Comfortable Great Room Pairs Neutral Furniture and Bold Accents
In this transitional great room, neutral furniture pairs beautifully with bold blue and orange accents. The mixed patterns of the upholstered chair and rug draw attention to the center of the space, while their neutral tones contrast nicely with the dark wood flooring.
Designer Susan Brunstrum carefully followed her client's wishes when furnishing this two-story great room that features a wall of windows and an expansive brick fireplace. She employed a Ralph Lauren-type approach to selecting the dark brown leather sectional, beige club chair and upholstered ottoman that serves as a coffee table for the room. Especially fetching: the beach scene over the fireplace and the latticed piece behind it.
Transitional Great Room With Angled Hardwood Floor
An angled hardwood floor gives the appearance of more space in this transitional great room. A narrow dining table allows for more seating in the small area, while white chairs pop against the natural tones.
The open floor plan for the living area and dining space finds unity in the bright white color palette with sea green and pink accents. The soft colors draw focus on the real showstopper: floor-to-ceiling views of Puget Sound.
Susan Brunstrum meticulously designed her client's great room with a clear vision in mind. From the dark wood railing at the stairs to the textured console table and knickknacks, each accoutrement has its place and function in the room.
This beach condo great room is one large, bright, and open space that includes a full kitchen, dining area, and living room. Nautical stripes and oceanic blues reference the stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico right outside the living room windows, and there's a slipcovered queen sleeper sofa to provide plenty of room for guests.
Designed to resemble an old stone structure, this great room stands as the home's hub with wings radiating out like spokes. The nature-inspired color palette flows effortlessly from the great room to the cooking and dining spaces.
This family room designed by Brian Patrick Flynn features windows dressed with plaid draperies, a ceiling painted 60-percent lighter than the navy-blue walls, a sofa outfitted in machine-washable slipcovers and a houndstooth-pattern storage ottoman that doubles as a coffee table.
White Great Room With Fireplace and Lime-Green Abstract Art
Lime-green abstract art adds a punch of pizzazz to the classic blue and white color palette in this transitional great room. The white-painted brick fireplace serves as a traditional centerpiece with a magnificent modern twist.
The interior of this 36-year-old home proves just as inviting thanks to a recent renovation. In the span of just 18 months, designer Raegan Ford opened her floor plan with vaulted ceilings and white walls, and even introduced comfy, contemporary furniture.
