Neutral colors and soft, metallic finishes contribute to this city apartment's airy, sophisticated feel. A custom bar with copper accents is a functional focal point. Structural columns delineate the "rooms," while an open floor plan allows the urban space to live large. A tray ceiling adds dimension and creates options for mixed recessed and cove lighting.
The main floor of this large residence is open concept with the living room, kitchen and dining areas flowing easily into one another. A neutral colored rug is a simple, tasteful match for the white-and-wood furniture.
Tropical resort-style furnishings blur the line between indoors and out in the HGTV Dream Home 2013 great room. A cozy club chair with a handwoven rattan frame is dressed in apple-green upholstery, a subtle nod to the glorious palette of marsh colors just steps from the room's French doors. The upholstered beige bench features a unique metallic fruit bowl and adds interest to the neutral space.
The lower floor of this home is open concept with the kitchen, dining area and living room flowing seamlessly together. Weathered wood floors connect the spaces and designer Leanne Ford has styled the home with her texturally rich, neutral palette.
In this transitional great room, neutral furniture pairs beautifully with bold blue and orange accents. The mixed patterns of the upholstered chair and rug draw attention to the center of the space, while their neutral tones contrast nicely with the dark wood flooring.
This impressive great room uses a mix of reclaimed wood elements and contemporary materials like chrome to create a look that's both rustic and modern. The exposed beams are made of 100-year old barnwood.
An open great room with lots of space for entertaining was important to this homeowner, so to tie the space together designer Carrie Maniaci focused on wood elements with stainless steel accents. The Italian Olive Ash dining table makes a perfect center piece and is like a work of art.
To create a warm, inviting great room, designers opened the space into other rooms in the home, making it easily accessible from several points of entry. Then, designers added a variety of textures in a warm color palette to create the space's comfortable, yet chic, appeal. To give the space a touch of glamor, bronzite metallic tiles were installed around the fireplace to give the appearance of metal cladding without adding the cost, putting the finishing touches on the elegant, contemporary design.
White walls create a gallery-like environment for the homeowners’ bold, modern artwork, and midcentury modern furniture fits nicely with the home’s clean lines. Glass-topped tables add to the room’s openness, while a large, gray rug breaks up the pale wood floors and defines the seating area.
The modified floor plan incorporated what had been a porch at the rear of the house, enclosing the space and turning it into a combination office and laundry room adjacent to the den. The two spaces are separated by a pony wall and integrated open shelves that are visible and accessible from either room.
This great room takes advantage of a great lake view through oversize sliding glass doors. It includes a large blue sectional sofa centered on an in-wall fireplace, and the high ceiling includes dormer windows for additional natural light.
This Hollywood Hills property is stunning from the large living area that is completely open, to the dramatic dining room and contemporary kitchen. This property allows for great indoor/outdoor entertaining that seamlessly flows together.
