The kitchen, living room and dining room mesh together well while all having their own space in this lovely open concept design. A blue shelving unit framing the sofa adds bright color to the neutral walls and hardwood floors. Striped throw pillows add pizzazz, while a simple dining set lends understated style.
The wall dividing the living and dining rooms is opened up with a wide archway for a more open feel. The distinctive patterned ceiling tiles were retained but new recessed lighting and fixtures were added.
Chip and Joanna expanded this kitchen entryway by cutting a wide archway, making both the kitchen and the dining room feel larger. Twin modern-industrial style chandeliers illuminate the kitchen island and dining table, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines combined a formerly separated and cramped kitchen and dining room into a living space with lots of breathing room by cutting a wide archway. Rustic details like the shiplap wood trim on the range hood and dining room wall and open shelving are balanced by the white subway tile backsplash and quartzite countertops.
A wide covered porch with lighting and comfortable furnitures gives this home an outdoor retreat that's usable all day and into the night. The daybed features a movable acrylic panel that can be used to prop up pillows in lots of different configurations.
The elegant kitchen evokes Old World charm with a stacked stone wall, creamy traditional cabinets and diamond-laid tile flooring. A pair of wingback chairs make for a cozy seating area next to the wood-burning fireplace, while a wide arch opens the kitchen up to the living areas.
A wide front door opens to a soft gray entryway accented by a colorful rug and matching tufted benches upholstered in a soft rose hue. Archways and traditional moldings carry throughout the space, adding architectural interest and traditional flair.
