Minneapolis Luxury Living Room

Luxury and comfort meet in this formal, yet comfortable living room. A truly transitional space with a traditional skirted sofa and modern choarcoal grey velvet armless chairs. The two sided fireplace opens the space to the sun room beyond. Custom draperies flank the large bank of floor to ceiling windows and the coiffured ceiling leaves no surface unfinished. The kitchen features custom cabinetry in the perfect blend of alder wood and enameled finishes. Professional appliances provide modern ammenities to this charming kitchen. No details are spared from the wide plank walnut floor to the panled island and the stone countertops. Special thanks to Gonyea Homes and Craig Bares Photography.

Beautiful built-ins. What is the usable depth of the built-ins?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hi! As a general rule of thumb, actual bookshelves can be as little as 10" deep or as much as 14" deep. 12" deep bookshelves are my favorite. Medium sized objects and books fit without getting lost. Base cabinet storage can really vary depending on what you need to store. If it's a/v components make sure you measure them AND their plug molds to ensure they fit. If you're not confident on your measurements enlist a designer to redline your cabinet plans;)

Is that cultured or real stone. If the cultured, could I trouble you for the manufacturer and color?

Hi! Sure thing! It is from the manufacturer Cultured Stone, but I can't seem to locate the exact specification on their site anymore, but this is the closest look in their current product line up:
Thanks for your fun feedback!

Like the divided shelves with TV on side. Don't want them staggered like this. And they need a bigger TV to fill the space. Probably double cupboards on bottom. (each side 56-60")
