Mid Century HomeTransitional Living Room, Los Angeles
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The other end of the family room has a fireplace and a large piece of art, a portrait of a big buffalo. “He’s so funky, unexpected and full of character, he just makes the house,” Richter says. The chairs are vintage and were the homeowners’ own. Because the fireplace surround was such a disconnect from the rest of the style of the home, they painted it and the inset over it to put the attention elsewhere. Chain-stitched pillows and unusual vases bring in the geometry, while the hide area rug adds an organic shape. “With the large square rug in the sectional area, another rectangle wouldn’t have worked,” the designer says.
