Retro Living Room
Different textures combine for visual interest.
This 1970s home on Calgary's Lake Bonavista was renovated into a contemporary space that maintained the integrity of the original architecture. The sunken living room shows the house's retro personality. Design firm McIntyre Bills added a flamed granite slab to the original stonework of the fireplace, creating a juxtaposition of different textures. The smooth hardwood and shag rug also add to the play on texture.
