I have a client that want me to replicate this mantle. Was this job site made or ordered through a supplier? I am not finding the rounded piece that runs through center. Any help would be great. Thank you

Your builder could frame it out with drywall. Leave an arch or square around fireplace revealing how ever much stone you want to see.

Thank you for the compliment!

The stone we used is a "fieldstone mix". I am not sure where you are located, but in the Atlanta area the stone is fairly common, and carried at most stone yards.

You could also get a similar look with bluestone, especially if you pick out stones with a grey and brown tint.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I take it that this is a natural stone as opposed to a manufactured one?

I would definitely go with the home owner's information. If it is too dark for you, you could try a "half tone" of the color.

Providence Olive was chosen to coordinate with the drapery and is indeed darker than it appears in the photo. (Builder had a professional photographer take the photos so there was quite a bit of artificial light). The ceiling was painted to coordinate by mixing some of the Providence Olive into white, so you might want to ask your paint shop to tone it down to see if that suits you better.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Ideas for a Fireplace Facelift
Use unexpected materials. A unique fireplace does not have to be supersize or bright to make a big impact. This traditional fireplace stands out because the designer, Rodolfo Castro of Castro Design Studio, replaced the expected brick surround with fieldstone, adding more texture and variations in color tones.Castro explains the logistics: "The stone is dry stacked with mortar — the mortar is used in the back part of the stone, so it does not show. The stones are 3 inches thick, so they can be stacked like bricks in front of the firebox, which is an Isokern unit."
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Inspired Ways to Refresh Your Mantel Now
Do you collect botanical prints? Display them on the mantel. It's fine to prop art up against a wall. Fresh potted plants act as perfect bookends.

I like this -- the mantle and wall above with the rectangular moulding reminds me of ours now -- however, we have a large black metal faced firebox face because we installed a fireplace insert a few years ago to make the woodburning fireplace more efficient.
