Light and Airy Transitional

Creating a clean, almost contemporary family room, without disturbing the integrity of the architecture was a challenge for this project. The designers were involved in architectural development, material and finish selections, lighting design, space planning, and custom furniture and drapery design. The dry-stacked ledge stone fireplace creates a monumental architectural statement, as well as the inspirational character for this room. An imbedded fir beam acts as the mantel and blends perfectly with both the soft gray washed beams on the cathedral ceiling and the random planked walnut flooring. Continuing the fresh look to the furnishings, a quiet rug outlines the casual entertaining and seating area. Wood framed fireplace chairs create a cozy setting, while modern leather chairs flanking the sofa are centered to the whitewashed cocktail table. A wooden television lift with textured faux metal doors adds interest and function to this transitional room without taking away from the views.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
That stone is a special blend from one of our local suppliers. The wood beam mantle was stained to match the deeper hues in the natural stone.
