Spacious Cottage Living Room
White walls and high beams enlarge this interior.
"This sweeping view of a cottage great room shows a functional floor plan for lounging, dining and cooking in the same space," explains Duron. "Each space is defined by different lighting, textures and colours." Rustic beams draw the eye upward, making the ceiling look even higher. A peaked roof keeps the room light and airy, and ceiling fans cool the house on hot summer days.
