Today we are excited to share the living room of the Morgan Farmhouse! We can’t get enough of the beams! They are throughout the entire main level. They are purely aesthetic but we wanted them to have the feel of being part of the original house. The living room is right off of the entry so we wanted it to be a nice area for gathering and entertaining and keep the tv watching for the basement family room. Clean, simple and sophisticated was the style we were going for. A warm traditional vintage coffee table mixed with the modern white sofa, rustic beams, antiqued mirror all tied together with the clean lined pre cast fireplace.
We love using precast fireplace surrounds in a lot of our projects and Stone Mountain Castings is our main go to! They have great stock surrounds, but also can make any custom surround your heart can dream of. They are so talented! We love the texture and traditional feel they bring to a space, but in this case some modern lines.
Stone Mountain Castings is not only a great vendor to work with in the home building business, but they go above and beyond to help those in need! We love sharing what amazing things the people we love to work with are up to. They have started a non profit organization called With HeART Foundation.
With HeART Foundation’s Mission:
Contributing assistance to the poverty stricken artisans around the world to help achieve a lasting increase in their quality of life. People who are willing to learn and work in order to provide a better lifestyle for themselves, but only lack the access to opportunities and resources. In doing so we take their children from having to live and sell on the city streets and put them into schools to gain an education and have the childhood that they deserve. We teach occupational trades and skills predominantly relating to craftsmanship, offering a chance for these individuals to utilize artistic skills in order to create authentic pieces of work in which they can sell for a living. Furthermore, With HeART offers hands-on assistance in providing tools, building local storefronts and shops, and the research and development of products.
Our goal is to use their local handcrafted skills or folk treasures as their means to a better life so they can continue to teach the arts to their children, not losing the culture and traditions of their ancestors.
