A gorgeous slab of charcoal marble turns a traditional fireplace into a modern focal point in this home remodeled by Watts Studio situated in Australia. Notice the hearth pad?

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.
