Mariemont condominium takes craftsmanship and interior design to the max
Artist Phil Smith of Cincinnati carved this mantle, all the corbels, and the hood trim in the kitchen design of this home.
Over the fireplace in this hearth room hangs a piece of wall art by Cincinnati artist Frank McElwain depicting a 5th Street scene.
This homeowner was fortunate enough to travel to Asia in the early 80s and pick up artifacts in Hong Kong, Thailand and throughout China. He now proudly displays those artifacts as part of his new home decor.
The designer who worked on this kitchen design raised the counter to the left up by an extra drawer. “By bumping it up to bar height, it’s more functional and gives space for extra storage,” she says.
A figurine made by Helen Burnett, an acquaintance these homeowners met in London, welcomes guests to pass through the curved doorways from the living room to the kitchen/hearth room area.
This cast iron fireplace cover was picked up by the couple at a flea market in Paris, and now serves as a unique kitchen backsplash.
