I’m on the board of Hudson’s school and they just started a big renovation. New floors just went over the weekend and I believe painting is up next! Two of the rooms in the space are classrooms and they were already designed before I came on board. The last room in the space is going to be transformed into a parent lounge. Each room has a theme and the this room will be the sea/water. There haven’t been any final decisions on this space so I got to do my thing and come up with a plan.
For the dining/desk area I thought a tulip style table would give an ample around of space for parents to sit and talk, have a coffee or bring their laptop and get a little work done while their child is in class. I would pair it with my nautical inspired yet modern chairs (to the trade) complete with metallic linen pillows. A trio of aerial water shots from Max Wanger add to the sea/water theme. To help differentiate this part of the room I wanted to do overhead lighting and liked this option.
The remaining part of the room is meant to be the lounging area of the space so I suggested this sofa that is traditional yet modern plus it’s the color of sand! Then to tie in the schools colors (orange/aqua) I wanted to add these accent pillows.
The room is on the small side, but we want additional seating in the lounge area. Instead of accent club chairs which have a large foot print try and go with an upholstered dining chair. I love this option. Great price and it comes in a bunch of different colors. This petite pedestal table would fit perfectly between the two chairs.
I’m working with a fellow board member on the space so she has also being coming up a plan as well. We shall see how we combine both of our design wants/styles in the space!
