Possibly the most dramatic change to a living room we have done …. the old wood floors could not be salvaged, so new flooring was laid along with new texture / paint. The opening reveals the far dining area and brings this home firmly into the 21st century!
Classic painted brick fireplace with zero character …. transformed into an elegant focal point by cladding in 16×24 chiseled edge tumbled travertine. Note the stone chair rail edging around the hearth, and the small stone pencil edge accent around the firebox. An interesting fact here – this tile wall laid with no grout whatsoever, just tightly butted together to give a Roman ‘dry-fit limestone’ effect with lots of character.
