Transitional Living Room With Built-In Entertainment Center
A built-in entertainment center houses a large flatscreen TV and provides tons of open and closed storage. The living room is grounded by a graphic area rug, while a comfortable sectional is the perfect place for the whole family to relax.
Prior to the renovation, the dining room was isolated from the kitchen and seldom used. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri removed a wall to unify the spaces and create this open and inviting dining area with a beautiful farmhouse table.
A vaulted exposed beam ceiling with wood planks and wrought iron chandeliers create a craftsman style look for this spacious living room. Two built-in wooden cabinets enclose the stone fireplace, while two sofas and a striped area rug add neutral touches to the space.
Open Floor Plan Mixes Natural and Contemporary Styles
Bright white walls, glass stair railing, recessed lights and sleek tile floors create a contemporary style in this open floor plan living space. Natural fibers, warm woods and a variety of houseplants bring an organic element to the space, giving it a lived-in, welcoming atmosphere.
