Re: Spare, Light-filled Great Room...

I absolutely love this room!

Not cluttered looking & it certainly is pleasant.

Re: Spare, Light-filled Great Room...

It's lovely, @stevieb 

 

I especially love that wall of French doors.

Also loving the wicker chairs and the sailboat.  I do love a coastal look.  (That doesn't mean I don't also love other looks, sometimes equally.)

I also love wider plank floors.  The blue rug under the white sofa seems to echo the waterside.  

 

I found the site describing this farmhouse and loved the lighting in the upper hallway.  Cozy and refreshing.

Looks very much like an average family would live here.  Even though it isn't ornate, it looks comfortable and spacious.

Isn't it the coolest, @Oznell  and @stevieb 

 

I love it when we're all on the same page.  Sigh . . .  📃

I like this. I’m not usually into the beach theme but I love the sail boat. I think the white sofa is just right to soften the wood flood and table. I love the windows. Nicely done.

Re: Spare, Light-filled Great Room...

The plank flooring should be laid the other way,  in addition too many windows, and there is no accent  colors on the wall.   A  purple color would really make the fireplace 

pop.   A lace curtain valance would soften the hard lines and bring a feeling 

of coziness that has not been achieved in this room.    I see no TV in this room to keep oneself entertained.   It is all just too plain ,  simple and boring.  

 

Ha. Ha.   Just kidding,  Can you tell I am bored ?   If I got one laugh out of my review of this room,  I did good.    Well..... atleast I cracked myself up.   The room is great.  And I wish I had that fireplace.
