This contemporary gray family room keeps things simple, allowing the wooden ceiling to act as a focal point. An open layout permits easy traffic flow, and drama is introduced through three abstract paintings above the sofa.
A modern ceiling fan made of bronze and darkly stained wood was chosen to keep the family room cool in the summer. In addition to its practical purposes, the brown coloring of the fan also helps tie together many of the brown tones seen in the room’s furnishings.
This eat-in kitchen features neutral cabinets paired with gray marble countertops and a green kitchen island. Brown mosaic tiles create a backsplash, while wooden ceiling fans hang from a coffered ceiling. A breakfast nook allows room for casual dining.
Ceiling fans on a paneled ceiling can be functional and complete the look of a screened-in porch. For this fireside porch, Atlanta Decking and Fence also added extra details such as recessed lighting, curtains and molding.
The decking is left natural, while the rafters are stained to match the doors and windows of the house. Contrasts such as this are repeated throughout the Longs’ design. The architects opted for a simple ceiling fan without a light kit, hanging string lights along the perimeter for soft illumination at night.
Wicker and teak outdoor furniture provide stylish, comfortable seating to relax underneath the fan and look out over the pool. Dark-stained wood planks cover the ceiling for a cozy, rustic look. Outdoor curtains make the space feel like an extension of the adjoining living room.
Light beige paint and white wall paneling create a soft background for the country wood furniture. White bed linens and curtains keep with the calm, neutral feel of the room while royal blue bed covers add a touch of accent color to the room.
Large windows allow natural light to illuminate this home office, showing off the wall-to-wall built in desk and natural wood floors. A sitting area features a teal velvet sofa and metal coffee table, while a wooden ceiling fan is positioned above.
This spectacular backyard boasts a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen with stone counters and a long, neutral dining table that makes it ideal for entertaining. Greenery surrounds the perimeter of the space and ivy hangs from a contemporary metal pergola that supports wood ceiling fans and a paper lantern, which offers a soft glow above the dining table.
The calm neutral color palette used in this transitional bedroom creates a serene retreat perfect for relaxation. The symmetrical nightstands accentuate the clean lines of the symmetrical tray ceiling. The dark wood of the nightstands ties in the dark ceiling fan, making this space fluent and cohesive.
This contemporary farmhouse bedroom features white shiplap walls leading up to a vaulted exposed-beam ceiling. The room also features a three-blade ceiling fan, wide-plank wood flooring and a woven rug.
This living room features several large windows for natural light and a great view, and it includes exposed wooden ceiling beams, two ceiling fans, a pair of traditional armchairs and an ornate coffee table.
Dark built-in bookshelves store the family's books and personal treasures in this living area. The dark wood carries through to the coffered ceiling, adding richness to the design. Recessed lighting and a ceiling fan provide enough light to keep the space from appearing too dark and drab.
