About This Project
The clients requested a cool, relaxed interior set in an open floor plan for this living room in new construction residence in Bloomfield Hills. The room needed to be buttoned up enough for formal occasions but a 'look only’ room is something the owners did not want. The decision to install the television over the fireplace gives the room greater use for the family to relax in while the pair of demi-lune consoles and mirrors above them allows the room to read still as a more formal space. A custom block cut limestone fireplace surround from Chesney’s London is the perfect complement to the home’s expansive contemporary architecture. Vanilla oak wood flooring floods the house with light underfoot and creates a fresh backdrop for curated furniture pieces, lighting, accessories and collected vintage prints. The adjacent outdoor covered porch that runs along the length of this room expands the entertaining space in the warmer months for great indoor-outdoor living.
