One of my favorite fireplace design ideas is to substitute colored glass crystals for the "same 'ol, same 'ol" gas log sets generally found in a gas burning fireplace. Though often used in contemporary settings, glass crystals work equally well with traditionally-designed fireplaces, as shown in the photo of the large stone surround with raised hearth pictured above.
Available in a virtually unlimited rainbow of hues, glass crystals give you an opportunity to personalize your fireplace by adding a splash of color to either match or accent the decor of your room, according to your individual tastes. In addition, a range of sizes and shapes is available to further personalize the look and feel of your hearth. There is, quite literally, something for everybody!
Dennis' Reply: Christine -- I agree that the use of glass crystals, with all the shapes, sizes and colors available today, is a great way to personalize the look and feel of your fireplace. Thanks for sharing your wonderful idea and great pics!
