Casual and Easy

The great room brings tranquil and soothing tones to a gracious and open space in the center of the home. The comfortable design makes it an inviting space to relax and unwind.

Tall, Dark and Stylish

Dark exposed beams add striking contrast against the room’s vanilla-toned ceiling and draw the eye up, emphasizing the height of the space. Clean lines on the modern side tables echo the modern design and provide a handy place for drinks or snacks.

Lush Layers

Layering modern accents throughout the space keeps the eye moving and adds interest throughout the room. A low-profile light fixture helps keep the space open and airy, while the addition of plants brings life and color to the room.

Historical Reference

A faux-steel facade on the fireplace transforms it into a sleek focal point and nods to Pittsburgh’s rich industrial history.

Naturally Neutral

The mix of gray, white and black tones echoes the color scheme found throughout the home. Symmetry and balance lend a formal air, but the calming colors keep it casual.

Stylishly Separates

A wood-and-metal console table behind the couch displays a variety of books and collectibles and helps delineate the living space from the kitchen.

Contemporary Seating

Matching round ottomans in a soft, gray fabric add extra seating and play off the geometric design elements in the art and accessories found throughout the great room.

Matching Set

Twin side chairs in cream with round bolster pillows add soft seating to the room and balance the more masculine design elements.

Organic Textures

A gray-washed wood finish on the circular coffee table brings an organic, natural texture to the room while a potted plant weaves another outdoor element into the design.

Fine-Art Humor

A well-dressed bulldog portrait adds a sense of humor and whimsy to the room. The pop of gold in the painting echoes metallic elements found in the accessories and details throughout the space.

Thoughtful Textures

A framed painting and small sculpture on this side table transform this corner of the room into a miniature art gallery and add interest and texture to the space.

Botanical Beauty

A mix of lush green plants adds life and color to the space and brings a bit of the outdoors inside for a relaxed, easy vibe.

Elegant and Masculine

A mix of gray-washed woods, metal, steel and soft-cream tones are a soothing blend of industrial and organic elements that work together and create a graceful yet masculine room.

Study in Contrast

The modern gold light fixture above the fireplace adds a hint of sparkle without taking up too much visual space. The soft, white upholstered furniture and gray-washed wood floors reflect the natural light from the surrounding windows and add an airy frame to the faux-metal fireplace.

Cozy Reading Spot

A high wingback chair in cream adds additional seating and is a comfy spot to relax by the fire with a book at the end of the day.

Industrial Focal Point

The faux-metal fireplace incorporates steel rivets in the detailing and creates an alluring focal point in the lush, masculine living space.

Layers of Gray

The gray-washed wood coffee table plays off the soft multicolored area rug for a relaxed, organic feel.

Woven Warmth

The woven area rug in soft gray adds warmth and an organic texture against the cream-upholstered chairs. The rug’s nubby texture adds dimension and provides a nice massage underfoot.

Geometric Layers

A mix of geometric patterns in the throw and pillows found on the couch add a modern element and create graphic interest.

Good Flow

The open floor plan of the great room opens to the adjacent kitchen and breakfast nook, keeping this level of the home bright and airy.

Industrial Window Treatments

Mesh fabric in a charcoal hue adds an industrial touch to the windows. The chain-mail-like texture echoes the other industrial elements found throughout the space.

Color Coordinated

Layers of cream, gray and deep wood tones in the great room play off the color scheme and hues found in the adjacent kitchen, giving the house a cohesive, easy ambiance.

Go Up or Down

The stairs that lead down to the basement and also up to the second floor of the home are located just beyond the foyer.

Bright Backdrop

Bright white walls keep the space feeling open and airy even with dark details and industrial, metal accents.

Handsome Pair

Matching cream-colored chairs with dark-charcoal throws feel handsome and inviting and play off the black-and-white mural on the adjacent wall.

Dramatic Transition

Dark-charcoal-toned walls in the adjacent breakfast nook elegantly frame the open entry to the great room.

Relaxed and Inviting

A cream-upholstered couch with mismatched throw pillows feels relaxed and inviting while providing ample seating.

Open and Refined

The soft vanilla tones found in the great room play off the white cabinets and upholstered barstools in the kitchen to unify the whole look and provide continuity between the two spaces.

Great Heights

Extra-tall ceilings in the great room and kitchen keep the space feeling open and airy.
