SPACES | The Family Room

Photographs by Anna Routh Photography

Ashley Shaw describes her aesthetic as “collected and colorful.” This family room was designed for a young family who recently settled in Charlotte after having lived all over the world. “They have an active lifestyle and wanted a home that could withstand two young children and a dog — while also feeling sophisticated enough to entertain their many friends,” Shaw says. The home was purchased from a local builder, giving the designer a blank slate to create this functional space with a soothing color palette. 

“I like mixing patterns and styles within a room. I feel it’s important for a room to have tension that is created by opposites, such as something gilded with something natural.”
