Neutral Textures

A mixture of textures, from the shag area rug and stone fireplace to the smooth leather chairs, brings interest to the neutral living room.

Contrasting Styles

The fireplace is the perfect mix of rustic and contemporary. A stacked stone wall is offset by a glass and stainless steel firebox.

Cozy Dining Room

Graphic wallpaper and a patterned area rug add visual interest to the transitional dining room.

Casual yet Formal

The deep brown wood of the dining room table contrasts against the quilted white fabric of the chairs.
