Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I like how the hearth is low to the ground and has full seating across the whole wall. Stainless looks great, how would it feel? Don't like this brick and tile combo. Prefer open shelving to cupboards.
If the floor is anything other than wood, the wood panel about the fireplace would be lovely.
Like the offset mantle.
like the iron look too!
combo of open shelving and cupboard next to fireplace a consideration.
maybe shelving in se corner with media center
seating that extends beyond hearth.
another option for extending the seating beyond the hearth
Love the sculptural element of the wood contrasting with the tile and how it is lighted.
mirror behind the shelves near fireplace???
Brick! Infinity wall, old brick in modern space.
