To make this dining room ready for the holidays, designers added sprigs of evergreen to the chandelier and buffet, then added wintry accessories like snow-dusted pinecones and a small white Christmas tree.
After dinner, everyone can enjoy drinks and casual conversation in the living area. Here, a flat screen TV anchors the stone fireplace, while plush sofas in neutral hues promise to keep the setting nice and comfortable.
Live Edge Mantel and Vintage Sepia Photograph in Rustic Living Room
In the living room of this Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna created a masculine, rustic design for the family to enjoy. A dark leather sofa and rawhide chairs provide seating in the space, while a metal and glass coffee table provides a bit of modern flair to the space. A live edge mantel piece mounted on a stone fireplace complements the rustic design, while a log end table and vintage sepia photograph help to complete the space.
Contrasting wood finishes give this office a sense of warmth while highlighting the custom spun glass rondelles set into the cabinet panels. The panels slide to the sides to conceal the bookshelves and office items and to reveal hand-turned wood pieces made by the homeowner that are displayed on the center shelves. The desk features custom-fabricated legs.
For this renovation, Joanna and Chip were able to come up with a floor-plan and a decorating scheme that effectively merged elements of two basic styles to create an updated coastal feel with rustic accents. "The goal here," said Chip, "is we want the Jacksons to feel like they're on vacation every single day."
The large rustic dining table comfortably seats eight with a mix of chairs and a bench in a perfect example of the home's friendly, unfussy style. Overhead, painting the sloped ceiling white helps it fade into the background and makes the room feel even more spacious.
