What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Warm gray paired with blue and rich wood. It’s hard to argue with the appeal of a blue-and-gray color scheme, and this room, designed by Carl Mattison, demonstrates how winning the combination can be. Warm gray paneling and cabinetry provide a rich background for the blue sofa and dark wood coffee table, with an overall effect that’s inviting and warm. Can’t you imagine having a cup of tea and a cozy chat here? No wonder this was the most popular new family room image uploaded on Houzz from April through June.
5. Define spaces. In an open space like this, it’s especially important for a potential homeowner to see how the furniture layout will work. The living area is defined by the rug and ceiling fan, and the dining nook is defined by the cabinet wall, millwork and lighting. “You can never underestimate lighting in a project like this. It can really make the difference,” he says. Wire basket light: Shades of Light; sconce over sink: Restoration Hardware; dinette light: Cost Plus World Market. See more lighting products
