The Living Room/Great Room of the Dream House.
My first thing I would like is for the living room to be attached to the kitchen. I often see people don't like this feature. One of my favorite things to do while watching a movie, is cook/work-away in the kitchen (I cannot sit and watch a movie...)
I also think the 2 connected is nice for entertaining.
Maybe a bar separating the two?
(http://www.tuscanyvillasredding.com/) I am assuming this kitchen bar looks out into the living room.
Another detail I am particular about is the flooring.
The home we were building have tile floors - since it just seems to be the best flooring material in Arizona. The dryness, the extreme heat, the sand .... tile works best.
However, our dreamhouse has wood floors. I'd prefer a darker flooring. Or something like this....
I have decided I definitely like the addition of a fireplace in the living room. It just adds a nice ambiance in the winter! My favorite type of fireplace is a stone one - like this:
I would keep our current living room furniture - because it's just right.
(love seat, ottoman, and full couch which didn't show up in this photo)
The Living room, although it is a room that gets a great deal of time spent in it, was difficult for me to pin-point my favorite features. I guess I'm more of a kitchen, shower, & backyard kind of person! ;)
