Hanover Avenue Designs a Room for Dog Lovers

For today's room makeover, we’ve transformed a dog-loving family’s new living room into a gracious space for entertaining. In a large house that already has a family room and a playroom just for the kids, we thought it was about time the adults had their own elegant space to host friends – and after all, this loving couple deserves a pretty place to relax while the boys are occupied in the playroom. The wonderful family that lives here has a classic style rooted in Virginia tradition, so we stayed true to that while adding subtle, modern nods to keep the room feeling fresh and to reflect the wife’s bubbly and fun personality. Take a look at how we made it work!

Hanover Avenue Designs a Coastal Bedroom

Who has time to think about what goes into a bedroom when your days are spent raising little boys and saving lives at a hospital? When we got the opportunity to design our first ‘Room Makeover’, I did an emotional cartwheel (I can’t do a physical cartwheel) because who deserves a bedroom sanctuary more than a hardworking doctor and mother? We’re thrilled to be able to unveil this bedroom here today as a little present to a wonderful family!
