With black trim around the windows and a chic faux-fur chair, this corner of the room feels stylish yet comfortable. A houseplant offers some shade from the morning light, allowing for easy reading, and accentuates the room's tall ceilings.
Young newlyweds were looking to transform their home into a chic, sophisticated space for both relaxation and entertaining friends and family. Designer Heather Garrett and her team's approach was to utilize materials that were both luxe and livable, taking into consideration pets and a baby on the way.
The renovations were all about creating spaces for entertaining. The compartmentalized main living spaces were opened up with the help of a structural engineer. A bearing wall and two outdated columns were replaced by steel beams that fit into the ceiling system above, and the structural work continued all the way down to the footers in the basement. Garrett and her team worked decorative moulding around the new ceiling beams to make it appear as if they were always part of the home.
A mix of antiques and imported gems from around the world brings a sense of modern eclecticism to this living room. A tremendously high ceiling boasts a distressed look that matches the fireplace surround.
A shiplap finish covers the chimney interior and wall to add texture and a subtle accent wall to the room. The tall ceiling makes the spacious room even more expansive and airy. A colorful canvas above the fireplace adds bold color to the neutral tones of the room. Soft green sofas and cushioned wood rocking chairs provide cozy seating around a square wood coffee table.
This gorgeous dome ceiling has a lighthouse-like feel. Circular windows fill the cubbies as the shape moves in to meet at a pinnacle. White molding, a soft yellow wall color and the natural lighting create a bright look. The bronze chain chandelier stands out against the light background.
Intricate wood beams frame the natural beauty of this traditional living room. A patterned chair with matching ottoman and neutral sofa supply comfortable seating beneath the trumpet chandelier. While the timber frames take center stage in this particular space, it is the natural stone fireplace and the seamlessness nature between the interior and exterior spaces that make the lasting impression.
Gorgeous warm wood ceiling beams create a decorative cover over the spacious design of this living room. Brown seat cushions on the traditional style chairs match the brown hue of the large sectional looking toward the scenic view visible through uncovered windows. A large fireplace surround is topped with a large mantel piece adding texture to the space.
A tufted bench and patterned rug add texture to the sleek and stylish finishes in this bedroom. White sliding barn-style doors pop against the gray walls. The tall white headboard, gray and white bed linens and gray bench continue the calm color pairing through the room. A two-blade ceiling fan highlights the modern influence of the design.
Dark gray/blue walls create a deep background for the bright red accent pieces in this bedroom design. The high, white ceiling balances the bold color blocking. Red bed linens, a red armchair and a blue rug with white stars bring a patriotic feel to the design.
