As others have said, like the space, the wood & stone, need some colors!

I love this...the clean color scheme, uncluttered appearance, rustic theme, very serene and pleasing.

This looks a lot like a house we rent for a long weekend in the Fall in upstate NY on Lake Ontario.

The ceiling beams look like they have horizontal cracks running all the way through them.

I like it!  It is rustic decor at this moment, but I see it can be flexible and easily transformed with a more modern campaign.

It's uncanny @vsm  because I was going to suggest that it was a bit Shaker in its understatement.

 

While, to me, the simplicity of the space is part of its charm, like several others, I would introduce a few pieces of more comfortable looking furniture and a bit of color and warmth. Done right, those additions need not detract from what was clearly the choice to keep this space simple. 

 

I do love the stone wall and fireplace.


Yes -- the stone wall and fireplace are lovely.  I like the simplicity, too -- the place just needs to be a bit more welcoming.  (As others have said, though, the open staircase -- while adding to the room's lightness and cleanness -- would scare me to death!)

@patriot .  That’s exactly what I thought. Love the houses from the 16 and 1700’s in NE.  Cannot get this font any bigger for some reason.

Very nice, like the room design and everything in this space; especially like the neutral colors!

Love the stairway area the most.  Like the chandelier & openness of the room with lots of natural light.  Something about the stone wall I don't care for, maybe it's "too much" stone wall.

@ScenicMaine  I agree, I do really like the stairway... I could live with the lighting fixture, but don't really love it... I do like the airy quality of the room and while I really like the stone wall, I agree, it is lacking something... Maybe a substantial mantle would help... It's also odd that the fireplace appears to be a bit off center and perhaps too close on the one side to the opening leading into another room... Regardless, with a few warmer and more comfortable looking pieces of furniture, I'm sure I could adapt...
