With an eclectic style, this busy professional couple has a desire to entertain with a traditional formal living room. Their tastes are a casual sophistication with fun colours and serious traditionalism. They desire formalized living spaces, coffered ceilings, integrated home technology and natural patterns. Objects from travels, existing artwork and furniture, plus heirloom pieces need to be integrated into the design.
The focal point of the room is the custom mantle design and hearth. With black-walnut inlay, American walnut flooring, Calcutta marble hearth and herringbone tile, the fireplace is detailed and flanked with built-in millwork. The artwork is featured predominantly with accent lighting.
