Fireplace Makeovers Add Extra Warmth

Before: This brick fireplace needed an update and some character.

After: The brick was covered in sheetrock which received a glazed, lime plaster finish. The mantel, from a Shanghai palace ca. 1890 or so, received a fresh finish with bronze highlights on its details and lighting in its carved openings. The Imperial Brown granite hearth finished the project.

Custom Built Fireplaces: Fabulous!

Before: A Doylestown, PA family room fireplace is way too small for the space it occupies.

After: The new, custom built mantel with shadowbox is perfect for this space. A pearlescent glow in the fireplace finish adds depth, while the metallic background in the shadowbox lends an edge to decor which is more clean-lined in nature.

This mantel was built around a pre-existing surround. A faux ebony finsh with plenty of gold accents were just what these homeowners wanted.

Moldings Make the Room

Before and After: New, larger moldings with a faux ebony finish give these doorways a sense of importance. The size upgrade now puts them in scale with the high ceilings of the space.
