Hi There !
At the end of 2022 we worked on a project with the most handy of clients. We had our own "in house" carpenter who was able to do all the painting, trim work and tile. That happens rarely and it was nice !
This project including creating a front room, perfect for entertaining a close group of friends or just finding a serene place to escape. I wanted to re-do the fireplace and paint the room dark. That's where I started. My homeowner pulled off the mantle and we boxed out the entire fireplace to then add a dark, vertically stacked tile. From there it came to paint, a darker grey, Ben Moore Iron Mountain. With the base work done, it was game on to filter in all the goods. Some new, some collected. The goal was a layered, warm, cozy spot with artistic, sentimental pieces and comfortable velvet swivels next to the fire.
Take a look at the finished front room !
