The parlor previously had an old fireplace with a window on the right side, which created a room that lacked symmetry. The old fireplace was replaced with a new ventless gas fireplace, and second window was added to make the room feel more balanced. The parlor's fireplace now includes a Cincinnati mantel from a local salvage company and locally-made tiles in the same navy blue as the trim. “Previously the fireplace was not functional,” says project manager Dan Faires. “We added this gas fireplace that warms the space and adds ambiance, a nice asset for this parlor.”
A black ventless gas fireplace was made more dramatic with a whitewashed porcelain tile façade in a brick pattern that spans from the floor almost all the way to the ceiling for a clean and modern look. A flat-screen TV with art mode that allows viewing of beautiful works of art placed above the fireplace has a customizable walnut frame that adheres with magnets and helps the TV blend with the rest of the room's decor.
