This project was a challenge as the client wanted to keep the existing fireplace and flooring. Not only was the fireplace stone not my first choice; the fireplace in the room was not even centered on the wall! The ultimate challenge became finding a way to give the fireplace more balance and incorporate the existing finishes into the new design. With the addition of a custom hearth, mantle and shelving, we were able to visually center the fireplace on the wall. Our clients love for the outdoors inspired the use of rustic elements combined with contemporary furnishings and accessories.
