An unused formal dining room is converted into a warm, cozy hearth room.
The fireplace was clad in real stacked ledgestone with a hand-hewn rustic beam mantle. There is no hearth to accommodate both the small size of the room, and to add a bit of a modern touch. Storage flanks the fireplace in the form of white painted cabinetry with stained wood tops, and rustic frameless shelving with recessed LED lighting on dimmers.
The ceiling was painted a dark beige, adding to the drama and height of the room.
The clients’ navy sofa was paired with skirted swivel rockers in a modern patterned fabric. A natural-fiber geometric rug anchors the conversation area. Two raw teak C-tables can move throughout the space. A rustic wood and iron console table faces the foyer.
Both entries to the room were enlarged and framed with faux wooden beams. Additional lighting on dimmer switches was also added.
