Architectural designer Matt Dougan used elements like vigas (wooden support beams) and latillas (slender strips of wood) on the ceiling of this living room to add authentic Southwestern charm. Old World rugs were combined with leather furnishings, while Southwestern-print furniture, a hand-carved cantera fireplace and an antler chandelier complete the look. A few subtle floral accessories implement a soft, feminine touch to the masculine space.
Gleaming Brazilian chestnut floors greet guests as they enter the front hall of HGTV Dream Home 2010. Tongue-and-groove pine ceiling, decorative beams inspired by traditional vigas and smoke bell lanterns complete the look.
