The living room of the newly renovated Childers home has been completely transformed. The original brick over the fireplace was revealed, original wood floors restored and shiplap walls are brought to life, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
To warm up this neutral kitchen, designers added light wood floors running throughout the space. Not only do these wood floors help to provide warmth to the space, they also help the exposed beams in the ceiling to visually connect the kitchen and living room spaces.
With the large, open plan of this room, designers wanted to make sure it felt like a home instead of an art gallery, so they added a berber rug to soften the space and tie together the furniture and the art.
A cozy living room sits just outside the open kitchen space in this renovated midcentury modern home. The L-shaped layout of the room creates a small bonus space that works well as a reading nook. An Eames recliner chair and vertical bookshelves make the space functional without taking up too much room.
To keep the living room warm and inviting, designers used pops of red throughout. Throws, pillows, an ottoman, cherry furniture-this bold color plays well off the neutral wall color and helps to add the family's vibrant personality to their space.
A built-in dining table and shelf makes the most of limited space in this modern combo living/dining area. Printed wallpaper adds a layer of texture that complements the safari style of the other furnishings in the room.
The homeowners love to entertain, so designers wanted to create a space that was functional for them. To do this, they made sure to keep the space feeling light and open by raising the arched doorway that separates the kitchen and living room space and removing the door that previously connected the rooms, creating a clear line of from the kitchen into the living room. They added a peninsula that provides seating, keeping the space functional, but they also included a small area to the left of the breakfast bar that acts as a sort of pass through, making food service between the rooms easy.
This small space living room is a couple of steps down from the kitchen. The sunken family room visually expands the space.The wall art and tall potted plants make the room look proportional, while a colorful mix of patterns in the upholstery and throw pillows provide balance to the small space.
