PUTTING THE GREAT IN GREAT ROOMS
You know what we love about the great room? How it pulls the whole house together. Airy and open, a great, great room gracefully connects a home’s living spaces. It brings the outside in when it opens to a California room. Or transforms everyday dining by putting the spotlight on an eat-in kitchen. And nothing keeps family connected like having plenty of open space for board games and movie nights. So how do you put extra great in your great room? Take a look at some of our favorite photos and get ready to be inspired.
#1 COZY WITH A MODERN TWIST
St. James Residence Three Great Room
Are you getting the cozy vibes? At St. James, it’s all about that fireplace, creating a functional focal point flanked by built-ins perfect for tucking away the Monopoly board. It’s a traditional set up that gets a new-school twist when the four-panel sliding door opens an entire wall to the outdoors and the covered California room. Living space, doubled. And with breezes to boot!
#2 TALK ABOUT TEXTURE
Viridian Residence Two Great Room
Big and spacious, this great room at Viridian is filled with eye candy—and the site lines to appreciate it all. Where to look first? The wood-look tiled statement wall? The dimensional wallcoverings? Or at that wall of windows? Yet harmony reigns thanks to a cohesive neutral palette. And the oversized kitchen island is a resting place, both literally and visually. It begs you to pull up a seat and tuck up to the table, still connected to the action but just slightly set apart.
#3 OPEN UP
Alston Residence Three Great Room
Varenna Residence One Great Room
They feel elegant, open and spacious. Which is just the vibe you want for entertaining. Light a fire in the fireplace and uncork a bottle of wine. Family and friends can flow from kitchen to dining table to comfy sofa like a breeze.
#4 ALL TOGETHER NOW
VuePointe Residence Five Great Room
A great room with a smaller footprint lives large at VuePointe, thanks to long lines. It’s about zones and creative multi-tasking.
VuePointe Residence Five Kitchen
The kitchen counter is a sleek breakfast bar in the mornings as lunches get made, while after school the dining room table turns into homework-central during dinner prep. And when it’s time to relax, there’s space for the whole family to snuggle up for movie night. Pass the popcorn!
