Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - the Anti McMansion

An area off to the side of this great room was set aside for the kids' play space. Brightly colored foam tiles delineate the space, and serve as a soft landing spot, without competing with the room's decor. A vaulted bead board ceiling, left with a natural finish, further isolates the two spaces, giving it a cozy separate feel.

These are white oak, #2 (that's the cut- we did that for extra variation and some visible knotting), with 3 coats of water based poly.

These were bead board sheets. Yes, id recommend removing the ceiling. This part of the house was new construction though so not an issue.

Are you referring to the entire room? Or the play area seen on the right of the photo? The room dimensions should be listed in the photo's other questions. Let me know if you need some more information! -Ellie

These are oak floors, 4" planks, with a water-based polyurethane. We used water-based instead of the more popular oil based so they ended up with a paler, whiter appearance instead of the typical yellowed hue. We also went with a slightly lesser quality (I think it was a 2, instead of the "1" or "select" grade) so we would have more variation and knots in the boards.

They are chrome and glass, from Crate and Barrel. These are from several seasons ago, but I'm sure they have something current that is similar. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

One of Ellie's favorite features is the ceiling she designed in the great room. The ceiling is a glossy white beadboard with flat beams (the room didn't have the height for dropped beams). The area right next to the living room is the kids' play area. Here, the couple decided to make the ceiling a bit higher and left the beadboard in a natural color. The difference provides a subtle sense of distinction between the two spaces, and helps the play area feel warmer. Couches: Baldwin slipcovered couch and chair, Macy'sPlay area carpet: Skip Hop Playspot
