    I would like to do a similar treatment on my fireplace wall which is 11' x 20' and spoke to my granite and stone installer and they told me that the travertine slabs were too heavy to install on a vertical wall.
    How was this on done? Also, I do not see any seams.

    Not true too heavy for wall installation. I have a floor to ceiling wall of silver travertine behind my master bath tub. AND a entire fireplace wall in my Master Bedroom. Can be done. You just need the right people.

    Hello! There are 2 chandeliers in this space - One of them was an antique from A. Tyner Antiques in Atlanta, GA and the other was custom made to match.

    Typically a slab is 50 square feet (around 10' x 5').

    It varies greatly, but codes and fireplace manufacturers' installation manual will dictate how much clearance you need to combustible materials (wood), which will limit you somewhat on your minimum size.
    If you have a fireplace with a 36" or 42" wide opening, generally you'll need at least 6" of non-combustible material on each side before a mantel leg, which eventually works out to a mantel shelf about 30" wider (or more) than your fireplace opening.
    We recommend that your hearth extension (the thing on the floor in front of your fireplace) be at least as wide as the mantel shelf. Typical mantel shelf height is 52- 58" above the hearth.
    We always recommend that you sketch out the entire wall arrangement to see how your proportions work out before you make any final decisions.

    Hi Lisa,
    This wall is Silver Travertine.
  • Dora Rozet

    first of all, I visited your website and your work is amazing! wish you were in Seattle. I was wondering if this is a slab or tile travertine? I don't see any seams so was wondering who you id it. Thanks,

    Hello cabungalow. Thank you for the interest in the lamps features in this photo. While the photo may be deceiving, these are actually larger scale table lamps and were custom made from old stair railings and topped with a parchment shade.
    If you feel the creative itch, I would encourage you to go to a local salvage yard and you never know what you may find that you could turn into a one of a kind lamp for yourself!
    Best of luck!

    Fabulous idea! I recently bought a vintage animal trap and an ironsmith is making it into an awesome hanging lamp! Looks like a bird cage ... but it's not .. eek.

    Firebrick is different from common brick, about 4 1/2" x 9" x 2 1/2" thick typically (also available in "splits", 1 1/4" thick), but these appear to be split the long way (so they're 2 1/4" x 9") to create a more elegant herringbone effect. The "buff" color above is the most common, but there are other colors available: http://www.superiorclay.com/firebrick-colors.php

    the cubes are actually terry cloth towels that look like pebbles. We had them made.

    Hello George. Thank you for the interest in this fireplace mantel. It is made of limestone. I currently do not have any other information regarding vendors as the project was completed a few years ago. We have used two companies in the past such as Francois & Co. and Dracme who provide limestone fireplace products. You might have luck at one of these finding something similar!

    These cubes were purchased pre-made and the fabric is actually a terry cloth that is sewn to almost resemble little pebbles.

            8. Mix it up. Employing a bevy of design tricks, this relaxing space combines bold vertical art as a focal piece against modern stone cladding, and uses wall sconces traveling in an upward trajectory. Instead of a single large painting floating on a tall white wall, there’s a combination of organic textures and tones that gives the elegantly oversized space a cozy feel.

            Rachel Grace added this to Herringbone-Patterned Firebrick Takes Style to HearthJan 12, 2013

            The smooth silver travertine wall, textured cube ottomans and herringbone-patterned firebrick make for a lovely vignette here.

            Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Styling With Great Little Stools and HassocksJul 7, 2011

            Entire walls of stone need something very warm and fuzzy to offset them. This pair of hassocks covered in oversized loops of wool fills the bill.

            Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 8 Ways to Jumpstart a Room DesignMay 9, 2011

            Choose a stunning architectural element. A home's permanent fixtures often dictate decor, especially when they're as large as this fireplace. Soothing, creamy hues make this tremendous conversation space less intimidating and more intimate.

            Scheer & Co. Interior Design added this to Bring the Outside In With House PlantsApr 15, 2011

            In this room, the plant to the left of the fireplace is balanced by the one on the coffee table. Together, they introduce a jolt of color to a primarily beige interior. The texture of the finishes and the deep green make this room interesting and inviting.

            Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Modern Gothic Pool HouseFeb 21, 2011

            Continuing her celebration of textures, this fireplace wall is surfaced with travertine stone, reflecting the natural and organic elements that are key throughout the entire design. It is sleek and contemporary but warm at the same time.

            decordemon added this to Putting the Focal Wall to Good UseFeb 15, 2011

            While this stunning focal wall may not be the perfect fit for those on tight budgets, it demonstrates the power of a focal wall done right. The stone-clad wall has just enough contrast to give it a slight pattern. Plus, its overall neutral hues offer different options for playing with color through furniture and accessories. Should the stone have been blood red, black and beige, it may not have been so brilliant.
