Simply put, stone fireplaces consist of either manufactured or natural materials. This surround renovation by the duo behind Chris loves Julia incorporates the latter. The stacked stone ledgers are strips of dark, charcoal marble glued to interlocking panels for easy installation. For drama, the fireplace goes up to the ceiling. As a result, the stunning stonework draws the eyes upward making the average sized room feel ginormous and airy. Capping off the remodel is the live-edge wood mantel that beautifully complements the textured marble.
Both decorative and functional, cozy and statement-making, a fireplace is the heart of any home. And whether you like it or not, your fireplace is the focal point of any space that it occupies. For that reason, it`s important to give your fireplace the same attention that it attracts. The look of your fireplace can elevate–or downgrade–a space, so making it beautiful is key.
