If you know me, you know my infatuation with rotating furniture throughout my home seasonally. I can’t ever just settle on a single living room design, especially since I have an open concept kitchen/living room design.
I can’t ever just be satisfied with my home for longer than a few months, so I’ve found a way to buy pieces that are versatile enough to rotate from the bedrooms, to the living room, to the TV room, and entry way.
Open Concept Kitchen/Living Room Ideas
An open concept kitchen/living room area can be configured in so many different ways, so I though it would be fun to see how other people decorate their open concept homes.
Megan Markle’s LA Home
When Megan Markle, now Duchess of Sussex and a princess of the United Kingdom, first got her acting part in Suits in 2011, she was married to Trevor Engelson and they rented this charming Colonial-style home in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood – a stone’s throw from downtown Hollywood.
Though it was necessary for her to live nine months of the year in Toronto while filming, this is where she would return between filming and where she called home until her divorce in 2013
Scott Disick’s Remodel
Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s Scott Disick now has his own spin-off on E!, Flip it Like Disick, and has recently put this example of his new house flipping business on the market, listed at $6.89 million.
Built in 1973 and undergoing a major remodel in 2007, Disick did an update that brought the two-story house into the 21st century.
Having come up with several style signatures that he enjoys in his own home, Scott has used white marble on counters and walls, which in an interview with Architectural Digest, said was classic and would never go out of style.
Disick also uses glass pocket doors that recede into the walls, making a seamless transition to outdoor living areas.
Two other of his hallmark-design ideas are to recess large televisions flush with the wall and to make use of the under-stair space for wine storage.
He has brought these features into this 5,663-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bath contemporary farmhouse and has used reclaimed wood in a pool pavilion as an entertainment lounge area for the infinity-edge pool, spa and outdoor cooking area.
Taking full advantage of its 1.33-acre site, the house is filled with windows, light and views of lush greenery.
Special features include the large open chef’s kitchen and two large master suites.
Jennifer Lawrence’s Manhattan Penthouse
Jennifer Lawrence could afford any living accommodations she wanted by 201 and she picked a glamorous duplex penthouse on New York’s Upper East Side at the top of The Laurel, a 30-story condominium.
Aside from its stunning interior and views to die for, its 3,000-square-foot, two-floor outdoor terraces encompass all one could ask for gracious entertaining including an outdoor kitchen, fireplace with pergola, built-in pingpong table and amazing views of the city and Hudson River.
The 4,073-square-foot apartment has three bedrooms, five baths and is filled with light through walls of glass.
The formal living and dining room is surrounded by stunning city views and the eat-in chef’s kitchen has everything for the serious cook.
