Living Room: Before

This living space looked like it had just stepped out of the seventies, with the floor to ceiling wood and heavy stone fireplace, but designers will give it some modern flair to match the rest of the house.

Masculine and Sophisticated Living Room

This lodge inspired living room is a unique space, perfect for entertaining. Floor to ceiling wood makes the space feel warm, like a hunting lodge, but large windows bring in plenty of natural light, making the space feel brighter. Furniture with darker colors and textures, such as leather and wood, blend with pieces like the ceiling fan and light fixtures to make the space masculine, yet sophisticated.

Midcentury Modern Living Room With Paneled Ceiling

Many of the wood-paneled rooms in this cabin had a dark, cramped feel, so to lighten the look, designers painted the redwood walls white. The ceilings were left exposed to show off the beautiful natural tones.
