Something for Everyone!
Whether your taste is rustic or refined . . . casual or formal . . . sleek and chic . . . or ultra unique . . . the fireplace hearth ideas profiled in upcoming issues will cover it all. In addition, each design idea or project includes a link to the architect, designer, builder, or craftsman's website to give you an opportunity to learn more about the featured design.
Our Fireplace Design Idea e-newsletter encompasses a wide range of budgets, as well. From relatively simple and inexpensive projects for do-it-yourselfers to elaborate designs worthy of the
Gilded Age, there is some-
thing here for nearly everyone.
Material choices and options are also considered to give you the look and feel you are seeking without the expense or cost normally associated with it. For example, the "brick" fireplace design pictured below is not crafted from brick, at all -- despite its very realistic appearance. Rather, it is made of stucco and given a faux finish to make it look like antique brick!
This Fireplace Design Idea, As Well As Those That Follow,
Will Be Featured In Upcoming Issues!
Pictured at right is what appears to
be a magnificent antique fireplace surround and overmantel mirror from the Victorian era. In reality, it is a superbly crafted 1870s Renaissance Revival reproduction by one of to-

pearance -- is a present-day incar-

tailed carving on both the mantel
legs and the richly paneled overman-
The highly unusual but equally colorful fireplace design pictured at right fea-
tures a completely tiled surround with Egyptian motifs -- sure to stand out
in any room!
Equally unusual but colorful is the
tiled firebox pictured below. The tiles feature an intricate marigold motif.
If a rustic stone fireplace design is more your style, you have a multi-
tude of options to make it uniquely your own. In the example pictured
at right and below, the homeowner incorporated a distinctive circular mosaic of small stones in the cen-
ter of the facing above the wood mantel shelf.
On the opposite end of the design spectrum is the highly formal composi-
tion pictured below. Looking like something out of The Great Gatsby, it is one of several extraordinary fireplace designs in a monumental home de-
signed by a present-day architectural firm in the Atlanta area!
In stark contrast to the fireplace above is the contemporary fireplace de-
sign pictured below. Set against a plain white backdrop, this example fea-
tures three roughly textured pieces of stone that form a roughly triangular shape around the perimeter of the firebox opening.
And finally, if what you have in mind is ultra unique, the French design pic-
tured below is hard to beat!
