Durable Materials in Stylish, Rustic-Chic Living Space
With five boys, the homeowners wanted to make sure their home was stylish, but could also stand up to the test of their large, rambunctious family, so designers were sure to include plenty of durable materials in all of the home's spaces. At the kitchen island, sturdy, metal barstools add seating at the breakfast bar. In the living room, a woven rug defines the space, while two sofas-one with an easily machine washable slipcover and the other crafted from a durable leather-add plenty of seating that is sure to meet the challenge of the homeowners and their boys.
The design in the living room was kept elegant and simple so as to complement the large space, rather than compete with it. Large sliding glass doors allow in plenty of natural light, while the bookshelves add elegant display spaces. To complement the light walls, designers created a custom patina to paint onto the floor rather than staining it.
Since the living room and kitchen share a space, designers wanted to be sure that the designs in the spaces complemented each other, so they ran exposed beams throughout the space to give the spaces a tavern feel, while the neutral colors blend with the natural materials to create a cozy, lakeside cottage.
To truly make their apartment space their own, these homeowners showcased the artwork and accessories they collected over their travels, such as the vintage Hmong pillows on the sofa and the gallery wall above it.
