Transitional Family Room

This 1990’s Carmel home in the Brookfield neighborhood was lacking some character. The homeowners were looking for help in reflecting their personal style within their home. The current fireplace wall in this home was primarily a large expanse of drywall. The homeowners did not like that their fireplace was lost on a very large wall in their living room.


The goal was to create a focal point in their living room that results in a great first impression for their home.



The existing cabinets were modified to house all of their existing AV equipment. The original cabinets were painted a rich gray color and the bottom cabinets now have a copper-colored laser cut door insert.



The original mantel was replaced with two handcrafted rustic Colorado Lodgepole Pine mantels that help draw the eye upward and add an elegant touch of nature.

The design above the mantel mimics the design in the copper door fronts. This piece creates a much more dramatic fireplace wall for the center of the home, and is more appropriately proportioned for the large wall.


Stacked stone was used to create the base of the fireplace and the hearth. This stone gave the homeowners a great color palate to draw from for the rest of their living room space.


New floors were installed throughout the living room and first floor. Wide plank, hand scraped hardwood floors completed the warm aesthetics of the space.
