This calming and beautiful second home is perfect for relaxing family time.
Creating a beautiful focal point
The Starks also credit their designer with another favourite feature: the living room
’s impressive stone fireplace. “It looks great because Susan was on-site telling the mason where each stone should go,” says Stark, who also loves how the designer made the built-ins beside the fireplace
stand out. Playing with proportions transformed them from functional to a focal point, explains Snow. “With a 23-foot-high ceiling, extra-tall windows
and doors and the visual heaviness of the fireplace, I knew the built-ins had to be taller than usual," she says.
