Achieving a light and bright look isn't always easy, especially when you're nestled in the woods. Sallie used the same creamy white color palette from ceiling to floor. Instead of refinishing the floors, she created a fresh look by completely stripping them and painting the original subfloor creamy white. She also replaced exterior solid doors with glass ones. Skylights installed in the living room allow even more sunshine to filter into the space.
Each room flows freely from one to the next. The living room is made up of several seating areas that can easily be opened up when entertaining. This space is the ultimate mélange of styles. From classic wing chairs to the contemporary feel of the leather chairs, the mix keeps the area from feeling too stiff. And even though the room's dimensions are on the petite side, there's still plenty of seating.
