Tuscan Inspiration: Family Room and Dining Area

This large, dramatic room contains a family room with a massive fireplace and a large, open dining area. Heavy rustic beams help to bring down the scale of the room and really add a lot of character. The doors lead out to a covered porch.

The Shabby Nest
The golden neutral color on these walls appears to be similar to Garden Path by Valspar.
