Fireplace Design Above By Architect Peter Marino
(tiles set inside a French limestone mantelpiece)


Whether building a new fireplace for your home, or working with an exist-
ing  design,  it doesn't necessarily require a large budget to get a distinc-
tive look that is uniquely your own.   To the contrary, a small quantity of simple and inexpensive building materials can fairly easily be assembled to create an attractive mantel and surround.      When combined with a few accessory items -- in conjunction with a little creativity -- your fireplace surround design can become an eye-catching focal  point  that  makes  a dramatic design statement, such as those  shown  in  the  examples  pic-
tured here.

If you have a larger budget with which to work, but still  wish  to  control your  expenses  without  sacrificing  quality  or architectural integrity, the fireplace surround design idea that follows may be right for you. A striking Great Room hearth within a Carpenter Gothic cottage,  it was designed by architect Sean O'Kane of Ridgefield, Connecticut, USA.     A massive floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround design with a commanding presence,  the  ar-
chitect, nonetheless,  was able to significantly reduce costs by minimizing the number of stones used  --  and the expense of a stone mason  --  by strategically embedding each stone in the mostly  plaster  or  stucco  sur-
round.   More savings were realized because it didn't require the additional structural support that would likely  have  been  necessary  with  a  much heavier all natural stone surround.

A finely crafted wood mantel shelf supported by corbels,  or brackets,  fol-
lows the curve of the chimneypiece to break up the massing and adds both visual and architectural interest to the overall design.    The interior of the firebox  is  lined  with  firebrick  in  an elegant herringbone pattern for even more visual and architectural interest!

The fireplace surround design ideas provided up to  this  point  reflect,  at least in part, budgetary considerations to keep in mind when planning your special fire space. However, the stunning design pictured below was clear-
ly not restricted by budgetary constraints!

With a beautifully book-marked,  i.e., matching end pieces,  onyx fireplace surround,  this spectacular one-of-a-kind outdoor hearth was designed by Landry Design Group, based in Los Angeles, California, USA.
