A country cottage with vaulted ceilings and beams feels open and light but not cold or unwelcoming. Funky painting techniques offer the room a cool and connected vibe while a variety of seating areas gives the room a relaxed tone. Cutout windows, a photo wall display and rustic lighting take away any stuffiness and make the space feel family-oriented.
