How did you deal with the corner edges --did you use Schluter system?

Thank you for your question. The edges are exposed travertine. I use Schluters at times but most often I specify exposed edges whether it be natural stone or porcelain/ceramic.

You might find the specific name of travertine already noted but if not the clients folder has been stored away.

Is the travertine honed or polished? Are the tiles butted so there is no grout?

A great place to search would be Houzz itself. Try typing in those idea works in the search box or create a feed on the discussion board. Good luck!

Thank you for your question, I sold the chairs to the client though a trade vendor. The fabric is custom selected as well. I am more than happy to provide a quote for you.

The original fireplace is Texas limestone. It was plastered over by concrete to smooth out the walls and then tile was applied.

Hi so sorry for the delay, I was not notified I received this question. The client's binder is in storage but I sourced it from a local tile vendor Stone Solutions in Austin. Its red glass 1x6. They are familiar with me, if you call them they will know the project. Good luck with your project!

I have a transitional theme in my townhome living room with current builders grade wood burning fireplace surround (boring white mantel, black slabs inlaid) and want to upgrade. I love the look of this fireplace and tile choices. I have travertine and marble throughout house and want to make bold statement. Additionally, I am doing a white stone surround directly infront of fireplace as seen in the attached pic. On either side of fireplace are windows and doors. Red couches, wood w/ black granite table tops and industrial rustic tables/bar. TV will be above mantel too.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here a stripe of accent tile draws the eye up and provides a strong vertical element in the room.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Less Is More: 6 Principles of Minimalist Design
One slim line of accent tile set off center is all it takes to create interest on this fireplace.
