In spite of its extremely tall trey ceiling, this family room feels warm and intimate, thanks to the warmth of the reclaimed barnwood used in the ceiling, beams, and moldings throughout. A massive stone-veneer fireplace with barnwood trim dominates one end of the room, and a wall of French doors provides not only light but also a splendid view of the surrounding landscape.
Contrast is king in this fireplace wall by Nathalie Tremblay of Atelier Cachet, post-renovation and re-design. Gone are the drab wall and white brick; in their place, a stone-veneer surround and black wall add plenty of drama, and a three-dimensional art piece adds the finishing touch.
By using matching or complementary veneer materials to that of the home on this courtyard fireplace feature, it allowed it to blend harmoniously. The Spanish Cotto Terra Cotta is used as the mantle and hearth, with the antique brick veneer surrounding the fireplace box and the base of the view-port openings. However, it was the plantings that provided the critical contrast in colors and offered a serene atmosphere to this outdoor 'room'.
Although simple in design, the wrought iron crossing over the wall openings matched the wrought iron on the Juliet balconies.
An impressive feature wall is clad in Norstone stone veneer, and frames an inviting hearth area. The rectangular cut-out fireplace features decorative glass orbs set against a reflective black stone, providing a nice contrast against the rough hewn, neutral-toned wall. Curvilinear, white, architectural lounge chairs complete the space and complement the rigid, linear elements.
Bluestone patio, a cedar roof structure, and all natural veneer and wall stone create an elegant, contemporary outdoor living and dining space with a rustic charm. A long light fixture compliments the long wooden dining table. Wood chairs with neutral seat cushions line the table and a trio of lanterns create a simple centerpiece decor.
A cedar pergola creates a shaded spot on the travertine patio and leads to a beautiful outdoor fireplace for gathering on cool nights. Travertine is also used around the spa, while an all-natural veneer and wall stone helps define the outdoor space.
The design is full of exquisite amenities such as: a large pool and spa veneered with vibrant glass tile throughout, an elaborate sports bar with multiple plasma screens, full cooking and dining options, surround sound, agronomic heaters, cozy sunken fireplace room and a raised fire pit lounge with vast, open views.
This pergola features an outdoor living area, kitchen and dining room that are tied together with natural earth tones with pops of color. The stone-veneer bar base has the look of natural stone without the high cost. A sleek fireplace in the middle of the bar adds an unexpected element.
This midcentury modern living room features a fireplace original to the home, walnut veneer paneling and walnut flooring. Vintage pieces, such as the white armchair and starburst mirror, are mixed in with more modern finds like the ivory faux shagreen side table, hair on hide rug and gold accent tables.
This gorgeous outdoor granite bar gives the bartender an amazing view of the tropical pool, waterfall, and cabana. Cameron flagstone invites you into the large cabana, featuring an Eldorado stone veneer and colored acid washed concrete. Visitors can sit and relax in front of the fireplace, watch TV, or watch bathers splash into the pool from the rope swing.
The homeowners wanted a multi-functional space that can be used for relaxing and entertaining. Large sliding doors open the living room up to the pavilion for a true indoor/outdoor element. An intimate exterior seating arrangement creates a cozy atmosphere to enjoy the outdoor fireplace. Inside, the veneered media wall offers display shelving while embracing and complementing the existing architecture.
