Designing for Warmth: Fireplaces

Photography by Elisif Brandon

A fireplace doesn’t need to look old-fashioned to be warm and cozy.  We designed this electric fireplace with a purple glass tile surround and a quartz top that sits below a television in a den/guest room in a downtown Boston condominium. The glass tile adds a bit of sparkle and color, and the fireplace adds literal warmth as well as visual warmth.  The wall sculpture to the left is actually the handle to pull down the murphy bed when the room serves as a guest room.  The comfy sofa and soft fuzzy throw add to the cozy vibe.  It’s one of the smallest rooms in the condo, yet it’s a favorite for the owners and their guests. Even modern high-rise living spaces deserve a little old-fashioned warmth.
