The dull fireplace and overstuffed traditional furniture makes this family room feel outdated and claustrophobic. The high mantle makes the ceiling feel too low in such a large room. Oh. This room needs help! It needs Hornbeck Design Partners. They put in a lowered clean lined mantle and low profile furnishings. No need to raise the ceiling now! The texture of the standing stones and down lighting makes the fireplace more dramatic. The seat-height hearth seems to invite you over. The use of color and custom art by Dani Manning enliven the room. Wonderful!
