For a modern twist on traditional style, look no further than this gorgeous hearth. With a shape reminiscent of the old-world wood-burning stoves, but with a sleekness that is as contemporary as it gets, this fireplace is a perfect complement to any home decor. In a minimalist home such as this one, the black and white stand in stark contrast with each other, but the cozy fire and the warmth it suggests keep the surroundings from seeming too harsh. This is a timeless design that will make any house feel like a lovingly curated home.
For nearly a decade Kate, an avid renovator and decorator, has been dishing out expert interior design advice on her blog Centsational Style. Here she shares how this fireplace built in the 1980s was made over with beautiful patterned cement tile. It took 34, eight-inch square tiles to get the job done with the help of 1/4 inch spaces. Before getting started she removed the original drywall mantel. After installing the new tile, she added a new wood mantel.
