Rustic stone and rough-hewn wood meets clean, contemporary lines in this Austin home inspired by Italian farmhouse design. In this bright and airy living room, candle chandeliers and ceiling beams contrast with a glass balcony railing and modern windows. Warm brown tones create an inviting dining and living area with large sliding glass doors.
The HGTV Smart Home 2014 living room and kitchen/dining combination uses a blue and white color scheme to unite the space. The rooms separate instinctively with the staircase and soffit in the center of the room. A large chandelier with six freestanding candles over the dining table is an unexpected but attractive room addition.
Comfortable, oversized plush armchair and sofa beckon for relaxation, reading and friendly conversation near the grand stone fireplace. Large, wood ceiling beams draw the eye to the warming fireplace centerpiece while a stunning rug adds to the space's elegant sophistication. Arched entryways keep the room feeling large and open the space between the dining room and kitchen.
A long, curved bar with a natural wood countertop creates tons of dining space while fitting with the flow of this great room. A large sofa sets a perimeter for the adjacent living area, which features a stone accent wall surrounding the fireplace and wall-mounted TV. A pair of wrought-iron chandeliers with candle lighting adds a decorative touch to the room.
This French country living room features a gray built-in bookshelf and natural wood plank ceiling with metallic track lighting. Christmas decor, like a pine wreath and garland, adds a festive touch, while a small dining table with a red tablecloth and striped metallic candles finishes off the look of the space.
A dining room and living room share a beautiful open plan design. An antique-inspired lantern above the dining table houses three white candles, while the star of the living room is the charming rustic coffee table over a red area rug.
The owners of this home dreamed of having an open concept space, but they didn't know how to make their dreams a reality. Enter Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gainses removed the walls that used to separate the common spaces of the home, opening up the heart of house. Then, they added cool features to make each space unique-a custom table for the dining room, a new fire place for the living room, double islands for the kitchen-creating the home of this family's dreams.
This dining room, designed by John Derian, features a rustic wood table with colorful dishware, vintage green metal chairs, candle sticks and a white floral centerpiece. Mismatched plates make for fun conversation starters at a large dinner party.
Repeating colors give your room a designer look. Add napkins and a few choice decor pieces, like a bowl, that match your dining area chairs. An aqua candle in the table luminary ties in with the decor in this new construction kitchen, and the contrasting yellow along the counter in the lemons and pasta creates balance.
A sun mirror is the center of the wall display over this long dining room buffet. The buffet features a distressed finish with rows of drawers for storage. Mounted plates decorate the remaining space over the furniture piece while the buffet top display includes table lamps, shaped shrubs and thick candle holders.
