Hi. For some reason, your question about the cabinet paint color came to me. I am a decorative painter who had commented on the cabinets, but I did not paint them. I noticed that in an earlier post, the designer noted that the paint is a custom color with a glaze.

to clarify a insert is typically made of cast iron and installs in a masonry fireplace...this appears to be a direct vent type gas appliance.

What about a sort of Gothic-style door? The attached photos are of the existing kitchen cabinetry and I'd want the dining room cabs to be similar/complementary. See the attached photo.

This is only an educated guess, because this is not my project, but it appears to be a 36" fireplace model.

By the way, when the unit is installed into a framed wall, it is a fireplace, not an insert. By definition, an insert must be installed into a woodburning fireplace.

We have ours above the fireplace (gas) and it's not a problem. We mounted it with a bracket that allows it to turn and tilt, so it's easy to see from any point in the room.

There's another really long-winded answer here on houzz.com (mine), but I'll offer the condensed version . . .
The short version is: If you can mount the TV over the fireplace where the TV doesn't get hot, then go for it.
The distance away from the fireplace opening, whether or not there is a mantel shelf between the fireplace and the TV to deflect the rising heat, and what type of fireplace it is (gas vs. wood, vented vs. unvented, etc.) all make a difference in how hot it gets up there.
At least half of the fireplaces we install have TVs over the top. That being said, it's not usually the best place to put a TV because it may be too high for comfortable viewing.

Hi Mikal, let me compliment you on the cabinets, they are gorgeous, like all other projects I saw on your website. We have replicated these cabinets but now we are struggling to find a mesh.

With khaki colored walls and tan similar colored carpet, what color should the sofas be. - This room is so elegant. Should I choose a gray blue upholstery for the two sofas or can I do a beige or tan? Is that too much tan? Ottoman and throw and pillows would be different colors. HELP!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Mood Makers: Create a Peaceful Place
Too many people make the mistake of ignoring their architecture. Use your architecture as the axis on which to create balance and symmetry. A fireplace, a bay of windows or another significant architectural element can be the center point of a seating arrangement.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Two Sofas Double the Design Possibilities
If you like the look of a pair of sofas but are afraid they seem too overwhelming, use more modern and nonskirted options to make the room feel more open — especially when the curtains reach the floor.More:Could Your Living Room Be Better Without a Sofa?Choosing the Right Sofa for Your Room6 Reasons to Float a Sofa
4. Blue built-in cabinetry in Denver. Built-ins were everywhere on Houzz this year, including in this popular living room. The blue cabinets add visual depth, but their gray undertone keeps the color scheme simple.
3. Swap your coffee table for an oversize ottoman. Large seating arrangements can feel a bit empty if there is too much distance between the sofa and coffee table. Choosing a big upholstered ottoman instead of a traditional coffee table will close that gap and add softness at the same time.
1. Display your favorite things without creating clutter. This is one of the most popular living rooms on Houzz, and the unique built-ins are a major reason. An open shelf, cabinet doors, drawers and glass doors compose the facade, but the wire mesh doors are the largest fronts. They tie the books and objects together in an uncluttered way — the mesh tones down the color but still gives us a peek inside. The feeling is open without complete transparency.
Catherine Funkhouser added this to Give That Coffee Table an Extra Shot of Style
The smaller tray here doesn’t cover up too much of this elegant ottoman’s velvet tufting, and it provides a flat surface for a vase of flowers, with room to spare for a few books and a greenery sphere. I love the pop of organic green in this room’s subdued palette.
