Fireplace - beach house

January 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Looking to completely remodel my fireplace in my living room. The living room is the first room once you enter the house and a focal point in this room. The hardwood floors are not in yet but will be a cherry hardwood floor (see photo). Should I do tile or stacked stone is the first question and second is should I just do an inner lining with the tile / stacked stone and a mantle /hearth or bring the tile/stacked stone to the ceiling. Thanks

Most beach houses I've been in have sandy colored floors. For a casual look stacked stone all the way up the wall. A wood mantel and tile surround would be more formal. your choice depends on the style you like.

With you dark floor, I think I'd do stacked stone on all of it, with a modern "floating" mantle that complements your wood floor. Here is a stacked stone, but how about wrapping the mantle on on three sides? But, after looking...is the "back" wall bare? Can you sheetrock that? Or, will that be stone too?

i think that you should go with a lighter floor. I cant really tell but the walls look average height, so a dark red-toned wood would really take away length of the ceilings. And I would do a traditional white sculpted wood. Just like the photo below.
