Marie Burgos Design
Contemporary, stylish Bachelor loft apartment in the heart of Tribeca New York. Creating a tailored space with a lay back feel to match the client personality. This is a loft designed for a bachelor which 4 bedrooms needed to have a different purpose/ function so he could use all his rooms. We created a master bedroom suite, a guest bedroom suite, a home office and a gym. Several custom pieces were designed and specifically fabricated for this exceptional loft with a 12 feet high ceiling. It showcases a custom 12’ high wall library as well as a custom TV stand along an original brick wall. The sectional sofa library, the dining table, mirror and dining banquette are also custom elements. The painting are commissioned art pieces by Peggy Bates. Photo Credit: Francis Augustine

Tuscan Farm
Tuscan Farm
Centre Sky Architecture Ltd
Set in a wildflower-filled mountain meadow, this Tuscan-inspired home is given a few design twists, incorporating the local mountain home flavor with modern design elements. The plan of the home is roughly 4500 square feet, and settled on the site in a single level. A series of ‘pods’ break the home into separate zones of use, as well as creating interesting exterior spaces. Clean, contemporary lines work seamlessly with the heavy timbers throughout the interior spaces. An open concept plan for the great room, kitchen, and dining acts as the focus, and all other spaces radiate off that point. Bedrooms are designed to be cozy, with lots of storage with cubbies and built-ins. Natural lighting has been strategically designed to allow diffused light to filter into circulation spaces. Exterior materials of historic planking, stone, slate roofing and stucco, along with accents of copper add a rich texture to the home. The use of these modern and traditional materials together results in a home that is exciting and unexpected. (photos by Shelly Saunders)

Great rooms are open-concept spaces that include a living and dining room combination, often with the addition of a kitchen as well. They’re ideal for fostering a casual, social environment in the home, but all that undefined space can pose a bit of a challenge when it comes to arranging furniture and decor. So if you’re on the lookout for great room ideas, consider the following design tips and inspiration below.

1. Mix Up the Flooring

It’s nice to create sections within a great room, so that the space doesn’t feel overwhelming or drafty. One of the easiest ways to do this is to use different types of flooring throughout the room, with hardwood or tile in a kitchen and carpet or area rugs underneath a sitting area.

2. Statement Lighting

Your decor should help highlight and define different zones, so try hanging a bold chandelier above a dining table or sofa.

3. Highlight the Fireplace

If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, design the room around it. You can install stonework or wood paneling above the fireplace to span the height of your wall, or arrange sofas and chairs around it for a cozy gathering spot.

4. Add an Island

Great rooms with kitchens are ideal for socializing or spending time with the family, but it’s also nice to cordon off your prep space. Strike a balance by installing a kitchen island or wrap-around countertop, and leave the mess inside.

5. Lay Down a Warming Rug

Adding a rug is another easy way to define different zones and keep your home feeling warm and cozy. Put it under a dining table or in the center of a living room area.

6. Opt For a Sectional Sofa

If you’re picking out new furniture, think about what sorts of interior layouts will work with the flow of the space. Sectional sofas are great for creating a defined family room and will add to the casual, welcoming mood.

7. Paint the Walls

Great room design is all about balancing the grand scale with casual comfort, and sometimes going all white can leave the space feeling too cold. In that case, try painting the walls beige or blue to bring some color to the room.

8. Install Built-In Shelves

Consider integrating a library within your great room with built-in shelves or a large bookcase. Whether you keep novels or cookbooks on the walls, a built-in unit is ideal for unifying the space.

9. Go Grand with a Lodge Style

Great rooms with tall, vaulted ceilings deserve an interior style that’s equally impressive. Opt for a stately ski lodge look with a ribbon fireplace and plenty of warm woods.

10. Keep It Cozy

Even if you don’t have high ceilings, going with a cozy look is key in such a big space. Create a warm and rustic space with a white wooden beam ceiling, chunky throw blankets and a cream colored couch.
