The flooring changes in level and material from area to area, helping to create clear definitions without having to resort to full walls. Dropping the living room by one step sets it up as the center of the home and it really showcases the light stone flooring. Twenty-four inch stone tiles and no visible grout lines create a shiny, modern floor that really works with the muted area rug and classic furniture.
The ceiling also varies dramatically from area to area, with wood beams and soffits helping to show separation while not limiting the open view throughout the space. Unusual touches such as the triangular skylight add a daring element.
The many variations in this space would feel busy without the consistency in design and color. The columns that delineate the corners are all the rich camel-color of natural leather with an interesting set of lines that are also consistent from one to another. The same color is reflected in the wood steps and thresholds.
The décor of the room works very well, but this home would be interesting even empty. When you start with a good design, it’s easier to find furniture that takes advantage of a space.
