Cottage details make the difference eclectic-living-room

Cottage details make the difference

This formerly blank wall comes to life with a direct vent fireplace and TV cabinet. The simple, cottage-style details with tongue-and-groove paneling make this arrangement feel comfortable in this cozy living room space. By setting the television to the side (instead of over the fireplace, which is common), the TV is at a very comfortable viewing height.The arched fireplace surround is finished with river-washed noce travertine marble.The hearth is raised about 6" so the fire can be seen across the room from the kitchen. There is a drawer under the television for storing DVDs and videotapes.

- you can barely see the door casing at the left edge of the photo, but it is a doorway leading to a bedroom. Thank you for your interest.

This is a Martin (now Monessen/Majestic) 500DVB direct vent gas fireplace.

You can see the current model here:

Don't get confused by the nomenclature on the Majestic website. The model they call a 42" fireplace has a 36" wide viewing area, the 36" model has a 32" viewing area, the 33" has a 30" viewing area.

The walls were painted before we installed this fireplace and entertainment system, so I don't know, but I'll be glad to check with the homeowners to see if they remember.

The washed travertine tiles on the sides of the 36" wide fireplace are 6" wide, making the mantel opening 48" wide. The legs of the mantel are about 9" wide, with 2" wide stiles and a 5" wide center panel.

This whole arrangement was custom-built, but if you were looking for something "off-the-shelf", this mantel has some similar proportions:

Let me know if there is anything else I can answer for you.

Yes, this was totally custom.

I designed it and we worked with a local cabinet shop to build the mantel & entertainment cabinet.

Here's what that wall looked like before:
