The custom fireplace surround features a rough mantle salvaged from an old historic building in Georgia, and hand-painted tiles in the traditional Swedish style, commissioned by the owner. The hearth stone came from a demolished French chateau.
The living room has walnut built-in cabinets housing home theater equipment over a border of black river rock which turns into a black granite plinth under the fireplace which is rimmed with luminescent tile.
