Presently, we don't have a coffee table or ottoman in the living room. Due to space and little noggin constraints, we just decided to nix it for the time being. So if we were to play a game it would have to be on the floor which is not too comfy, at the dining room table, or at the breakfast bar between the dining room and kitchen.
I love the idea of a space that could multi-task to be a game area, reading area, and entertaining space. And part of the inspiration for the space below came from Cathy's client's sunroom that she posted about last week. I thought it would be heavenly to have a light-filled space with a cozy set-up that would be fun for the family to play games, or for Mom to read and drink her wine or coffee, or even just to hang with friends.
Here is my interpretation of a game room:
I know this doesn't scream game room, but it evolved into a vibrant space where family and friends could all enjoy. I like the idea of having four comfy chairs surround a table for playing games, conversing, or reading/hanging out. Much of the room would be windows so there would really only be one wall to display artwork or to have a sideboard for coffee, drinks, or snacks. You know refreshments are the other important aspect of game playing and there must be ample space to place the snacks and drinks, so I'd probably need to add in some side tables as well.
