Transitional Open Great Room With Neutral Sectional
A faded vintage rug anchors this casual living space in the open great room. The gray cotton sofa with curved arms adds a contemporary touch. An Asian-inspired coffee table brings an unexpected element.
This two-story great room includes two seating areas -- one oriented toward the flat-screen TV, the other positioned to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace -- and are delineated by matching chandeliers. Telescoping glass doors slide completely open to fully connect the room to the pool deck for easy indoor-outdoor living.
A hand-planed buffet table separates the kitchen from the great room in this transitional home. Handmade light sculptures by artist Suzanne Derrer replace traditional lamps, giving the room a whimsical quality.
Traditional Stone Fireplace Makes Living Room Feel Extra Cozy
A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace separates the living room from the entryway, making the two spaces feel extra cozy. Meanwhile, a neutral sectional and two chevron-patterned armchairs ensure that there are enough seats for guests.
Susan Brunstrum paired dark woodwork and floors with her cream and blue color palette for a stunning effect. The soft colors on the interior walls allow the wall of windows, framed in this darker wood, to take prominence in the room. Sofas were upholstered in cream on which the designer placed dark blue patterned pillows as accents.
Transitional Great Room Features Ceramic Deer Busts
Two large armchairs are angled toward the center of this great room, carving out a conversation area for two. Ceramic deer busts adorn the wall behind the chairs, adding rustic flair to the transitional space.
The main living spaces were originally closed off from each other, but for a family with three kids, the rooms were more functional opened up. Now kids can play and parents can be cooking dinner and everyone is still within sight.
