Chic Gray Theater

Custom gray fabric panels cover the walls, enhancing the style and sound quality of the room. Designer Kari Whitman ordered the fabric from Italy for the walls, but when it arrived, the seams didn't line up. She installed thin smoky mirrors between the panels to solve the problem and add instant glam.

Ritzy Lighting

Whitman chose a mixture of sphere-shaped pendants to add ambient lighting to the theater.

Entertaining Made Easy

Cabinetry at the back of the theater room provides hidden storage, as well as a countertop for laying out food while entertaining. Whitman also included a table and chairs as a dining spot and extra seating.

Relaxed Seating

Each cozy seat has a side table or arm rest to use for drinks and snacks while watching the movie.
