Fireside Chats

A series of images where the fireplace takes center stage.

Update 10/07- The new owners of Blass’s home made quite a few changes but left the guestroom fireplace alone. They kept the white (just made it a bright white) and the accessories are still minimal and striking. A drawing by Konstantin Kakanias rests on the mantle along side two pieces of pottery. The child’s chair is 18th century American.
