The glass doors are terrific. Where did you get them? Thx.

This was an existing 1800's brick fireplace, so we had to order custom glass doors to fit. My advice would be to consult a local contractor.

What is that dang blue? I do wish these companies had all the info. re: pics they put up. ALso, would this blue work in an 1880s room with wide pine flooring and a low, pine ceiling with pine beams, but with White Dove on the wood trim, including around the FP, and on the crown moulding? Gold sconces; pine frame on mirror…same golden pine as in the pic.

Thank you!

Is this not a fire hazard to have the wood so close to the firebox?

This was actually an existing fireplace which was part of an existing historical old home. You would have to check your local building codes if you plan on doing something similar.

Would love info on the desk as well! It is lovely...My husband and I are building a custom home and are having cabinets, shelves and file cabinets built into our home office, but still haven't found desks we like. We both love the functionality of an executive type desk, but do not like the closed-up feeling, and have been trying to find a compromise. This piece is MARVELOUS!! Would love to see a pic of the entire desk and the back side as well if you wouldn't mind. Thank you so very much!

They should. The doors are designed to keep air from going into the fireplace so I would believe it would at least help backdrafts.

Wood mantels like this are not typically attached directly to masonry.
They're attached to the Chimney Breast - which is made of framing lumber and plaster and/or drywall - surrounding the masonry.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The designers added bookcases that match the room’s honey pine woodwork and restored the wide-plank pine floors and fireplace surround. “It’s very ecologically friendly,” Susoev points out. Also, “people don’t always consider that using antiques is one of the most ecological things you can do.” More traditional home photos
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Traditional
Style Secret: Rich Wood TonesWalnut, cherry, mahogany, oak — darker wood tones rule traditional style (leave the bamboo and blond maple to another house). From walnut railings on a white staircase to cedar beams across the ceiling, it provides the warmth and coziness so essential to this look.Make it fresh: Let hardwood floors shine: don't leave them completely bare, but don't obscure them with a rug that's too big. Layer in wood furnishings that are in the same color family for a collected, yet still pulled-together, look.
Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Smooth Moves for Hardwood Floors
Salvaged wood is a great option for green flooring. With a salvaged floor you are getting true character — not fake hand scraping or nail holes. You are reusing flooring, so there's less labor and shipping involved, and no virgin lumber is used. Installing salvaged floors does often involve more labor onsite, though. Expect 10 percent to 30 percent more time spent on the job to cull unusable boards, pull stray nails, deal with wonky boards and so on. In my opinion it's worth it, though. And remember, using your purchasing power to support your local labor force is one of the most sustainable decisions you can make.
Dark wood trims with blue
