Rustic Cabin Great Room with Stone Fireplace
This charming rustic mountain retreat provides a perfect getaway for a growing family. This great room is anchored by a stone fireplace, a sectional to fit the whole family and a massive timber console.
Natural wood beams and exposed architectural details turn this wide-open living space into a rustic-chic haven. Woven textures and pale upholstered furnishings lend the room casual elegance. Industrial-style pendants provide light throughout the space.
The structure of the home is majestic, with exposed wood beams stretching over the open concept interior. A double-sided stone fireplace and chimney reaches up through the middle of the great room, the heart of the space.
This wide view of the great room lounge area shows the custom sheer drapery color-matched to the paint color used for the walls and ceiling. The drapes go from the ceiling line to the floor, to soften the hard edges of the tall windows.
A two-story great room with dramatic floor to ceiling fireplace, textured and warm white-colored sectional offering great flexibility and additional seating. It’s a classic color to pair with black but also an interesting partner with navy, red or gray.
Driftwood makes the base of the petite dining table at the heart of this home's great room, paired with sleek white chairs. The open concept layout of the space allows for easy flow between meal prep and entertaining.
Sometimes, one tree just isn’t enough. In a space as grand as this one, a single tree (even a giant) might get a bit lost against the soaring glass backdrop. Flanking the main tree with two smaller ones that are set back a bit helps to make a big impact, and create a sense of depth.
Sitting Area in Pine-Clad Great Room With Country Charm
Homeowners Ron and Jane Bladon bought their dream home in Ellijay, Ga., and decorated it to look classic and timeless. From the pine-clad walls to ample natural light, the house is light, bright and packed with country charm.
A beautiful stone wall fills the space above and around the fireplace in the cabin's great room, creating a nice contrast with the light wood paneling and enormous windows. Clusters of chairs make up multiple seating areas for game night, meals, relaxing fireside or simply enjoying the blissful location.
This two-story open space includes the living room and kitchen, creating the feeling of a great hall. Heavy, masculine elements, including the stone walls, timber trusses and hanging fixtures, are balanced with ivory painted trim and soft, neutral furnishings.
This elegant but somewhat rustic great room, designed by Susan Brunstrum, sends a blue and brown color palette to new heights in style. The walls are neutral, which allow the bold patterns of cobalt blue to take center stage in the furnishings of the room. The multi-colored painting is also a splendid addition above the fireplace mantel.
Hallway With Iron Balcony Railing Overlooks Great Room
This hall features a curved balcony area and iron railing that allow people passing through a glimpse at the rustic great room. A circular red floral area rug adds a pop of color, while the vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting keep the space open.
