Chadi Chahada) were determined to still do their part while keeping everyone safe.

Before the pandemic, the RoomPlace Riders planned for this year to be the team’s biggest year yet! Brad had been considering scaling back the team since this was his twentieth year participating in MS150. While this wasn’t the way Brad and the RoomPlace Riders envisioned their ride going, they found a way to make the best of it. In order to adjust to the unprecedent times, they decided to keep their group small while still completing their goal of biking 153 miles. Brad and his long time teammate Dave, personally mapped out the route they would ride on Saturday June 27th and Sunday June 28th – 100 miles on Saturday and 53 more miles on Sunday! 

Although it was clear that fundraising would likely be down all across the board, The RoomPlace Riders, like many others, was not going to allow the pandemic to stop the fight for Multiple Sclerosis. They have already raised close to $20,000 this year! This cause touches close to home for Brad as he rides for his sister and the nearly half a million people nationwide who are afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis. The RoomPlace is very honored to sponsor the RoomPlace Riders as they continue to ride and fight for a cure! Thank you to ALL who donate and/or participate in MS150. Your efforts do not go unnoticed!
