Hi Lori and Molly, I am sorry for the delay, I will ask and get a price for you both. Where are you located? As far as a more neutral palette, I would have to check to see what they have available. Thanks! Will get back to you. Can you email me at the website associated with this account? www. jenkinsbaer.com

I'm sorry, the stone was done by the custom builder before I was hired for the job. Beautiful though!

My clients appreciate my use of stone to focus attention upon a fireplace. Stone offers many colors, textures, sizes, and shapes, resulting in an interesting dimensional surface.

Hi, I found this at a local carpet showroom. Perhaps take this photo to a designer or your local carpet vendor. Thanks!

How hard it is it to mount the tv on the stone? Where is the wiring? - We are moving to a house with a similar fireplace. Trying to figure out where to put tv since room is mostly windows and french doors. If we don't mount the tv, chairs will have to have their backs to fireplace in order to see tv.

This was done by the builder. You can talk with a good audio visual company to see about having them help you hide the wires. There is also a remote eye that can take the place of large equipment so that you can hide it in another location. Not sure what your condition is exactly, but you could try hiding some wiring in a mantle creatively. For example, if you had a large rustic looking wooden mantle attached to the stone, you could theoretically carve out some space for the wires to be hidden. Good luck!

I agree with Elizabeth about getting an av specialist to penetrate the stone and run a wire chase to remote location to house the dvd player, amplifier, etc. This is a must and typically not that difficult. Mounting the TV to the stone is another matter. A back plate (typically PVC or plywood) should be fastened into the stone. Then opening in the backplate should expose the wiring. Now the TV is mounted to the backplate and adjusted to be parallel to the stone.

A casement that attaches to the backplate will conceal the wiring completely and make the TV look like a piece of purposeful furniture. The casement can be faux painted to match the stone or simply be an espresso stained walnut to blend into the room decor. It is worth the effort.

Try taking this photo to a local carpet source. It's so unusual they would recognize it if they have it. Good luck.

height of TV - How high is the TV hung? What is the general rule of thumb for comfortable viewing? Do you have an opinion. I love this look of the fireplace with the TV above, but is ok for watching?

It depends on the distance between the sofa and the TV. The further away it is, the less of an angle for viewing. Sometimes the mantle is just too high for comfortable viewing.

Thank you. They have an electronic eye so the media equipment can be hidden, however they don't use a Wii in this room. They have all of that set up in the lower level.

I didn't specify the stone, it was in place when I started on the job. If you like this look I'd suggest showing it to your stone mason and asking to see similar for your job.

TV above mantle, how? - Hi I was wondering how they secured the tv above the fireplace mantle onto the stone without any damage to the stone? I'm in a similar situation but with travertine stone above the mantle and we want to secure a 70" flat screen. Everyone we have come in contact with is not confident about how to do this and we don't know what to do. :/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to 12 Hot Ideas for Fireplace Facing
Stone. There are many options of stone to choose from for a fireplace facing. I love to wander at stone yards looking at all the different varieties. Stones such as fieldstone come in many shapes, colors and textures.I suggest finding the best installer you can and work with him or her to select the best stone for your fireplace. Cost: Around $4,000 to $7,000 for stone and installation.
