Designer Kerrie Kelly updated this living space with a club-like look using color, texture and modern furnishings. The sitting area, created with four matching accent chairs in yellow and a center coffee table in wood, invites family and guests to gather for good conversation or perhaps a night of games. The cool gray tones of the tray ceiling, industrial light fixtures and whitewashed brick add dimension and contrast against the sleek furnishings.
In this beautiful dining room, a peacefully neutral palette serves as a foundation on which to layer an eclectic mix of textures: exposed brick, felt pendant lights, whitewashed hardwood floors, gauzy curtains and an animal skin rug.
Whitewashed exposed wood beams give this living room a lofty, airy feel. Two sofas create the look of a sectional, but with more versatility. Floor poufs sit in front of the white brick fireplace to be used as extra seating or a foot rest.
Whitewashed cedar siding in a shiplap pattern wraps around the home, giving it a worn and weathered look that complements the coast. To distinguish the street-facing garage from the rest of the property, the architects outfitted the structure with white-painted brick.
Create an accent wall with an inexpensive finish, like this white brick veneer in a Naples, Fla., home, for a comfortable, casual living space, says Leigh Spicher, Ashton Woods' national director of design studios. You also can paint existing brick or whitewash it. Also, white, gauzy curtains can be found on a budget from most home retailers and fit into a coastal-inspired design.
This open and airy room features a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace in the same neutral, whitewashed tones that permeate the decor of the entire house. A wood plank ceiling runs the length of the space, adding architectural interest and setting the tone for the home's rustic-modern style.
A black ventless gas fireplace was made more dramatic with a whitewashed porcelain tile façade in a brick pattern that spans from the floor almost all the way to the ceiling for a clean and modern look. A flat-screen TV with art mode that allows viewing of beautiful works of art placed above the fireplace has a customizable walnut frame that adheres with magnets and helps the TV blend with the rest of the room's decor.
