Katie is an alumni of the Arkansas Alpha Pi Beta Phi sorority and was so excited to have the opportunity to give the girls' rec room a complete overhaul.  The house will be torn down in a year to make way for a gorgeous, larger and more efficiently designed house but the existing girls deserved to enjoy an updated space since this room was one of the most outdated rooms in the house.  Here are the i-phone before pics:  

And this is what happened:

This is more a casual room where the girls relax so Katie had more freedom with color and designing a youthful but sophisticated space they could be proud of.  

Katie's inspiration was Dwell Studio's Ming Dragon fabric.  All pillows are custom from Fabric Gallery.  The sofa is a custom from VanGuard.  The paintings were commissioned from Amanda Kella ART (also an alum).  

Katie came across a coffee table book with these abstract angels and frame them in our favorite Ikea frames.  Chippendale style chairs found at Lighting Emporium.  

The girls also use this room to display the trophies and awards this chapter has earned.  Katie had to find a way to organize them in an attractive way so custom cubes and shelving were designed and installed.   

Katie's carpenter also installed the custom magnetic board in the little conference area.  A tulip table allows more flexibility in seating and shows off the green hide.  Chairs were existing but reupholstered. 

Custom curtains by Fabric Gallery.

Vintage ottomans found on Etsy and reupholstered and painted.  Side note; these are so heavy we could barely lift them!  

The coffee table is a very large 62"x62" custom piece painted with auto body paint for durability and a high gloss finish.  

The consoles are a custom piece inspired by some found at market.  Katie needed a larger size and a faster timeline so KGD's amazing carpenter made it happen!  

Rug is custom cut as well and can be purchased through KGD.  

The girls are so proud of this room and spend a good deal of time in here.  It serves a lot of functions and now represents the spirit of the group of Pi Phi's who call this home!
