Open-Plan Craftsman Eat-In Kitchen and Living Space
In an open-plan concept, designers strive not only to create separate zones within one large space but to make the end result feel cohesive. In this home, the designers at Carlton Architecture + DesignBuild did both with finesse. “We divided individual spaces with furniture groupings and circulation. Common materials such as steel, rift sawn white oak cabinetry, and dark stained oak floors are used to unify the three areas,” they explain.
Facing sofas offer plenty of seating in the living room, while a tufted bench doubles as a coffee table between the two. A beautiful blend of earthy neutrals, natural texture and patterned textiles is full of character and comfort.
Here's another example of taking advantage of the traditional Craftsman deep porch to make a house feel more like a home. Note the comfy seating area in front. The paint colors are by BEHR: Quail Ridge, Pebbled Shore and Blooming Wisteria.

Jenelle Isaacson of Living Room Realty played up the architectural details of this home's trim by playing down the body color of the home. She found the perfect dark gray for the base that worked with the indirect light of the Oregon skies. Next, she painted the door details, columns and porch ceilings a simple white, really making them pop.
