Beyond Mid-Century by Heather Garrett Design

Photo by Emily Johnston Anderson

While this home has a distinctively modern style with a nod toward its mid-century roots, the hardworking homeowners wanted it to have the feel of a high-end hotel experience.

Is this faux stone, as in a cultured stone? What type of paint was used?

I'd like to know the colour as well. I was looking at grey but I like the lighter shade of this compared to a few others I saw.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Garrett's custom balsam wood sculpture above the fireplace in the lounge takes center stage and diverts attention from the faux stone fireplace surround — and that's the point. She sprayed the surround with a high-gloss enamel, giving the once-multitoned surround a neutral color that brings out the fireplace and the sculpture. A supporting cast of textures and decor balances the room. Fireplace surround paint: Sherwin-Williams; fireplace fire balls: Blazing Glass; dog portrait: Heather Mattoon; sofa: Lee Industries; felted wool basket: Ronel Jordaan; aluminum side table: West Elm; velvet pillows: Kevin O'Brien Studio; teardrop lamps: Arteriors Home; rug: Safavieh
