Sitting Room: Historic Prairie House in Riverside, Ill.
Two distinct sitting areas offer ample seating for family and friends when entertaining. Wood-backed sofas, stained glass lamps and upholstered benches reflect the craftsman design found throughout the home.
The warm, inviting kitchen opens up to a pretty blue dining room, creating an easy flow through the main areas of the home. Beautiful architectural details, like the structured columns and room dividers, add to the Craftsman feel of space.
The rooms in the home were carefully renovated to maintain the building's beauty and many of the original details. Designer Alexa Hampton was in charge of the interior design, freshening and updating the style with more modern comforts.
Upstairs Living Area: Historic Prairie House in Riverside, Ill.
Upstairs, an open, second floor living room includes both craftsman-style furnishings and traditional leather sofas for optimal seating. The unique, wood-trimmed ceiling adds stunning interest and texture to the room.
Craftsman Living Room With Rich, Warm Tone Details, White Sofa, Brown Leather Chairs and Decorative Fireplace Surround
Red curtains frame the french doors bringing natural light into this living room. A dark wood entertainment center and leather cushioned bench compliment the decorative wood fireplace surround and mantel. Brown leather chairs work with the rich, warm tones in the room while a white sofa adds a light counterpart to the heavy design elements.
Painted Windsor chairs and a contemporary take on a wagon wheel chandelier set off the warm wood trim in the dining room of this updated Craftsman home. A low, Mid Century-inspired sideboard complements the black-painted chairs. The design team used large-scale furniture and lighting to offset the home's high ceilings and bring the spaces down to a more comfortable level.
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.
Niche Under Stairwell Provides Perfect Space for Built-In Bookshelves, Reading Nook
All you need for your own personal home library or reading nook is a good bookshelf and a spot for a comfortable armchair. This reading spot makes use of a spot beneath a staircase that would otherwise be wasted. The back of the built-in bookcase is lined with removable wallpaper to give a pop of contrast to the moody green walls painted in Sherwin-Williams Country Squire. The nook includes an arc lamp to provide task lighting for reading and a small side table to hold a beverage, a soothing candle or the current book club book.
