MontlakeCraftsman Living Room, Seattle

This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

    I once heard a photo stylist explain the difference between "eclectic" and "collected." This room is definitely the latter; it's a mix of carefully selected pieces and features classical architecture. It also has the most inviting-looking sofa around, complete with casually tossed, unmatching throw pillows.

    Trust the couch, that old standby, to cushion you into a tryptophan-induced slumber. Add lots of throw pillows for extra comfort.

    Stuffed and cozy: In lieu of leather, a den might have casual slipcovered furniture. It can be smaller than family rooms, and the furniture can be larger and feel almost over-stuffed. That creates a wonderful sense of coziness and intimacy.

    Shawn Gauthier added this to Warm Up Your Home for WinterOct 29, 2011

    Continue by adding lots of throw pillows to your sofa and filling your walls with framed artwork. Don’t go overboard: You want your space to feel collected, not cluttered.
