For this custom new home build, the living room was open to the dining room and kitchen, so the goal was for the space to coordinate with the other spaces and be a cozy, inviting room for the family to hang out together. Making sure there was storage for various toys and technology items was an important piece of the design. Incorporating rustic elements like shiplap and a reclaimed mantle were also design aspects our client was looking to include.
This living room feels inviting and welcoming with the oversized pillows and cozy textures on the large sectional that fits the entire family. Adding built-in storage on either side of the fireplace allows for items to be used during playtime and then stored away at night or when guests are over. Having a gas fireplace allows for cozy nights in, while eliminating the hassle of getting wood. Shiplap around the fireplace makes it the highlight in the room, especially when accented with a reclaimed wood mantle. Shelving on either side of the fireplace provides space for decor, books, and family photos. The space feels open and timeless, yet comfortable and brings in that modern farmhouse design our clients love.
