Retro Redesign - Moroccan Family Room in Lone Mountain

There's such a low inventory at this point that this fixer upper in Lone Mountain is the only residence for sale in the entire neighborhood! At $799,000, it's a steal considering the location and walk score, but it obviously needs some serious TLC.

The front landscaping needs a haircut ... but there's some good bones there with the tile roof and arched front entrance.  Inside, it's a blank slate. The kitchen and baths look like they need to be gutted, but the floors look like they might be salvaged. The fireplace really spoke to me. Maybe it could use some decorative tiling?

With Spanish style exterior and the first spark of inspiration with tiling the fireplace, I decided to go whole hog and inject the entire space with some Moroccan flavor.  When I saw this colorful interpretation that relies heavily on wood tones as well, I thought it hit the mark. Christmas stockings optional of course. :)

These are some of the key pieces to incorporate into the room (outside of a good floor refinishing!). Just add a neutral sofa and you've got yourself an inviting haven while you wait out the kitchen remodel in the rest of the house.
