It is similar to a Sherwin Williams color we have called "Blonde". Very close, if not the same.

Stone installation - Was the stone installed and the casework and cabinetry installed afterward, or was the carpentry done and the stone added later?

These cabinets were custom designed and built for the client. This allows for more of an ideal look that coordinates with other cabinets and house style as well as functions most efficiently. Thank you.

I too like the look/feel of the stone. Unfortunately, I'm unaware of the installer and the final stone selection was made during the interior design phase of the project.

Unsure of final mechanical runs, but it would not be uncommon to have vents in toe spaces like this. Thank you.

I too think the stone "plays" well
with the surrounding materials. Unfortunately, the final
stone selection was made during the interior design phase of the project.

I have a large rectangular living room that is very open as well. I have a see through fireplace on one end the opens to the kitchen. on the opposite end is our television and entertainment. I have not put a permanent fixture in yet. I am having a hard time deciding how to handle two focal points at opposite ends of the room. Any suggestions?

I just love an easy question! People often think that all furniture must face the focal point. But when you have multiple focal points, face each other -- not the focal point. Here's how: Create a good conversational grouping so that the focal points are to either side of your grouping. Using swivel chairs for some of your seating pieces will allow you to turn to face either focal point. Everyone will have a view of something -- they just won't all be facing the fireplace or all facing the tv or all facing the view.

If your living room is truly huge, you may create two seating areas with their "backs" to each other. One faces the fireplace and one faces the tv. Here's a photo of one room that has two seating areas facing opposite directions.
