In the living room Joanna redesigned the hearth and added modern concrete elements. The fireplace brick was repaired and painted white to make a clean and simple statement in the room. The light fixture (Shades of Light) over the coffee table added to the modern style of the home. On the back wall the client requested a work space and pantry area, so Joanna creatively added both of these elements near the back of the living space.
A mirror placed above fireplace is a great idea to add light & give the feel of a larger room. Placement of mirror is very important though. The tilt of mirror needs to be just right to get the right reflection.
The living room has a fireplace and I enjoy decorating the mantle to reflect the current season.
