The living room makeover includes a more modern slate tile for the fireplace and a cedar-beam mantle with TV mounted above. A comfy overstuffed sectional in pale blue and woven jute rug help bring beachy accents to the casually modern space.
As seen on Beach Flip, contestants Martha and Alex installed new wood beams in the ceiling to separate the living room from the dining area and added all new furniture, curtains and decor at the renovated Comfort Breeze condo.
“Our fireplace was painted white when we moved in, and we figured that was the only option,” says Katie. Redoing it, hearth to mantel, in the same terra-cotta shade as the accent wall opposite it pulls the room together. Cranking up the cozy: custom-size natural woven window shades by Graber and creamy white paint (Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore) on the other walls.
The new living room in the King home is open and spacious. Walls have been removed, creating a much more open feel. Shiplap has been put in and new wood floors have been installed, as seen on Fixer Upper.
A terra-cotta-color wall brings in warmth year-round. “The tone shifts over the course of the day, like a sunset,” says Katie. The oversize art from Four Hands Art Studio makes it even more glorious. For seating, the dated brown sectional that dominated the space got replaced with a chic blue wool-blend sofa by American Leather, a curvy armchair by Taylor King, and two leather slingback chairs from Wisteria. Friends at the couple’s giant potluck dinners spill into here, so the large coffee table by Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture comes in handy. The rug is by Jaipur Living.
