Rooms blending into each other

Areas blending into each other

Our specialty is designing open plan areas but with each "room" possessing distinctive qualities that define them. In this instance, the dining room is open to the living room beyond but the design quality reinforces where the room ends. This is just one method to make areas seem larger than they are.
