Plans on the fireplace progress.  Yes!

We have selected tile and formalized our plans for the wood column.

Wood along these line (width, stain, grain):

I love how the fireplace design will reference the 50s (the house was built in 1950) without being retro. We're basically taking the 50s paneled wood ceiling (or wall) and putting it on the chimney.

Can't wait to see this one come together. My client's can't picture it. But I see it perfectly, and it will be fab!

  1. Very cool. It's all in the details, and I think you've nailed it with this fireplace. Please share pics when it's done!


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
