Work with the Fireplace

A lot of times the fireplace is the focal point of the room, or the house for that matter. In this particular Washington D.C. home it runs through all 4 floors. They did a really nice job embracing the fireplace here. It's always going to make a statement so work with it not against it. The size and feel of the archway between the two rooms along with the taller wainscot and detailed trim molding help to soften the mass of the fireplace. The open feel of the hallway and this sitting room is perfect and allows great natural light. I also like the transition of hardwood to blue stone flooring.
