The Warmth of Wood
Fir, fireplace and vaulted ceiling make for a cozy room.
This gleaming living room exhibits the beauty and warmth of skillfully used wood. Architect Stephen Blatt of Portland, Maine designed this dramatic space, featuring a barrel vaulted ceiling. Fir is the wood of choice. With unusual fenestration, the room is spacious, warm and inviting. Cove lighting adds warmth and brilliance to the ceiling while a field stone fireplace faced with slate contrasts with the warmth of the wood. A delightful place to be on a frosty winter day.
