My family room has a bench similar to this..and I like the neutrals. I am not sure if I should put a couch in front of it or really dress it up like in this picture. Not sure how practical it is. Again - I like the beams.
In the master bedroom, a boat-like bow ceiling sits within a dutch gambrel roof. The antique mirror above the fireplace conceals a TV; beyond the expansive Palladian window, a small balcony faces the ocean. Curtains, walkout from master, furniture layout
