Nice.

 

I always like a large round table.

Nice light fixture - simple.

Like the open stairs too.

 

I believe with a few changes to the decor, I would enjoy this room for myself.

A great blend of light and airy yet warm and cozy.  I really like this room!

That ceiling ruins this whole room. I like all but that. Love the stone fireplace.

Oh my, I love this so much!  Some slight furniture changes, and a dose of warm color and I'd like to move in today!

I like it.  I don't care for the color of the wood ceiling in the first picture though.  It might just be the lighting because I like all the other pictures.

 

I tend to not care for that light/natural shade wood.

The room has a lot of potential, but just doesn't come together for me. The woodwork is too light. There is a lack of color and interest in the furnishings.

@stevieb  I like the brightness of the room and the modern look, but I do not like those ceilings (see them everywhere today) and I am not a fan of the open staircase.  I can see someone falling right through.

Nice room, love the stone fireplace, the room does need in my opinion a pop of color, maybe in the accessories!?

@steviebAlmost Shaker in its simplicity.  But a bit cold.

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.
