The deep wood color looks naturally beautiful while the books on top add some decoration and color to this contemporary entertainment center. The bowl of grass also complements the natural feel of the unfinished wood.
Black bookshelves contrast against the white brick fireplace and provide a display for the homeowners' books and accessories. The wall above the fireplace is painted a dark charcoal so that the flat-screen TV almost disappears and doesn't compete with the design of the space.
This contemporary home features clean lines and extensive details, a unique entertainment center, attractive focal points, great flows of volumes and spaces, and incorporates large areas of indoor/outdoor living.
Neutral tile floors carry throughout the open design of this entertainment room. Textured columns create a separation for the media area while still keeping the room open and cohesive. Mounted sconces brighten the columns, creating an inviting atmosphere.
