A house that was built in the 1960's had great bones and character. With the exposed wood beam in the ceiling, a real wood burning fireplace, large window and warm wooden floors as the starting point, it needed a layout and design that kept the place feeling warm and cozy. The original character of the space was retained with the use of wood furniture, leather director's chairs and a gallery wall full of family pictures. We changed the layout by replacing the old couch & love seat with a comfortable grey sectional sofa, flanked by a console table at the back, that helped to visually extend the entry way. The bead board paneling in the dining room was painted white which complemented the white brick fire place. The dining area continued the warmth and we cocooned the settee in between two IKEA cabinets painted in the same color as the wall to get a high end look. All in all, a great place for the family to hang out!
