Autumn is the time of year that brings those beautiful blends of colors, crisp fresh air, hot apple cider, warm woolen socks, and a well-tended fire for pure comfort. The fireplace is an architectural feature that has morphed from a practical necessity into the focal point of any living room, a social necessity for every season.
At 4400 Golden Valley Road, the fireplace is the perfect accent to the clean white interior of the living room. Its central position invites everyone to gather around. Off the kitchen is a private library with warm tones and dark wood trim that enriches a second lively fire, creating an intensely comfortable private retreat.
Organic stone and custom woodwork emphasize the central hearth at 4213 Grimes Avenue. The open kitchen and adjoining living room optimize the social potential of these living spaces, as you drift from the kitchen to the living room and back again, always within reach of that comforting warmth. Carpeting insulates the living room before the downstairs walkout, and captures the radiant heat from a second hearth. Surrounded by windows, you can watch the leaves turn, the snow fall, the rain drop, and the sun go down, all with family before a grand fire.
One thing's for sure, home is where the hearth is!Posted by Paul Kaminski on
