Reimagined living room

Upgrade basics. Satterfield created a credenza-like piece by mounting Ikea kitchen cabinets about 8 inches above the floor. She topped them with plywood, and tacked leather pulls on the doors.

Tap all eras. Mix items from different periods, Satterfield says, to avoid a stiff, museum-perfect setting. Leaning toward classic colors and materials—gray, black, wood, and leather—also helps.

Define, don’t divide. The three-sided fireplace is a late-1950s concept that still works today, separating the living and dining rooms while leaving the spaces open. Satterfield updated the fireplace with a wide concrete hearth, which protects the floor from sparks and adds an industrial edge.
