Sometimes people think minimalist modern design has to look a very certain way.  You see it in art galleries and in the pages of purist modern design magazines — stark white walls, perfectly clean lines, and no space for clutter, children or let’s face it, life!  We love this month’s installation because it bucks that whole idea that clean lines only belong in certain spaces and indeed in certain regions.

This month we go to the north woods of Minnesota, where the air is clean, the mosquitoes are thick, and nothing beats a roaring fire on a cold winter’s day.  Traditional and Modern styles seamlessly converge as the Trisore 100H’s clean lines are framed and anchored by the warmth and beauty of a timeless stone hearth.

Special thanks to All Seasons Fireplace for their beautiful job on the installation.

This from All Seasons Fireplace in Minnesota: “The homeowners loved the original wood burning fireplace, but their contractor suggested that cutting and carrying wood on a daily basis would get old fast, even with four boys at home to help. They wanted to maintain the large viewing area that the wood burning fireplace allowed, so this Trisore 100H gas fireplace model from European Home was the perfect choice for the room.”
