Paneled walls add structure, dimension and a bit of modern panache to the living room of this charming New York farmhouse. During the historic home's full-scale renovation, the design team raised ceiling heights, opened up the floor plan and updated the house with a contemporary color palette and modern furnishings, like the sofa and chairs in this comfortable, livable space.
Gray Farmhouse Living Room with Modern Furniture, Art
A gray paneled accent wall lends dimension to this Bedford, New York, living room, drawing the eye to the chic black and white artwork above the sleek fireplace. A full-scale renovation opened up this once-dark farmhouse, lifting ceiling heights and transforming the space into a livable, comfortable family home. Modern furnishings blend effortlessly with period architectural details.
Natural light pours through this chic, modern living room thanks to the full length windows and sliding glass doors. Modern furnishings are grounded by a cheery yellow patterned rug, and a floor lamp stretches over the space to provide a nice reading light. A stunning marble fireplace surround and hardwood flooring completes the sophisticated design.
Gorgeous Open-Plan Family Room From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a cinder block wall was removed to create this open and bright basement entertainment area. Sarah highlighted the home's original gray stone fireplace with rustic-modern furnishings in chic blues, grays and rich cherry browns. Plenty of seating and storage allow this room to be used for movie nights, casual dinners or sleepovers for the clients' two young boys.
Architectural firm Specht Harpman's goal with this modern redesign was to preserve all of the site’s large live oaks while creating a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.
