Designers added drama to this living room by opening up the wall on the landing of the second floor art gallery. This allows anyone standing on the landing to get a bird's eye view of the Boston Commons below this penthouse apartment as well as the goings on in the living room on the first floor.
A trio of pendant lights featuring mixed 3D shapes are layered at varying heights to fill the space of this two-story open staircase ceiling. Wire railing secures the space while keeping with the open feel of the design. Black metal balusters and hand railing fit the contemporary style with a touch of industrial influence.
High ceilings, an exposed stairwell and a wide open floor plan create a living area loaded with interesting architectural detail. White walls show off two modern paintings, stacked above the mantel to emphasize the room's height and add maximum drama. A deep blue velvet sofa shares the paintings' dominant hue, creating a color story that pulls the eye through the space.
Mirrored doors pull back to reveal this sweepingly grand living room featuring a double-height ceiling and crystal chandelier. Curtains cover the entire window facade when needed drawing the eye upward.
The double height ceiling in this beautiful sunroom features reclaimed wood beams and a whitewashed wood ceiling. The additional height in the room draws the eye upward, creating drama in the space, while LED lighting hidden in the beams project light up onto the wood ceiling for a warm, glowing feel.
A metallic paint treatment on the arched ceiling brings a touch of glam to the space, as well creating height. A pair of contemporary-meets-transitional chandeliers illuminate one of the islands that doubles as a dining spot. Warm hardwood floors ground the space.
Natural stone floors, white columns, barrel-vaulted coffered ceiling, a double vanity and oversized walk-in shower make provide the height of elegance in this luxurious master bathroom. Yellow accents help brighten the neutral tones.
The roomy island in this Austin kitchen teams with six counter-height chairs to double as a casual dining table. Cabinetry in both dark and light finishes creates contrast, a design element that's employed throughout the home. A mix of lighting finishes the space.
This bright and airy living room is a mix of comfort and style, with soft upholstered sofa, stills, ottoman coffee table, and arm chair, a traditional fireplace, double height window, and vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and rafters.
