In the Houston living room shown here, a pair of custom velvet sofas, an extra-large coffee table, floor-to-ceiling drapes and a sizable fiddle leaf fig plant help bring down the scale.
Bathroom in the bedroom. I love the surprise element of having a bedroom open completely to a shower. It creates a playful, intimate vibe perfect for a rental or vacation property, as in this gorgeous North Carolina carriage house.

Large rooms with high ceilings can be problematic for those wishing for a cozy atmosphere in a living room. No problem. Layer in extra-comfortable furnishings, and all of a sudden that cavernous space feels more quaint.
