Suzanne Dimma's Old Living Room
Create a focal point with a simple fireplace.
"One of the best things I did in my old row house was to install this simple fireplace with its limestone surround," says House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma. "I designed it with a sense of verticality, to feel elegant. Because the home was a rowhouse, the fireplace had to be built out from the wall between the living room and kitchen. Most of my furniture was flea market finds that I had reupholstered and slipcovered."
