A Light and Airy Hearth

House Beautiful Magazine features a A Light and Airy Swedish-Style Cottage.
"It's young, light, and happy," says designer Alexandra Angle of this Americana-meets-Swedish cottage home in Venice, California. She brightened up the formerly dark house by redoing a hearth in colorful tiles, adding beadboard to the walls, and using plenty of cheery patterns throughout.

"It was inspired by antique Swedish tile stoves. There was just a plain firebox there, and I came up with the idea of tiling the wall with antique Portuguese tiles. I took them all the way up to make it more of a focal point," explains Angle.

Ventless Fireplaces are a great way to spruce up your decorating without the costly and timely process of remodeling a brick hearth and chimney.  No electricity, no gas, no flue required.  www.hearthcabinet.com
