Below is an interior remodeling of a home I did a couple of years ago. The house was a classic 1950's Ranch - enclosed spaces, dark, uninviting. As part of the remodeling we opened things up, brought in more natural light, and added a few more traditional details to the living room and other spaces.
The Living Room was the one large space in the house. It was actually uncomfortably long which made planning an intimate furniture arrangement difficult. So on with the Inglenook idea. Think of an inglenook as a cozy kind of alcove space; which is exactly what we created. See the pictures below.
All in all we were successful in creating the type of space our client was looking for - Simple, Unique and Elegant.
