Various textures and coastal tones add beauty and interest to this open family room. Shades of tan, brown, blue and white and artwork inspired by the beach and ocean give the space a calm feel, providing a great place to relax and unwind.
This fun, warm family room also works as a great room as it shares an open space with the kitchen and dining area. The designer felt the room needed to honor that openness and connect the spaces while retaining its own identity. For the reason, having a low-profile sofa with an adjustable back that lifts up or sets down delineates the family room without being a barrier.
The HGTV Dream Home 2015 great room is a light, open space with a classic neutral color palette. “The great room structure is that new modern way of living, which would not have happened in New England,” explains interior designer Linda Woodrum. “There would have been small, dark, boxy rooms, but we all know that we are living in this new way where there is this wonderful open space.”
