Designer Susan Brunstrum elevated the row of windows of this great room with white tufted cornices that were placed alongside floor-to ceiling draperies for a stylish but subtle design. The treatments seem to elongate the dimensions of the windows and create texture against the clear glass.
This hall features a curved balcony area and iron railing that allow people passing through a glimpse at the rustic great room. A circular red floral area rug adds a pop of color, while the vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting keep the space open.
This gorgeous great room has a Mediterranean countenance thanks to the exposed beams and a heavy, ornate door. Paired with stark white walls and chic furnishings, the design is Spanish modern with a twist.
Entertaining is easy in this elongated great room that combines kitchen, dining and lounging areas in a modern way. With emphasis placed on acoustics, this home is also soundproof and thickly insulted to keep the noise contained.
A soft neutral palette creates a contemporary setting for this two-story great room. The floating steel staircase leads up to a catwalk, which overlooks the living space and views through the wall of windows.
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.
White pendant lights in a mix of shapes create an eye-catching focal point above the dining table. Sliding glass doors all along the far wall open up the space to the pool and adjacent patio. Architecture by Jasmit Rangr.
A charcoal-painted pillar easily catches the eye in this open living space, accentuating the room's tall ceilings. A custom console table connects to the piece and gives the owners another drop-zone for mail and keys.
Tropical resort-style furnishings blur the line between indoors and out in the HGTV Dream Home 2013 great room. A cozy club chair with a handwoven rattan frame is dressed in apple-green upholstery, a subtle nod to the glorious palette of marsh colors just steps from the room's French doors. The upholstered beige bench features a unique metallic fruit bowl and adds interest to the neutral space.
This contemporary sitting area pairs together sleek furniture with a Southwestern vibe, as seen in the desert-toned sofas and turquoise and animal-print throw pillows. Large windows covering an entire wall give room to a stunning mountain view, as well as an outdoor patio area.
Susan Brunstrum paired dark woodwork and floors with her cream and blue color palette for a stunning effect. The soft colors on the interior walls allow the wall of windows, framed in this darker wood, to take prominence in the room. Sofas were upholstered in cream on which the designer placed dark blue patterned pillows as accents.
