This great room was in need of colour and a focal point. The fireplace being the most natural focal point, tended to feel squat and the overall wall needed some surface decoration. A new area rug, casual but colourful was the starting point for this area. Upholstery fabrics, window treatments and a new wall colour brought life to the space. An over-mantel was custom built on top of the existing mantel and moldings, lighting and artwork were added this wall, creating both a focus as well as an area to display artwork.
