The Patterson family constructed an impressive stone fireplace in the basement in 1970. Visually it was very heavy and had a larger footprint than we wanted, so we gave it a makeover. We decided to match the look of the fireplace upstairs since they are stacked on top of one another. You can see both from the basement stairs and so we wanted to have a single, unified look from top to bottom. We used FLOR tiles to soften up the space since this will be the main play area for our son. The vintage tulip table serves as a wonderful space to play games, eat a meal, or get a little bit of work done while the little one plays.
When we moved in there was a simple globe light above the fireplace, however the Patterson daughters showed us a picture of the pendant that their parents installed back in the 70s. We weren’t able to find that exact fixture, however we did find a gorgeous three tiered pendant that was similar.
The basement is an ongoing project. Stay tuned for updates on the TV area, the two bedrooms, bath, and laundry room.
