What Houzz contributors are saying:
Living room. The living room was part of the existing home, which had a chopped-up layout and low ceiling. Continuing that wonderful open and light feeling from the addition was the goal. A black grasscloth-wrapped coffee table anchors the living room; Tharp oriented the furniture around it. Ivory slipcovers continue the easy-breezy casualness. A flat-weave rug echoes the stripes of the planks on the ceiling.To the right, she replaced an old brick fireplace and its raised hearth with a stone slab surround that’s flush with the floor, which saved valuable space for furniture. The rest of the surround is planking, for added texture. Chairs: Lee Industries; rug: Merida
