To balance this beautiful stone fireplace reaching 20 feet high in the family room, we designed built-in bookshelves on either side, where there were previously voids. It softened the massive footprint, and provided shelves to display whimsical accessories. The bookcase was designed with lighting that provided a soft glow to the room in the evening and incorporated the natural light from the windows at the top. A unique entertainment unit in rich wood tones, resided next to this area for the functionality, without distraction.
