    I couldn't agree more. I know you are a design profession and, therefore, charge for your services, but could I ask your opinion? Do you think this tile would be too much of a good thing for a f/p that is probably 8' wide by 18-20' tall (a 2 story front room with vaulted ceilings)? We would probably use a more substantial mantel, including side columns, helping to break up some of the enormity of the space. For the hearth, we would probably try to find an equally dramatic, but not too busy, solid piece of granite/marble. If you are willing, I could attach a photo of the current f/p.

    With your space opening up to the 2nd floor, the fireplace is a focal point from multiple vantage points so it needs to have prominence. This tile has so much depth and variation it catches the light in so many ways that it would have a lot of visual interest without being heavy. I agree the mantle will need to be somewhat substantial to maintain proportions, but I feel it would be stunning.

    The floors are clear maple with a natural finish which has less distinctive grain pattern than oak. The shelving is teak with a natural finish. I added the teak to give more interest, depth and warmth with the distinctive grain pattern to contrast and balance with the bronzed ceramic tile on the fireplace surround.

    The entire length of the top shelf is 10'-5". It overhangs on the right 10". The left side is 48".

    I did not provide the window treatments for this project. However, Kravet has similar hardware that is available through the trade.

    I did not source the drapes so I do not have the color of the silk fabric.
