Peaceful family room

"The architectural focal point in the living room is its ceiling, with wooden beams mounted on a 45-degree angle over white beadboard. Down-filled slipcovered sofas invite family and friends to sink in for long conversations. A TV is cleverly concealed behind the doors above the fireplace."   To see the rest of the home click here.

Floor-to-ceiling coziness

"Throughout the home, interior walls are clad in horizontal pine planks, modernized with glossy white paint, and the ceiling beams are exposed for a loft-like feel. The living room fireplace, with its floor-to-ceiling surround, features the same bricks used on the floor and outdoor patio."   To see other cozy, Christmas homes click here.

Organic wonder

"The family room is all about the stone fireplace and the driftwood coffee table," says Dave Leavitt, general manager of Fox Design Studio. "They share an organic sensibility that brings the beauty of the landscape in and represents the tranquility of the beach and all of its colours."   To see the rest of the home click here.

Warm backdrop

"In the living area, the black chandelier draws the eye up to the cathedral ceiling. The armchair beside the fireplace has special meaning – it came with the property. “There was a small house on the land and we found this lovely armchair inside, so it seemed only right to refinish it and give it new life,” says Lidia."   To see the rest of the home click here.

Magnificent hand-carved fireplace

"The living room's focal point is a hand-carved marble fireplace flanked by vintage crystal sconces and contemporary black and white prints. The herringbone pattern on the inside of the firebox is repeated in the flooring as well as in the custom cowhide rug."   To see the rest of the home click here.

A blue winter

"Susan traded two antique French chairs for these blue mid-century ones from her mother, which serve as a pop of colour and a modern element. The hits of blue are repeated in toss cushions in the library and a throw in the master bedroom. “Continued colour connects the spaces,” she says."   To see the rest of the home click here.

Charming hits of feminine flair

The rug in the family room was the starting point for the home’s subtle, pretty colour palette. Although the scheme is decidedly feminine, Jennifer balanced it with masculine clean-lined furnishings like the sofa, armchairs and bench. A wall of built-ins filled with coffee table books and decorative pieces is the focal point in the open-concept space.   To see the rest of the home click here.
