    Hi Chassenrueck- For some reason I am not able to answer the question you posted on houzz for our firm regarding a fireplace wall project, specifically type of tile use on surround!!!!
    Unsure why. But here is the answer- it is a 12 x 24 Mare Bianco Travertine. Hopefully that helps you search it out in Calgary.
    Regards,
    Laura

    Note that if you cannot find pre-cut tiles, likely a slab fabricator (a countertop supplier) will be able to get or have a slab of Mare Bianco Travertine and cut tiles to size you specify, from the slab. This is another way designers get the look they want - when tiles not available - and when slabs of material are available. Just a suggestion.

    I just noted your statement that the fireplace surround was 12 x 24" Mare Blanco travertine tile. Here you say; "surround is Anne Sacks marble 30 x72 Athens Silver Cream." I am confused. Which is it? It looks like what I've spent a year plus looking for.

    They are very minimal grout lines. Luckily the direction and pattern if the stone "hides" the grout lines very well.

    Stunning marble fireplace in our Ann Sacks Athens Silver Cream tile. This is a neutral stone that is anything but plain. Cream colored marble characterized by its tread like linear striated pattern that is delicate yet distinguish. Comes in slabs, field tile or mosaics.

    Hello, thank you for your inquiry. This is a gas fireplace by Regency and we used travertine stone slabs from Ann Sacks for the surround. Depending on the specifications of your fireplace you would have to check with your contractors/installers on the type of material that can be used on the surround. We have not had any issues with this installation.

    Suggest you don't use manufactured stone for a fireplace unless it is set well back from the opening. It has silicone in it which expands when warm.
    I used it and regret it though it looks great Sadly the joints expand every time we turn the fireplace on. Travertine would be a better choice.

    Hope this helps.

Laura Gaskill added this to How to Convert Your Wood-Burning FireplaceApril 18, 2014

Why switch from wood? Wood-burning fireplaces do little to heat a room — in fact, they typically pull warm air from inside the home and send it right up the chimney. If someone in your house has asthma, allergies or other respiratory issues, irritants from the fireplace can make these problems worse. Wood-burning fireplaces are also responsible for a surprising amount of air pollution, which is why there are restrictions on wood burning in some areas. They can also cause home fires, due to a buildup of creosote, the substance left behind on the chimney walls after wood is burned.Hire a chimney cleaner to keep yours clean and safe

Elements of Style added this to 6 Focal Points to Build a Beautiful Interior AroundSeptember 29, 2013

Architectural feature. A central element, like this fireplace, can help you position your furniture in a room. Notice how the furniture in this space revolves around the fireplace. The stone surround also sets the color tone for the sofa, chairs and drapes. Getting the size of the architectural element right in the room is vital. If it's too big, it can look and feel uncomfortable. If it's too small, your furniture will become the focal point, taking away from the main feature. Read more about scale
