The expansive living room is a place to socialize, relax, and live as a family. The wall chinking and tongue and groove vaulted ceilings were painted a soft white to allow the beauty rustic hand hewn timbers to shine. The ombre wall over the stairs was hand painted by the design team in order to bring the colors and horizon of the lake into the home’s interior. The floor’s subtle coloring provides a perfect canvas for the modern furnishings to pop. Views of the gentling sloping lot provide the perfect backdrop for the newly added double French doors. Custom elements like the tile and shiplap fireplace, welded steel mantle, and chandelier complete the space by providing aesthetic and functional benefits to make family members and guests can feel equally comfortable.
