Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I like simple, well crafted wood pieces: mid century modern, arts and crafts, mission styles with bold, colorful upholstered modern furniture. I like the 70s: shag carpet, swag lamps, paneling, harvest gold, avocado green, orange, brown. Lots of color, with green as my neutral: sage, mint, olive, moss, citrus, ... With plenty of space for art, books, and dogs, plus a garage workshop for my husband.

Do we need a fireplace? Do not use the one we have, due to location on lower level. A great focal point, adds warmth and style to rooms. Maybe a gas insert, or put candles or flowers? Like the rock with flame ideas.
