over a brick fireplace to achieve this look?
The fireplace is all brick and I wanted to make it look more contemporary with Sheetrock and adding a mantel like this?
of your fireplace construction & the firecodes in your area (where do you live?) etc., the answeer is basically, YES. The fireplace I designed in the photo is done in Venetian Plaster over sheet rock with a marble frame around the firebox opening. You can achieve the same look that way, or by cladding
cladding your fireplace with a marble, limestone, or a granite surround in this detail.
Let me know if I could be of further assistance,
