The tile used is an emperador dark marble. It is actually a 6"x12" liner. I liked the texture it created with the alternating high and low set tile.

Can you tell me a brand name or source for this tile? Thanks!

Where are these chairs from? They are a nice blend of traditional but clean lines.

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond, I didn't see your question until just now. These are CR Laine chairs. They can be purchased through an interior designer.

Sorry it has taken so long to respond to your question. This is a standard sized fireplace. I don't have the dimensions at my fingertips. Thanks again.

Does the crown moulding at the top of each column extend out beyond the mantle?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Kathleen Ramsey, Allied ASID
Ddarby, I am not sure where you are referring to. The crown does extend beyond the mantle at the very top on the sides, it also is raised and comes a bit forward into the room. This adds dimension to the fireplace surround. I hope this answers your question.

Where can I get the fabric for the pillow? - I LOVE that fabric on the pillow and want to find it if possible to use as the jumping off point for the colors and style in my family room. I would GREATLY appreciate your information! It's just perfect!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Kathleen Ramsey, Allied ASID
Thanks so much for asking. The pillow fabric is a fabric from a custom line of upholstered funiture I carry. It is Norwalk fabric. The fabric has wonderful warm colors, gray, browns, rust and a golden yellow. It would be a great jumping off point for creating a space. I would be happy to order a bit for you. Feel free to email me.

Thank you so much for your kind offer! I plan to take you up on it, and just sent you an e-mail. I'm so excited to be able to have this fabric in my home! Thanks again :)

What is the paint color of the mantle?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Kathleen Ramsey, Allied ASID
This color is Sherwin Williams Black Fox. I specified a satin sheen on this. It is also an oil based paint. Thanks for asking!

Beautiful project!

As a fireplace nerd, I'd like to mention that latex paints handle the heat around fireplaces better than oil paints do (oils tend to yellow with time), although I doubt the see-through fireplace above produces a significant amount of heat and I suspect the dark color would be unaffected anyway. Just FYI. : )

Tile or stone around FP face? - The texture of the face with the smooth wood trim surface is really beautiful. What gives the stone or tile the raised effect?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Kathleen Ramsey, Allied ASID
The tile has raised and lowered pieces. This is an emperador dark marble trim piece that I stacked for the textural effect.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Painted Fireplace Mantels Add Pizzazz
A color like Sherwin-Williams' Otter adds warmth in a large room. Small tiles used in the fireplace make the surround pop, and rooms with vaulted ceilings feel cozier.
Heather Freeman Design Co. added this to 10 New Looks for Fireplaces in Older Homes
I like the gray tones used in this tile. The mantel was painted in one of the darker hues, making it a bit more dramatic than if it had been painted lighter. The artwork and accessories are kept simple and neutral.
