This large open, living room is inviting and decorative while remaining spacious. The mirrored furniture design features midcentury modern chairs and light gray sofas surrounding a gold coffee table adding a shine to the center of the room. An open wall connects the indoor room to the outdoors stretching the room even farther.
Thanks to the sliding glass doors that lead out onto the patio and to the pool, this kitchen boasts lots of natural light. That light is complimented by the dark furniture in the dining area, including a large dining table that seats the family comfortably and the banquette seating at the back of the room. The contemporary design of the space keeps ornamentation to a minimum, but the family has chosen to add a geometric wall design that spruces up the space and adds a touch of flair to their otherwise neutral kitchen walls.
Struck by the mathematical intricacies required to design the home which played host to the 2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, designer Candace Barnes chose to incorporate geometric shapes throughout the grand entry and staircase. Pyramidal shapes are repeated in the hand-blown crystal chandelier, Myke Reilly painting, bronze and granite table and the nailheads trimming the stairwell carpet.
The connected living and dining rooms feature a cohesive look with light neutral tones and stylish transitional theme. A plush sofa and contemporary wooden coffee table sit over a neutral area rug in the living room. Upholstered chairs surround a circular table in the dining room.
Joanna Gaines drew on the home's distinctly mid-century design when selecting furnishings. The living room sofa, coffee table and chairs exhibit the sleek and simple geometry that typified furniture design in the late '50s and '60s.
Because so much of the living room is defined by neutral walls and furniture, designer Lauren Clement used patterned accents, like the floral armchair and throw pillows, to generate subtle visual interest. The shiplap walls achieve the same effect, bringing texture to the space as well.
The exposed wood beams white oak and coordinate visually with the new hardwood floors and furnishings in natural wood finish. The windows get new shutters, while the fireplace gets a new marble surround and hearth. The oversized coffee table with hand-turned legs is the handiwork of furniture designer and wood craftsman Clint Harp.
The large dining table was custom created by furniture designer Clint Harp. Hardwood floor and wood furniture compliments the country ranch style of the home. A dramatic chandelier features a beaded texture and pulls out the lighter tone of the table coloring. A light shade of blue on the walls adds subtle color without overpowering the room.
