Designer's NotesThe open plan allows for the large sectional facing the fireplace to address both the living and dining areas. The stone fireplace surround is mirrored in a venetian plaster finish on the opposite wall, while the wool and silk rug in the same range of colors ties the room together. I love this fresh feel of this room, clean and uncluttered.
The Living room was opened up to the areas around it. The small individual windows that were there before were combined into a large picture window overlooking the creek below. The concrete trough with the white pebbles in the foreground is an ethanol fireplace that brings drama in the evening.
I would add a few plants in the rock planter for a warmer feel.
I again feel plants in the rock planter would add a warmer touch.
The architect took this builder-grade chopped up home and transformed it to an open plan, where light is shared throughout and space flows uninterrupted from room to room. The stair at the entry foyer was demolished and an open tread stair took its place, allowing for the daylight to filter in from all directions. Love the openess!!
