love the lodge look. Can we achieve this as a loft over looking the DR?

1. Rethink Traditional SpacesUnless you’re a staunch believer in separate formal rooms, try merging your dining room and kitchen into a casual open space. “The kitchen and the morning room are the most important everyday spaces,” Boxx says. “We like to open them up into a space that’s comfortable for everyone.”A family outside of Clarksville did away with their formal dining room in favor of a casual dining area, seen here, connected to their kitchen and living room. “This is their country retreat, and they entertain a lot of people; they wanted an open yet warm atmosphere for larger groups,” Boxx says. The clients also chose a large sit-down island instead of a breakfast area.See more of this project

This area balances negative and positive space well. The big area is occupied by not only a living area but a dining room. This is because there's so much negative space that they must balance it with positive space by filling it with the furniture. The ceiling is extremely tall, but the banisters used to fill that negative space make the room seem a little more short and full. It's appealing because it doesn't look overstuffed or too empty even if there's a living room section and dining room section right next to each other. The fact that they managed to balance it is amazing, and this room is a great example of space.
