With soaring ceilings, unexpected bursts of bright colors and soft, cozy textures, the living room of HGTV Dream Home 2014 blends everything there is to love about modern mountain living. Steel collar ties support the weight of the roof and, paired with glue-laminated wood beams, offer a striking visual element.
Throughout the house, the designers manipulated size, materials, surfaces and textures to achieve a balance that would fit with the natural setting. The use of native stone and timber maintained a connection with the surroundings and emphasized locally-sourced materials.

High vaulted ceilings in natural wood tones give this traditional farmhouse living room a grand, open feel. Built-ins provide plenty of storage, a leather and fabric sofa provides comfy seating, and the French doors lead to the nearby screened porch.
