This rustic great room, with its gorgeous stone fireplace, is also full of clever conveniences. Along one side wall stretches a long countertop with built-in storage nooks that can be used as a desk or casual eating spot. A marble slab extends from the fireplace providing an extra tabletop or display space in warmer months.
Stainless steel appliances and bright white walls and cabinets reflect light from the window and recessed lighting, making this kitchen bright and cheery. Open shelving is tucked in an awkward spot beneath a sloped ceiling, as seen on HGTV's Cousins Undercover.
A cream cabinet just off the dining area offers extra space for storing extra plates and serving ware. The cabinets are topped with brown marble adding a small dark contrast against the light green walls.
The homeowners needed plenty of storage in their new addition, so designers took the opportunity to put storage wherever possible. The created an arched TV niche for a visual anchor point to the space, but it also has a storage closet behind it. On either side of the TV niche, nook areas took double duty-the right nook serves as an eating nook and game table, while the left nook is a craft table and a wet bar.
