Craftsman Living Room: Howard Hughes’ Summertide Nevada Estate
A stone fireplace cozies up the living room in the main house of billionaire Howard Hughes’ former estate, Summertide. With 500 feet of frontage on Lake Tahoe in Crystal Bay, Nev., the 5.5-acre estate has a 2,518-square-foot main house, a 1,343-square-foot guesthouse, a detached four-car garage and a pier and buoy for enjoying the lake.
This dining room is filled with eclectic craftsman furniture in various types of wood. The main pieces include a sturdy dining room table and wood chairs as well as a sideboard that resembles an old library catalog and doubles as a bar and storage space.
Craftsman-Style Living Room With Flagstone Fireplace
In this focal fireplace by architect Jim Rill, Pennsylvania flagstone distinguishes the fireplace surround and floor, and the mantel and trim are made of clear fir to complement the mission-style furniture and exposed beam ceiling beautifully. Note how placing the TV off to one side rather than directly above the hearth keeps the focus on the fireplace.
Craftsman-Style Game Room With Modern Leather Chairs
A dedicated sports viewing area boasts curved, modern leather chairs that hug the body for ultra-comfortable lounging. Dark wood trim and a chandelier with shades give the space a distinct Craftsman look. Sliding glass doors let in natural light to brighten this lower level game room.
Tiered, deep-cushion theater seating allows for comfortable, casual lounging. Situated conveniently next to the viewing area, the wet bar keeps refreshments stocked and includes a bar top with modern stools for entertaining.
Tons of beautiful wood details—wood paneled walls, hardwood floors, stately chairs—create a natural, organic feel in this chic Craftsman-style sitting room. Pops of soft yellow are used to break up the all neutral palette.
Neutral Craftsman Sitting Room With Gray Fireplace
The careful selection of accessories and details is what makes this lovely Craftsman-style sitting room stand apart. The pale gray graphic prints on both the large artwork and fireplace surround tie in with the Moroccan-inspired pendant lamp.
Bright Craftsman Living Room With Natural Stone Fireplace and Large Wall of Windows
Natural light floods this living room from the wall of large, unshaded windows. The stone accent panel brings a great natural element to the room. A dark brown leather armchair with matching ottoman and wood furniture provide beautiful color contrasts to the light neutral walls and carpet. An area rug grounds the design and adds to the color palette.
Arts & Crafts Living Room with Wood Trim, Accent Wall
In this Arts & Crafts-inspired living room, the design team used large-scale furniture and lighting to bring the spaces down to a comfortable level and went for a rustic-modern vibe to tie in with the existing wood trim. A wood accent wall creates a focal point behind the stone fireplace, while modern artwork and a symmetrical furniture arrangement draw the eye through the space. Comfortable seating adds to the room's family-friendly ambiance.
Dark stained wood ceiling beams make a statement on the vaulted ceiling, contrasting with cream colored walls. A green, patterned rug injects a splash of color to the neutral space and defines the living room.
