FLEXIBLE AMBIANCE A linear fireplace is a great addition to a family room! Fitting seamlessly into the built-in unit, the fireplace offers a cosy ambiance and warmth as needed. This particular fireplace features the new Valor HeatSmart System which actually redirects heat, reducing the surface temperature above the fireplace. This allows designers improved flexibility with materials and also allows TVs and paintings to be mounted above the fireplace without worry of heat damage.
A PERSONAL TOUCH Favourite books, collectibles from past travels and framed photos are all great ways to add a personal touch to your décor. We love how this homeowner used books in a variety of beachy colours to create a coordinated look without being too matchy! If your books don’t coordinate with your décor, you can easily recover them (visit www.MarcAndMandy.com/Books to learn how).
KEEP IT TIDY Glass and open shelves help create an open and airy feel but don’t leave many options for storage. Storage boxes and wicker baskets work together to provide plenty of storage while maintaining a tidy, clean space. Using the same simple storage boxes throughout the lower cabinets allows storage to blend in without distracting from the décor of the room.
PATTERN When choosing an accent chair, select one with an interesting pattern in neutral colours. This will give the room visual interest without having to commit to a specific colour scheme.
Recreate this great look with a few fantastic decor pieces we love:
Chair, Bassett Furniture
Whale Tale, Wayfair
Octopus Pillow, Naked Decor
Fjalla Box with Lid, IKEA
Vases, West Elm
