Incorporating a living room, dining area and kitchen all together works well to open up a space and get rid of some walls. By eliminating the attic and raising the ceiling, the space is able to feel twice as large.
As seen on HGV's Love It or List It, the renovated living room has had the wall removed that used to cut it off from the rest of the house. Now, the living room flows comfortably into the rest of the house.
On a two-acre property in Glenco, Ill., a modern barn is built for year-round entertaining. A pitched roof, beams and skylights make for a stunning architectural display overhead in the open floor plan entertainment room. A low sectional and curvy chairs gather together for a chic conversation area, and around the perimeter of the room are fun recreations, like ping pong and foosball.
No piece of furniture in this open concept living room matches, but they all work together, creating an eclectic look. A teal, velvet chaise, black, leather couch, cowhide benches and fabric chairs provide various seating options and contrasting textures.
The new living room at the Pasquella home is filled with color and life. The walls that separated the kitchen from the dining room and living room are gone. The old carpet is replaced by wood floors. A new couch by CB2, and a new rug by Genevieve Gorder fill the center of the room that once had no furniture at all. Brightly colored flowers and pillows add that extra burst of color and contrast to bring the room to life, while large bay windows help to bring the space to life. As seen on HGTV's Kitchen Cousins.
The open living room right when you walk in instantly catches your eye, with a navy velvet demilune perfectly placed to do just that. The room was kept light and neutral and brought in color through furniture, pillows, rugs, and accent pieces.
Just off the kitchen, the dining room is anchored by a whitewashed dining table and roll back chairs. The crystal chandelier adds a hint of glamor, while the centerpieces tie in the signature lavender hue found throughout the design.
Soft gray walls and coffered ceiling create a cohesive design for this multi-functional space. Neutral furniture in elegant lines create a timeless feel to the rooms, while contemporary light fixture lend a modern note.
