Modern meets traditional in this elegant dining room. A round stone table with brown leather chairs anchors the space while the abstract wall art, wrought-iron chandelier and oriental rug add texture and personality.
This living room was subdivided to create a bedroom, and a floating staircase was added to the newly extended second floor. The stair treads and landings were made from local reclaimed heart pine, and milled from 15" deep beams. Designer Heather Garrett custom mixed the stain so it would match original flooring.
For a family who likes color, this living room certainly delivers. The blue trellis wallpaper in the living room helps define the space within an open floor plan. A purple velvet sofa gets a bright mix of colorful pillows.
Steel gray paint and traditional woodwork sets a serious tone in this study, but its use as a whimsical space for collections makes the room a real conversation piece. From a crumbling Classical sculpture to a mod metal shark mounted above the fireplace, the room is packed with interesting decor and collectibles.
