White furniture and a rug keep the stone wall of this grand living room from feeling too imposing. The color also reflects the sunlight streaming in from the tall arched windows, further brightening the space.
Floor-to-ceiling arched windows not only provide beautiful views of the natural surroundings, but also pour in tons of natural light into the rustic, expansive living room. A stacked stone fireplace centers the room, which features comfortable leather furniture.
Big open windows lets in tons of natural light in a gray, modern living room. A black accent wall with black-and-white photographs make a bold statement. Neutral furniture keeps the space feeling light and fresh.
A symmetrical furniture arrangement and neutral color palette give this transitional living room a simple, clean feel. To block the afternoon sun and keep a glare off the TV, black pull-down screens were installed above each window.

This two-story home features two porches. The lower one has an outdoor seating area with wicker furniture and a candle chandelier. The balcony offers additional outdoor seating, accessible from the home via sliding doors.
Susan Brunstrum designed her client's second home in Park City, Utah employing a "Mountain Modern," theme, which contemporizes the natural look of rustic furnishings for today's lifestyle. For this great room, the designer added contemporary furniture to contrast with the more primitive resonance of the stone fireplace and dark woodwork. The color palette of the room is soft and subdued, which plays nicely against the room's more masculine elements.
The stone wall warms this dining area and ties in with the traditional feel of the adjoining kitchen. A small white dining table compliments the custom kitchen cabinets. Dainty seat cushions on curved chairs match the wallpaper and chandelier.
