Sustainable details: Reclaimed wood mantle

Though we've wrapped up our contemporary cottage in Laguna Beach a few weeks back, there are always a few final finish details that make a home. So, we thought we'd share some recent images of the newly installed reclaimed wood mantle above the natural gas fireplace. It adds a bit of warmth and texture to the space and is the perfect size and scale for the interior of this open plan design.

The natural material enhances the minimalist aesthetic while providing visual interest, directing the eye towards the feature wall with the fireplace.

We're looking forward to the installation of another significant interior feature- a sliding glass wall system to create a sense of privacy at the office, while still allowing light to filter through to the main living space. That should be moving forward next week, and photos will soon follow!

As always, many thanks for stopping by...
