Alcoves and Fireplace

The spaces to the sides of a typical chimney breast provide a great opportunity for built-in storage. Rarely are they straight or symmetrical so here we brought the face forward, recessing two bespoke oak units, each with bookshelves, a mirror and integrated lighting. The bold, white painted wooden mantlepiece was tailor-made, and trimmed with oiled bronze to complement the oak units. The surround and hearth were painted with Farrow and Ball’s ‘Railings’.
