Black framed French doors and windows open up to the porch and pool area while also providing great views of the horizon. Rough-hewn ceiling beams and doorframes bring texture and rustic detail to this contemporary space.
Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines ultimately opted to keep the ceiling beams which, with the new bright white interior, tie in nicely with the newly added trim. The fresh motif and added light make the room feel much larger.
The former eyesore that was the fireplace is skinned with stucco and painted white, simplifying the lines and overall look. A simple wood mantel was installed that ties in with new reclaimed-wood ceiling beams and a new wood floor.
Ornate ceiling beams painted white keep this blue contemporary living room from feeling too dark. A gallery wall of framed art and photography is a backdrop for a transitional couch, while a tripod spotlight adds height and character behind a navy blue chaise.
This warm and tranquil living room features wood ceiling beams, a framed fireplace and a circle of seating. Although elegant, the furnishings are inviting, using sumptuous textiles and curved shapes to evoke softness. An oval mirrored coffee table on a softly patterned rug centers the space.
This spacious kitchen is beautifully lit highlighting the neutral subway tile wall with three decorative stripes, large neutral island with brown leather barstools and attractive wood details from the exposed ceiling beams to the smooth hardwood flooring. The warm, timeless look is highlighted with a distressed range hood and a trio of iron pendant lights.
Soft grays mix with the natural wood tones in this rustic, yet modern cabin retreat. Integrated appliances and a modern island with a sleek waterfall edge bring a streamlined look to the space, while timbered walls and ceiling beams emphasize the home's natural setting and log cabin feel. Windows are strategically placed to allow the chef to enjoy the view while working at the cooking station or sink.
In this white transitional living room, touches like the exposed beams and sliding barn door are charmingly matched with this mountain home's rustic setting. Behind the barn door, graphic wallpaper is a fun reveal.
Pale walls team with a stately limestone fireplace to give this renovated great room a clean and airy, yet comfortable and homey feel. Wood beams on the ceiling and tall mullioned windows bring warmth to the space and tie in with the Tudor architectural elements on the exterior. A blue wingback chair creates a statement in the mostly neutral space.
A sofa draped in white blankets matches the bright white look of the walls and ceiling in this small and stylish living room. The black floor is a lovely, bold contrast. A striped runner follows the flow of the floor and aims toward a leaning ladder adorned with textiles. A gorgeous shell chandelier adds a unique detail, while plants add vibrant, natural color.
"I think the family room and kitchen are a great place for the family to relax and spend time together. It's very comfortable, and the materials are hard-wearing for the kids," says designer Angelica Henry.
