    The mantel and support brackets were constructed by a local craftsman out of reclaimed lumber.

    What type of wood is the mantel? Can I order it online??

    I'm not sure of the species of wood or the exact finish, it was custom designed for this project. The builder supplied the unfinished product and we had a local artist stain and distress the mantel to our specifications. Good luck with your search!

    This beautiful iron set was sourced privately by the homeowner.

    There isn't a way to find out where they got it.

    Thank you for your question, we actually had this iron fireplace screen made by a local artist. Bruce came up with the design and the artist created it for us, here's the link to his website: http://brianfleo.com/

    Our client moved into this home after it was already constructed. The original architect is unknown.

    Greetings! The brackets were set into the stonework, and the reclaimed mantel was then attached directly to them. Hope you find this helpful!

    Greetings! This mantel is a custom piece. Our suggestion if you are looking for something similar would be to research reclaimed lumber suppliers in your area. Best of luck!

    The corbel dimensions are approx. 6" wide x 8" high. The depth varies depending on the depth of the mantelpiece.

    Hello! Thanks for your question, unfortunately I don't have a record of this color. But we use a lot of Benjamin Moore Historical Colors so I'd recommend looking there. Good Luck!

      3. Personalize it. What’s your favorite pastime? Start there when thinking about styling your mantel. For an equestrian, this horse painting and antique trophy collection highlight a love of the sport, creating a meaningful focal point.

      Another approach is to stay symmetrical for a more traditional look. Here we have an equestrian painting flanked by a collection of trophies, equally distributed on both sides.

      Tell a story about your hobbies or occupation. I think this artwork is a classy way to showcase a riding hobby, a horse-breeding occupation or perhaps just a love of horses.

      Of course, the three-plus-one rule is just one of infinite ways to decorate a mantel. For some, more is more, and a mantel is the ideal place to proudly display a collection. Try organizing things symmetrically so your mantel feels balanced, but don't forget to layer and mix up height. A mantel display is a great opportunity to integrate new colors into your home decor too. Choose a favorite color that you weren't able to work into your home and highlight it in your mantel display. Try picking something that contrasts with your mantel, or paint your mantel to make your display stand out.

      like the stone and the wood mantle, but not the traditional decor.
