Inspired by the surrounding landscape, a warm, earthy color scheme and natural textures are used to create a warm, welcoming home office. A rolled arm daybed doubles as a couch or bed for overnight guests, while the wood accent wall brings a rustic vibe to the space.
The corner view of this traditional living room reveals large wood-framed mirrors that reach the floor facing french doors that lead outside. Two neutral sofas provide seating opposite a single traditional chair. A flatscreen television is mounted over a stone fireplace, and a piece of wall art adds touches of yellow, green and pink to the neutral room.
The formal dining room in this English cottage is outfitted in the traditional style. Rich, wood furniture is the highlight of the space, along with a traditional oriental rug and traditional artwork. To lighten the space and make it feel warmer, however, designers took advantage of the ample natural light spilling into the space from the French doors. By blending white walls and traditional furniture, designers have created an elegant, updated space that is both warm and inviting.
So as not to block views from the kitchen, the dining room's host and hostess chairs were relocated to the living room where they carve out a seating area next to an oversized floor mirror constructed from reclaimed wood.
The addition of this staircase in the dining room adds access to the master suite of this renovated 1920s bungalow. The space under the staircase makes a perfect spot for a built-in closet, while the home's original window provides nice, natural light to the dining area.
A long neutral sectional provides a natural separation of living and dining areas in this basement. The sofa's low profile keeps the room feeling open. Exposed ceiling beams and built-in shelves bring contrast to the neutral space, and an octagon-shaped glass table adds interest.
