What Houzz contributors are saying:
Warm retreat. This wonderfully warm and comfy living area may be compact, but there’s still plenty of space for multiple members of the family to stretch out for a nap. A U-shaped in-built lounge lines three walls of the room and provides ample room for three people (perhaps even more) to claim a spot to sink into. The custom-made seating is also key to the room’s cosy and intimate feel, which is enhanced by the use of natural materials (in particular the timber panels that line the back wall) and placement of furniture, which draws the focus to the middle of the space.
What better way to connect with your friends and family than in a snug, sunken living room – it’s the perfect place for long conversations and laughter. The room’s picture windows make the most of the gorgeous Margaret River views. Although it’s been built to fit the dimensions of the space (that’s the best thing about custom-made designs), the separate seat and back cushioning give it a casual, cosy feel – sleek bench cushions would have a different effect.
