2018 Regional CotY Award Winner, Residential Interior Element under $30,000
The existing fireplace for this 1970s home was outdated. The clients wanted to achieve a more light and open feel. The venting was re-routed to allow for a central fireplace with symmetrical cabinets on each side. This stunningly contemporary design showcases classic lines with a modern coastal touch. The classic, high-contrast design uses smooth, dark satin ebony cabinets, with chunky open shelving. A mantle flanks the three-dimensional limestone wrapped plank tile. Adding a linear gas firebox with crushed glass rock bottom and intoxicating blue flames provides elegant warmth to this innovative gathering place.
