A fireplace constructed of antique brick anchors the 440-square-foot space. For drama, a red metal star hangs above the mantel. "The star really pulled this room together," says Linda. "It's the icing on the cake."
Above, second-story dormer windows bring in overhead light, enhancing the cozy feel. The living room opens to the upstairs gallery space, where four Doric columns constructed of salvaged heart pine command attention. "They are powerful pieces of the architectural puzzle," Linda says.
