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.
This square, blocky design feels almost like a blank canvas. With its neutral color palette and straight lines, it`s easy to think of this fireplace as too plain, but a closer look reveals subtle details that complement any modern home. For instance, the curved stone of the façade softens the hard edges and gently radiates heat throughout a room. The small hearth in front evokes memories of sitting a bit too close to the fire with a warm drink on cold nights. It can set the stage for a large, show-stopping piece of art or holiday-specific decorations. The simplicity and functionality of this fireplace are ultimately its greatest features, and it will figure beautifully and seamlessly into just about any home.
