To create an open feel between the dining room, living room and kitchen, French doors that separated the living room and dining room were removed and a pass through connecting the kitchen and dining room was added, making the spaces flow together. To encourage the flow, designers replaced outdated wallpaper with a warm beige color throughout the house.
A coffee table can make a statement in a room, such as this tufted beauty. When using an ottoman, designers suggest finding one with a thick enough top that can safety hold a tray with a vase or drinks when entertaining.
Transitional Living Room With Archway to Dining Room
A curved archway adds architectural interest to this beautiful living room, which features a mixture of traditional and contemporary furnishings. Espresso-stained wood armchairs upholstered in a blue-gray fine wool provide stylish yet cozy seating.
Let Mother Nature be your guide the next time you're setting the dining room table for guests. A large vase of tall, leafy branches, several floral arrangements in various sizes, colorful leaves as name-tag holders, plus apples and pumpkins combine for a gorgeous yet easy-to-achieve look for fall.
The warm, inviting kitchen opens up to a pretty blue dining room, creating an easy flow through the main areas of the home. Beautiful architectural details, like the structured columns and room dividers, add to the Craftsman feel of space.
The transitional living room opens to the loft's playroom. A tan sofa and blue-patterned ottoman anchor the seating area, while the muted blue rug adds warmth and texture to the room. Matching leather stools add extra seating while providing a visual transition between the living room and play area.
