Anchored in white, this living room is the perfect clean, contemporary space for these homeowners and their family. The living room is instantly warmed by the natural light let in by the trio of large windows to the right of the space, and exposed beams add further warmth and contrast, along with a bit of dimension to the elegant, contemporary space.
The focal point of this white family room is a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams and two black circular chandeliers. A white sofa and armchairs are paired with a woven natural fiber area rug, while two black French doors open to reveal backyard patio area.
As seen on Cousins on Call, this open floor plan lower level houses a kitchen, dining area, and living room for the family. John and Anthony have taken a more modern space and have added funkier details to fit the family's eclectic style. The unique detail above the dining table adds character and bohemian charm, while the wall behind the television, with its natural wood and open shelving, gives a nod to the Asian style. Plush furniture and myriad patterns help to bring out the eclectic feeling of the design.
By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, HGTV Fixer Upper host Chip Gaines found the original fireplace underneath, and decided to keep it as a unique design element. The original shiplap was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood awnings were installed around the windows.
A sophisticated color palette of pineapple, charcoal gray and soft white creates a cool, contemporary vibe in this stylish downstairs living room. Linen ikat and zigzag pillows create a fun and cozy atmosphere, while a limestone-topped cocktail table with an iron base grounds the space.
