Rustic Chic Living Room With Natural Wood Paneling and Exposed Fireplace
By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, Chip Gaines found the original fireplace and decided to keep it as a unique design element. Original shiplap paneling was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood cornices were installed around the windows. A large, Art Deco style light fixture illuminates the room, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
