A 1920s fireplace mantel is the true showpiece of this living room and features a custom-designed fire screen. Gold in the screen is echoed in the glass coffee table and accessories throughout the space.
The living room area of this expansive, contemporary great room includes a three-sided fireplace made of steel, glass and reclaimed wood that becomes its own art installation. The fireplace wall serves as a sleek backdrop for the flat-screen TV.
This area is part of an indoor/outdoor floor plan and connects to the home's interiors via sliding glass doors. Retractable screens are built into the lanai. When lowered, the screens not only protect the area from bugs, they deflect solar glare and can hold up to 90 % of the homes conditioned or heated air in this outside space.
A two-story travertine fireplace draws you into this yellow living room. Adorned with a geometric screen and a large painting, the fireplace is flanked by glass shelves, accent lighting and glass-blown sculptures.
A streamlined wood fireplace with flat screen TV serves as the focal point for the sitting area. A glass coffee table allows the tropical blue hues throughout the space to stand out against the natural wood grain of the fireplace and hearth.
Between the two built-in shelving units that bookend the room lies a fireplace that has just gotten a facelift. Originally, the builder of the home had selected tile to encase the fireplace, but the designers decided to revamp the fixture. Now, the face of the fireplace is made from purple glass tile. The tile of the fireplace is accented by a white bronze fireplace screen which plays off of other bronze sculptures in the space.
The master bedroom features a see-through fireplace with a view into the master bath. A TV screen is hidden in the master bath mirror. The shower features a full-height glass window that overlooks the San Francisco Bay.
The design is full of exquisite amenities such as: a large pool and spa veneered with vibrant glass tile throughout, an elaborate sports bar with multiple plasma screens, full cooking and dining options, surround sound, agronomic heaters, cozy sunken fireplace room and a raised fire pit lounge with vast, open views.
This two-story great room includes two seating areas -- one oriented toward the flat-screen TV, the other positioned to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace -- and are delineated by matching chandeliers. Telescoping glass doors slide completely open to fully connect the room to the pool deck for easy indoor-outdoor living.
As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, Chip Wade and his team successfully combined the Overdyke family's screened in porch with their family room to create this giant, contemporary living room. By adding an all glass wall, Chip has been able to retain the natural light of the outdoors while adding modern luxuries such as the plush furniture and gas log fireplace.
