To give an easy sense of flow and allow natural light to filter throughout the home, the doorways were left open on this lower level. An overhead fixture and sconces provide lighting without taking up floor space.
This kitchen is set up in the center of a large open concept living area. To help divide the space usefully, an L-shaped island acts as a mellow boundary and gives a place to sit and hang out while meals are being prepped.
This traditional, open plan great room with wide, arched doorways contrasts dark hardwoods with gray walls and gray and white upholstery to provide a light, airy feel. Highlights include a candelabra-style wrought iron chandelier, arched openings, and a neutral diamond-pattern area rug.
The kitchen has a folding door which opens to a wood patio leading into the small backyard. Another large, open wall connects to the bright green living room for a truly open feel. The island has a gray countertop that complements the wall color, and a perfectly fitted cutout houses the dog dishes.
