The Thicket

The living and reading areas are connected by a wood stove. Corner windows differentiate the light, view and space.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"My clients use the woodstove all the time," Pirzio-Biroli says. "This is a good example of where the more public areas meet a more private space, a comfortable reading area." The line between the two is demarcated by where the hardwood meets the tight, commercial-grade Berber carpet. Also, this calm, private space has a lower ceiling and thus a cozier feeling.The floors are oak.Tip: If you like variation in your flooring, don't splurge on a higher grade. "Oak comes in different grades. We like to install the lower grades, because they have more life in them, whereas the higher grades are very consistent," Pirzio-Biroli says.

The windows are commercial-grade aluminum, and the sills are simple maple. The fir and beech doors throughout the house are also commercial grade. "We use commercial grade a lot; commercial grade means greater resistance and a simpler aesthetic; it is not as gimmicky as a lot of residential products," Pirzio-Biroli explains.
