What is the stone around the fireplace and how deep is that surround? It looks pretty narrow.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Tour: A Little Cottage Grows Up
Bernstein removed some walls to open up the interior but didn't try to make it fit expected floorplans. These are the original wall and ceiling panels, brightened up with a coat of Benjamin Moore "White Dove." Note the spare use of ceiling lights. "The more projects I do over time, the fewer lights I put in the ceiling," Bernstein says. "We use lights to light something — a piece of art, a table." The stairs leading up have no risers, to let in more natural light. The floor is reclaimed oak siding from an 1870s Michigan barn.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Benjamin moore white dove walks, Swiss coffee trim
Linda A added this to best
this staircase is against a wall of windows!
Cheryl added this to Fireplace Ideas
This concept is for the 2nd level--bedrooms shared space that is entered from the stairway. This might be the best place for the fireplace! In this room not on the main level which is probably going to be pretty full.
