A large kitchen island divides this renovated home's open living space and provides a clean-lined surface for dining and food prep. The design team removed downstairs walls to create an open-concept kitchen, dining and living area, exposing wood ceiling beams and adding unusual materials to create a space that blends rustic, industrial and modern elements.
Two lantern pendant lights hang between exposed wood beams in the ceiling. Below the lights a small kitchen island creates a cozy eat-in space with two leather seat wood chairs. Forrest green countertops add a pleasing deep color against the yellow walls and built in white cabinetry.
Natural light and white walls and ceiling create a gorgeously bright environment in this stylish living room. Exposed beams add depth to the sleek modern look of the navy blue sofa, thin white coffee table and clear plastic blue chairs. Gray floor tile keeps the light feel and creates a cohesive look between all of the rooms connected in this open floor plan.
Who says modern style can't be nuanced, comfortable and bright? This living room is livened up with wood plank ceilings painted white, contrasting exposed beams, a rich wood mantel and varying pattern upholstered chairs. The fireplace is the highlight of the space, sitting off-center in a classy limestone surround.
Light stone and dark wood finishes combine for dramatic effect in this Spanish-inspired living room. A stone fireplace extends to the cathedral-height ceiling to create a dynamic focal point. The scale of the room, coupled with elements like dark ceiling beams, round candelabra fixtures and interior balconies, gives the space the feel of a modern-day Medieval great hall.
Take a cue from the lighting in this coastal kitchen, which combines sleek style with weathered ceiling beams reminiscent of driftwood from the sea. The glass-domed shade on these pendants strikes a fine balance between those modern and rustic elements in this home in Florida’s Alys Beach community. You’ll find similar pendants priced between $125-$200 at lighting and home decor retailers.
In this brilliantly lit sunroom, a large dining table is centrally located instead of typical sunroom furniture. A multitude of windows and a rustic brick floor gives the dining room an alfresco vibe, bringing the outdoors in. Exposed ceiling beams complement the neutral room's woodwork and moldings.
Wood details pop against the stark white background of this kitchen design. Exposed beams above compliment the hardwood floor for a cohesive feel to the room. Wicker chairs with white backs and seats are lined at the large island for an eat-in space. Marble countertop adds a polished glow to the finish. A white brick wall brings subtle texture to the room as an understated accent wall.
Wood framed windows cast bright sunlight into this connected kitchen and dining space. Hardwood flooring and exposed beams create a cohesive design of wood detailing throughout the room. Patterned seat cushions and a throw rug below the kitchen sink add calm color accents to the design.
White beams create a decorate ceiling over this stylish dining room. Open floor space surrounding the dining set up gives a spacious feel to the room accented by the sliding glass doors opening out to the expansive outdoor view. One side of the wood table is fixed with bench seating while upholstered gray chairs cover the remaining sides.
Inspired by the horse painting on the wall, this rustic living room keeps it light and airy. The light-colored couch adds plenty of seating and, along with the handmade shag rug, anchors the room. An antler chandelier adds another rustic touch that complements the exposed ceiling beams. A stone wall around the fireplace adds texture against the surrounding white walls.
Wooden ceiling beams and handmade copper lanterns break up the concrete facade in the al fresco living spaces. One-of-a-kind pieces, such as tree trunk bases, avoid the matchy-matchy look and add unexpected elements. Floor inlays of grey shell stone add texture and ground the furniture.
Wood sheathes the walls and floors of this rustic sitting area and library, while wood beams criss-cross the ceiling, mimicking the wattle-and-daub lines of classic Tudor construction. Bright fabrics and warm lighting give life to the space, and a bay window brings in natural light.
