Great Room With High Wood Ceilings and Neutral Fireplace
Symmetry can be so pleasing to the eye — and that's especially true in this beautiful great room. High wood ceilings supported by metal beams make the space feel airy and light, while stone walls bring a rustic, Old World feel. Contemporary white linen sofas provide a perfect spot to watch TV or enjoy the warmth of the fireplace.
In this dining room, a bench lines one side of the trestle table. It's a fresh approach to seating that keeps the mood casual and friendly. The simple table runner is another nod to the room's laid-back, country style.
A banquette is the perfect solution for getting a crowd around a table. With comfortable leather cushions and textured throw pillows, the banquette is not only a great family dining spot, but also a great spot to relax. Slate tile grounds the space, which pairs rich blue walls with a white tongue-and-groove ceiling.
A distressed iron base pairs with a rustic wood top for a chic farmhouse-style dining table. The blue banquette with a leather cushion is great for piling in tons of family and friends to enjoy a meal together.
This living room area provides a playful air of visual stimulation; lively punches of tangerine and kelly green merged with varying shades of cobalt and indigo blues. A heavy dose of woven sea grass added to the distinctive maritime air while an assortment of sea shells, blue-and-white pottery and a colorful collection of art came together to create a place of delight in this low-key beach cottage.
Whitewashed walls and a whitewashed vaulted ceiling reflect all the natural light pouring into this game room, making it feel bigger. A sliding barn door leads to a small bathroom. Built in shelves and a dresser provide plenty of storage for games and toys.
HGTV Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed this casual dining space into a family coffee bar – a place for family and friends to gather for eating and entertaining. Chalkboard paint on the wall creates a cafe-like atmosphere, while the floating shelves add a hint of rustic style.
