What Houzz contributors are saying:
As you can see from this angle, the grid pattern is very prominent, leaving little room for error. The stacked bond installation method is much less forgiving than the more traditional running bond installation. However, the end result is stunning and well worth the extra effort.
These clever drawers start under the fireplace and extend to one side, creating a low bench. On the other side, there's room for a cozy reading nook.
If you have modern space, make the fireplace more of a focal point by tiling it to the ceiling. More black accents show themselves in the trim around the windows. The extended rectangle of dark stone or concrete around the fireplace draws attention to the long rectangles of the room. The TV would have much more prominence if white tile framed the firebox.
