Between the brass library lights, quartz fireplace surround, and stunning white oak built-ins, we’d be hard pressed to pick our favorite element of this living room design. Together, they create a warm and inviting space for our homeowners to sit back on the couch, entertain family, read a good book or chat with a friend. So much thought went into the composition of this space, so allow us to break it down for you.
Library lights over the built in’s give the display a pop of warmth, while also adding hints of class and character. Our trim carpenters built a raised casing around the base of the lights to make them feel even more intentional and built-in. When on, they add the a cozy glow to the overall ambience of the room.
Combining multiple trim pieces into a single mantle is an affordable way to make a major statement in your living room. In the White Birch project, the mantle was used to create depth and architectural detail to an otherwise simple backdrop. To add contrast, we selected a medium-toned gray quartz inlay. We can’t help but think how stunning this will be with stockings at Christmastime!
To complement the floor, we chose whitewashed white oak built-ins to frame the fireplace. The warm wood gave us a neutral backdrop to display a curated mix of antiques, found objects and books. Pops of brass knobs along the base cabinets finished the look. Shop the items below!
