Since Mother Nature has provided the artwork, the interior has been fitted with an abundance of wide, floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. Reclaimed wood, vaulted beamed and trussed ceilings and fine stonework highlight the superior architecture and construction.
Hand-hewn wood trusses add a rustic note to this relaxing coastal bedroom. French doors open to a deck with expansive views of the Puget Sound, while a neutral color scheme keeps the room feeling spacious and calm.
Unpainted wood trusses and metal beams and braces give this vaulted ceiling a rustic but clean look. The roof's construction is a design feature in itself, with bolts fastened in a checkerboard pattern that attracts the eye.
Vaulted ceilings with wood trusses create a grand kitchen area complete with stainless steel range hood. Charcoal-colored cabinetry and white quartz countertops ad contrast to the light wood finish. A large eat-in island provides extra storage space for entertaining.
The upstairs sleeping space is arranged to showcase the building's beautiful bow ceiling truss. The area behind the truss was painted in a blue ombre to give the illusion of floating in the sky. While the original building housed a cabinet shop and architectural firm, current guests love feeling like they're on top of the world- especially the 4-legged variety!
Carved wood rails provide a grand entry to this rustic and warm living room in a luxury Colorado ski chalet. The trussed and beamed ceiling frames the spectacular mountain views. Stone walls add coziness and warmth.
The great room in the HGTV Dream Home 2012 is a sea of calming blue and serene cream complemented by interior stone cladding around the fireplace. The ceiling features mortise-and-tenon timber trusses and the room is completed with cottage-style furniture.
A warm and inviting luxurious master suite offers its own carved Canterra stone fireplace and a wall of massive windows, allowing for expansive mountain and desert views. The ceiling features wood beamed trusses, and the space is grounded by random wire brushed wide plank wood floors.
Mortis-and-tenon timber trusses, stabilized with stainless steel collar ties, visually lower the vaulted ceiling and transform an otherwise voluminous space into a cozy escape. As if aged and weathered by the elements, timbers, washed in a finish of water and gray paint, play up the room's invented farmhouse history.
The designers wanted an open floor plan, but also one in which different areas (dining, living and kitchen) would feel somewhat separated and unique. Single wood beams, instead of more traditional decorative trusses, were installed on the ceiling so as not to have anything competing with the arched window.
