Reclaimed oak wood floors and beams give a warm and earthy tone to this Craftsman-style living room. The living room bears all the hallmarks of the renowned style, from the wood floors to the clean-lined furniture to the woodwork on the walls and natural light filling the space.
This stone fireplace is bordered by wood trim and accented with a floating mantel. The craftsman-style living room emphasizes artistic but functional design with a neutral color palette and natural materials.
Drawing strength from Frank Lloyd Write’s philosophy of organic architecture, every element of the 8,000-square-foot home was designed in relation to one another. From the Mission-style furniture to the exposed beams, the home is alive with Craftsman character.
From the foyer, the stairway leads to this second, casual family room with a bar area. Espresso-colored stain on the stair rails pairs nicely with the sage green walls for a cozy color palette. This space is a perfect retreat for kids while adults entertain downstairs in the formal living room.
Purple, gold, yellow and blue pair with rich velvet, metallic shine and lacquered high gloss to create a living room design that's as visually compelling as it is luxurious. A sunken niche in the center of the coffee table makes a clever wet bar.
The family wanted a unique space for outdoor entertaining, so designers created a space that would function as an extension of the home's interior. A wood paneled ceiling and dark, wicker furniture bring a warm contrast to the neutral space, while the space's high arches let in plenty of natural light. In order to control the natural light during the day and keep bugs out at night, heavy curtains were hung so that the homeowners would be able to control the atmosphere of their space. To help the space remain usable during cooler weather, a fireplace was added to give off warmth when needed.
An eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories juxtaposes against the traditional architecture of this Boston home. Teal barrel chairs flank the classic fireplace, and a trio of metallic gold tables are grouped together in the center of the room. Abstract art adds color to the space.
