As seen on Home Town, the Guay Residence has been fully renovated by Ben and Erin Napier in Laurel, Mississippi. In the living room, the dark red paint has been updated to a warm gray color and the low ceiling has been removed and a new vaulted ceiling opens up the space.
This traditional black marble fireplace with white mantle was transformed for the holidays with accents of greenery, gold and silver metallic highlights, red pops of color, and vases filled with ornaments.
White walls and open arch doorways create a spacious and airy feel in this living room. Bright red armchairs and a blue shag rug add bold touches of color to the room. A contemporary neutral sofa creates a perimeter for the room and seating to watch the mounted TV on a natural wood accent wall. Floating shelves, an Asian coffee table and a wood mantle board add wood accents throughout the room.
This living room has warm yellow walls, built-in shelving, a cozy window seat with soft red fabric and a stone fireplace with wooden mantle. Wooden end tables are placed between the yellow furniture, arranged around a glass coffee table complete with candles.

Cuddle up and relax fireside. This Craftsman-style fireplace sets the standard for cozy with distressed brown frame with white quartz. Freshly picked flowers and vintage accents bring out that rustic charm on the mantle while the cozy red and white fabric covered bench does the rest.
Individual blossoms on the flower spike of gas plant appear to have eyelashes, thanks to long, curling stamens. Gas plant offers a long flower season, from late spring through midsummer, and you can find varieties with blooms in shades of lavender, pink and red. Once flowers fade, seedpods form that linger into early winter and make a nice addition to autumn arrangements. Site this perennial where you want it (full sun is best), because it doesn’t transplant easily. Small seedlings tend to form around the mother plant, and those can be moved with little fuss. Deer- and rabbit-resistant plants grow 28 to 32 inches tall by 18 to 24 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 3-7. Good vase companions for gas plant: bearded iris, peony, bee balm and lady’s mantle.
