What Houzz contributors are saying:
Although both sides of this room share a common color palette, the side adjoining the kitchen was designed with tougher materials, like leather, since it gets more use. Architectural elements — like the archway bisecting this room — can be helpful in breaking up a large space, as can bookcases and folding screens. Don’t overlook the opportunities a ceiling can offer. Installing a recessed ceiling over one or both halves of a room can help define seating areas within an open plan.Relax in style with comfy leather armchairs
3. Multiple seating areas. Furniture arrangement can be challenging, but this is a great example of how to pull off a room with double seating areas. An open console separates the two seating areas while two sisal rugs clearly define each space. I like the runner and the second rug layered on the sisal rug in the foreground. Layering mismatched furniture and textures help the room to feel more like the pieces were collected over time and less like a store showroom.
The family room is designed in an L-shape as one large room. The French doors across the back of the room can be thrown open for parties. Light-colored fabrics were used to give the home a beachy feel. Mark enjoys duck hunting and fishing, so you'll find some hunt-inspired accents here. The basket-weave seagrass rugs were custom made for the room. Heriz Persian rugs are layered on top.
