Adara Noya Fireplace January 17th, 2018
Art form. This living room artistically combines the television and fireplace on one wall. The television is offset by the hearth for balance while the streamlined fireplace almost disappears under the recessed cavity when it's not on. A surround like this can easily be customized into full-overlay doors for extra living room storage.

When it comes to fireboxes homeowners seem to be gravitating to fire ribbons — gas flames that are wide but shallow appearing literally as ribbons of fire. The look is contemporary but minimalist with no faux logs. Instead flames rise from rock sand or glass. The idea isn’t to provide the illusion of a wood-burning fireplace just to add the warmth and beauty of a flickering flame.

Consider having your screen mounted on the wall instead of perched on top of a cabinet. This way the screen will be less obvious and the space can be used like a typical living room with the option of enjoying a superior home cinema experience when you have a film to watch.

Choose 7.1 surround sound. The latest in surround-sound technology requires eight separate audio channels to truly immerse viewers in the film. But it can be difficult to decide whether you should try to disguise the speakers or make them a feature of the room. Plenty of speaker manufacturers make devices that both sound good and look beautiful. Wood paneling offers a great combination of acoustics and aesthetics. Remember to check the wiring options when looking to make a purchase — no matter how good the speakers look a tangle of cables is always a turn-off.

Let’s face it — media rooms can quickly become a mess of tangled cords and unsightly technology despite our best intentions. Streamline your space with media storage and accessories to hide electronics and organize necessities.

This works especially well if some of the pieces are as large or even larger than the TV. The unusual square piece in the upper left draws attention away from the TV and the other little pieces keep the eye moving around.

It saves you time- Without all of those "where is that DVD?" scrambles and constant media sorting you can now finally take the time to find out why your best friend recommended the movie Gandhi to you over 10 years ago.

I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.

Quite interestingly the term is derived from the French word 'ottomane' which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian 'Ottomano' Medieval Latin 'Ottomanus' Medieval Greek 'Othomanoia' from Arabic 'Utmani'. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
