Today we're bringing you back to the Hollywood Hills project to show off the main living space. In the open plan, this area is just off the kitchen (which was revealed a few posts back) and makes for the perfect space to entertain guests. There's no question whether or not this house is meant for entertaining. The kitchen seamlessly transitions to the living room which is open to the adjacent dining room and bar. Like I said, perfect for parties!
The main feature in the living room, aside from the vistas beyond, is the fireplace wall. The stainless steel fireplace surround is set off using a 12 x 24 gray porcelain field tile and combining it with stripes of a stainless steel accent tile. Originally, the owner wanted to completely cover the wall using only the shiny accent tile but we talked them out of that and instead toned it down and paired it with a nice neutral tile. We're both happy with that decision! Like really, really happy! The wide plank oak floors were already down but the stain color was adjusted to ground the space and bring cohesiveness. The stain color is light, highlighting the grain and knots inherent in Oak.
The simplicity of the dining room is what we find so appealing. There's more than enough things going on in this room to keep your eyes interested (view, view, view!) Did you even notice the table?! It's more casual than a lot of dining rooms but that's the vibe of the house. It's open, comfortable, and begging for a party! The bar is just adjacent to make sure that the drinks stay flowing... (Pretty sure this post is being influenced by Ellie Goulding on the stereo!) Ok, wait, the bar. There's a durable quartz counter top, a wine fridge below, and more stainless steel accent tile used for a back splash. In layman's terms, party, bubbly, photo op! Really, this space is an entertainers dream. Take a look at the photos and let us know what you think. Party house?
