A soft and soothing living space with a cozy sectional manages to separate the open kitchen and living room in this home, without creating too much division. Complementary tans and gray-blues subtly tie together the two spaces.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, with the help of interior designer Jorge Da Rosa, the home owner's created an open, functional kitchen-to-living-room space perfect for entertaining. Warm-toned brown walls and medium-dark hardwood floors contrast with the crisp white ceiling and grey and white kitchen cabinets. Occasional splashes of color, like the green tiled backsplash and the yellow inside the cabinets add contrast and visual interest.
Exposed ceiling beams bring a rustic quality to this contemporary Parisian apartment. The open floor plan connects the kitchen, dining room and living room, while white walls keep the space light and airy. A long dining table has seating for eight.
The open floor plan is perfect for families and entertaining. Traditional white cabinets pair with a gray kitchen island, which mimics the color scheme in the living room furniture. The cozy breakfast area features a round table with pretty blue chairs.
A large center island creates an instant gathering spot for the whole family. The open floor plan kitchen used two colors to divide the space visually. All-white cabinets, countertops and a subway tile backsplash are used in the prep and dish-washing area, while dark gray cabinets, countertops and a granite backsplash make up the cooking area.
On the other side of the sofas, a long table with several barstools creates a formal dining space. The dark wood of this vignette perfectly complements the accent wall, which becomes a focal point for the open layout.
An oversized sectional is paired with comfortable armchairs and a trio of hexagon coffee tables to create a warm, inviting living space. Large pieces of artwork hang above the traditional fireplace, helping to bring the two-story space to scale with the rest of the furnishings.
This family-friendly kitchen opens up to the casual dining room. Slate tile flooring pairs perfectly with the dining room's hardwood floors, while a large kitchen island provides extra counter space and storage. Earth tones are used throughout the space to create a warm, welcoming space.
Contestants Martha and Alex removed the existing pass thru wall and added additional seating by creating a new bar area between the kitchen and dining room on the first floor at the renovated Comfort Breeze condo.
