Santa Barbara Spanish Fireplace rustic-living-room
 

Santa Barbara Spanish Fireplace

This very, very small home: less than 1000 sq. ft, was built for a bachelor who had lived on his boat for many years. This stucco fireplace was framed and plastered in place, with custom upholstery added. The lighting and firescreen are custom wrought iron fixtures The walls are custom faux finished for warmth. Handmade terra cotta tiles are handwaxed in a dark wax finish, with a handknotted rug. Built by Droney Construction

These throw pillows were made custom for the job. The owner picked the fabric, and we had them made.

The entire fireplace is made from plaster, and the cushions have custom upholstered seats and pillows. The fireplace doors were custom made by a local wrought iron craftsman especially for the job.

The paint in this entire house was made up entirely by the artisan on the job. We selected the painter's tints, and mixed it up like an artist's palette. This is a faux finish, so there are several colors on top of colors.

This floor material: terr cotta, was custom made by Quarry Resources in Santa Barbara. We had it waxed with a brown wax to age it.

The paint on this wall was painted in faux by an artist, who mixed the many colors himself with his artist tints.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to The Right Built-ins for Your Fireplace
What: If storage or display isn't useful to you, how about some extra seating? And again, don't forget the wood for your wood-burning fireplace.How: Instead of using wood for the seats, the same stucco as the fireplace surround was continued to create benches with angled backs, and custom cushions were made for the top. Wood for burning is nestled below the fireplace. Can't get anymore convenient than that!Style: Using stucco for the benches was a great choice to create a seamless look with the style of the fireplace surround.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Design Features That Bring Spanish Flavor to a Kitchen
8. A fireplace. If you have the room in your kitchen, consider a cozy Spanish-style fireplace with banco seating and space for wood storage.
