Just because you go off the grid doesn’t mean you can’t update your Facebook page by the fire. Each Wedge comes wired for cable and Internet. Mini gas-burning or electric fireplaces and AC can also be added.
Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat, and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family.
We got rid of the draperies and painted the windows gray for a more open and modern feel. A new mantle and all new furniture made for a refreshed and now usable space!
Floor-to-ceiling windows all along the side wall of this spacious living room look out onto the Vail, Colorado valley and mountains. Sofas placed back to back divide the space and help create two separate seating areas.
This spacious Cape Cod family home offers a stunning great room complete with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and exposed beam ceilings. Neutral sofa’s and matching armchairs provide the room with comfortable seating options, while staying true to the coastal atmosphere.
This petite living space mixes rustic and Southwestern styles for a feel that's warm and inviting. Decorative lath wall panels clad the exterior wall where barn doors once hung. Those same doors have been repurposed to slide over the large living room window when privacy is desired.
By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, HGTV Fixer Upper host Chip Gaines found the original fireplace underneath, and decided to keep it as a unique design element. The original shiplap was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood awnings were installed around the windows.
The old, outdated living room with this updated, stylish living room. The couple wanted to blend the natural, rustic style of the cabin and a more modern feel. To make this a reality, they used natural materials such as the leather ottoman and pillows and the wicker storage baskets. They then added modern, open shelving next to the television. With the suede couch, the couple now has plenty of seating.
A wall of glass extends to the peaked, cathedral-height ceiling in this expansive Lake Tahoe great room, overlooking a view as picture-perfect as a holiday card. This mountain home is directly on the skyway, allowing residents ski-in, ski-out access. The structure's orientation on its high-elevation lot offers 180-degree views.
The new living room in the King home is open and spacious. Walls have been removed, creating a much more open feel. Shiplap has been put in and new wood floors have been installed, as seen on Fixer Upper.
Fireplaces that project out from the wall are ideal for flanking with a bookcase, a cabinet or both, as is done here. Their heights, color and basic framework is kept the same for a consistent look. To draw attention to the fireplace, the overmantel is covered in reclaimed barn wood and exterior lanterns adorn the wall instead of interior sconces.
