This great room can easily accommodate a crowd, what with its open kitchen, formal dining space and nearby sitting area. Wood paneling overhead draws the eye to the mountain views and helps the modern interior feel a little more connected to the wilderness.
A large, elegant island opens up to the family room, and a rustic farm table in front of the island serves as a cozy spot for family dining and entertaining. As reclaimed 100-year old barn wood adorns the ceiling, large white trestles add texture and beauty, while anchoring the entire space.
The great room flows seamlessly between the main living spaces of the kitchen, morning room and dining room, uniting the areas with exposed concrete floors. The floors are finished with a terrazzo grind, providing a clean, polished look that works beautifully with the rammed earth wall.
This charming great room wows with high ceilings, industrial metal supports and exposed ductwork. Stone walls give the space an Old World feel, yet contemporary sofas and animal hide chairs bring an amazing, updated element. Space to store logs near the fireplace is both functional and decorative, and the TV above the fireplace makes this room truly multipurpose.
This spacious great room features a curved ceiling with exposed beams and steel cables that add an industrial look to the otherwise rustic space. Plush neutral sofas and two plaid armchairs earn a pop of color from vibrant purple throw pillows.
An elegant dining room with a carved wood table and statement-making aged bronzed and crystal chandelier opens up to a cozy seating area in front of a fireplace. The elegant black and gold painted console on the right is an ideal solution for media storage.
The focal point of the great room is a rammed earth wall, which is 60 feet long 3 feet thick. The wall is complete with natural striations that not only serve as a beautiful piece of art but also as an energy-efficient thermal mass system that prevents heat from penetrating interior spaces. This wall extends to the covered exterior terrace, creating a feeling of the outside living within. The transparent sliding walls of glass work in sync with the infinity-edge pool, allowing the house to breathe as the wind is gently drawn across the water and into the living space.
Neutral tones with pops of brown create an inviting place to sit and relax in this modern great room. Glass doors open up on either side of the room to bring in natural light and the fresh air from the outdoors.
Wall-to-wall windows showcase a stunning view of the Hawaii coast from every part of this great room. A bright blue area rug and modern, white leather sectional define the living area. The textured wooden ceiling treatment and contemporary drop ceiling add dimension and interest.
