Although the fireplace is not the building’s original, a flue was in place, making installation an easy process. Michael and his team peeled back part of the finish to expose the bricks underneath, adding another industrial touch to the interior. The light, neutral colour scheme of the living room contrasts with the rich, dark floor, which is clad in engineered timber, topped with a dark oak stain.

Abbinamento - chiaroscuro Soprattutto se il pavimento è di colore scuro è interessante accentuare il contrasto con vassoi, cuscini e complementi d’arredo che richiamino la stessa nuance. In questo modo si crea uno spartito ritmico di chiari e scuri che rende l’ambiente caldo e accogliente.
