HGTV Feature - Foothills Estates Craftsman Redesign
When it comes to designing a living room, the fireplace played a major role in this home. The fireplace is the main focal point of this room and is a key feature in defining the space as Craftsman. Accordingly, we made choices with an eye to playing up that focal point.
The wood stain of the fireplace millwork focuses the eye and picks up on the color of the hardwood floors, but is a nice contrast to the white trim and baseboards throughout the house. The floating shelving adds interest and keep the space current and gives it a more open feeling rather than traditional built-ins. We kept the wall paint in the earth tones to keep with the Craftsman scheme but decided on modern, clean lines for the furniture and incorporated brighter pops of color in the accessories. The trim detail on the beams and columns adds interest to the space and repeats the theme.
