Mandy Moore’s Family Room Tour

I’m wrapping up the tours of our Moore Residence project today with the very last one in the family room. The space’s dreamy color palette is the sum of different hues that were woven throughout the house as if this one room ties the whole project together.

Just like the rest of the house, the family room was stripped down to its barest form in order to take it back to its mid-century roots, while simultaneously propelling it forward to the current century. The biggest project to tackle in this space was the fireplace wall which was part of the early 90’s renovation that was a disservice to the mid-century home. We removed the granite surround and curved lines from the fireplace and re-surfaced it using to make it more authentic to the time period.

From the beginning we knew we wanted to create a long floating bench/hearth that ran the entire length of the wall and , the architect, came up with the idea to make it a custom palladiana terrazzo bench, which is now easily the show piece of the room. She created a few mock-ups of the and from there we went marble tile shopping. Once we picked out our palette of marble tiles we went to work busting the pieces up and hand placed each of the aggregate pieces along the bench so we could get our ideal composition. It was so fun rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands a little dirty on the job site, even if I was about 8 months pregnant. From there the pros, came in and made all the magic happen.

was another important piece in the space, with its position floating in the most central space of the house, the back of the sofa needed to be visually considered just as much as the front. When I saw sofa and the detailing on the back cushions it was an easy sell. Not only are the leather straps and the wood accents stunning, but the sofa itself has a deep seat and soft upholstered arms and cushions which makes it perfect for curling up to watch TV. It really is that elusive winning combination of tailored and comfortable.

And finally, the coffee table… my coffee table! I have been working on developing my own line of furniture and “The Pentwater Round” which is seen here, as well as the “Pentwater Octagon” (which you may remember from the Christopher Kennedy Showhouse and my desert A-frame), are the very first pieces. did an incredible job bringing my design to life for this custom one for Mandy. With our move, and other changes in the studio, the table has yet to be released. If you’d like to inquire about a custom piece you can our studio through [email protected] .com or sign up for to be notified when it is available for purchase.

A view from the kitchen shows the flow between the two rooms.

Natural elements like stone, wood, leather and fur are accented with refined touches of brass and velvet to create a welcoming mix of masculine and feminine and a perfect example of the relaxed but edited aesthetic that I’m always looking to create.

Let’s take a quick trip back to see where we started…
