Many holiday mantels might sport a greenery garland, stockings and a wreath, but David Winston wanted to do something different, seasonal but interesting beyond that. The bas-relief panel custom made for the recessed niche above this fireplace is like an aerial view of a landscape, with mosses and Mahonia forming hills and valleys. Sculptural Coulter pine cones become an unconventional garland. Hall wanted an artistic way to store plenty of wood for the fire and give the entire room an earthy feel, while still allowing light to filter in from the windows. He refers to the fireplace vignette as “a stylized woodland.”
