Custom Transitional – Bettendorf, IA

Project Type: New Construction

Project Overview: Tasked with bringing to life the interior of this 3,363 square foot custom transitional home, designer Jennifer Crome of State Street Interiors and Furnishings knew leveraging timeless materials and finishes was critical to allow the overall character of the architecture to remain current for years to come.

One of the main areas of focus for Jennifer was the home’s living room. The client knew they wanted a horizontal fireplace, a hearth style that is often used for projects seeking a modern look. As the style of the home sought classic long-lasting elements, Jennifer was challenged with specifying and sourcing a horizontal fireplace that could be fused with traditional elements and blended into the rest of the home’s intended design theme.

The goal was achieved by surrounding the Cosmo Gas Fireplace, a popular linear model from Heat & Glo, with stunning transitional components - those which have both classic and modern attributes. With its clean lines and sleek configuration, the Cosmo Fireplace was the ideal choice for this mid-range home seeking a hearth model that wouldn’t overshadow the materials complimenting it.

This included a custom ledgestone surround, with the material chosen for both its complimentary coloring of blue, grey, and cream hues and also its horizontal shape that mimicked the lines of the fireplace. Flanked by “floating” custom cabinetry, a chunky mantel, and light reflective décor (including a horizontally hung mirror as a focal point and shimmering metallic accessories), Jennifer was able to deliver a space that met the client’s style goals while also giving the room a truly organic ambiance and design feature.
