We are looking for design ideas for our family room. The family room is open to the kitchen. The room has 3 large glass sliding doors, large windows and vaulted ceilings with sky lights. It's very bright and sunny. This is a large room with space for a breakfast counter. There are large ceramic tiles throughout the family room and kitchen. The family room is painted in light browns and creams and the kitchen is light wood cabinets, black back splash & counters and dark orange/red walls.
The room is in great shape and doesn't need new floors or blinds.
We want this space to be a very comfortable place to hang out and talk, read, watch movies, etc. We do not have children, but have a large dog that is allowed on the couch and sheds like it's his job. We have modern tastes and want this room to reflect that, but to also be warm/cozy. We wouldn't mind adding a standalone fireplace in this room. There has to be space for a television. We are looking for full design on the room including floor covers, furniture, art, accessories, etc.
We don't want to change the floors or blinds or make any structural changes.
The most important this for us is that this room is modern, but comfortable and warm. The room is a good size and right now it feels like we're wasting lots of space as a pathway to the backyard, we'd love to see that space put to better use. There is a very pretty view from both the windows and the corner sliding doors that it would be great to take better advantage of.
We specifically want the design of the room to include: breakfast counter, wall mounted TV, and a standalone fireplace (i.e., biofuel).
