Between the brass library lights, quartz fireplace surround, and white oak built-ins, we’d be hard pressed to pick our favorite element of this living room design. It was important to the homeowners for our team to create a cozy living room for their family of five to relax and enjoy—it needed to be livable. In some cases function and design marry, when more often one tends to win over the other. This was a win in our book: The built-ins provided mom a place to decorate, while the cabinets below are great storage for the kids. This pretty but non-fussy space is perfect for our homeowners to sit back on the couch and entertain their beautiful family.
