Fireplace Detail...for Trance-Gemini
The fireplace is tiled, sort of unglazed and the size of subway tiles or thin bricks. I hope these photos show what you need to see. If you need more, let me know.
The following photo shows how the fireplace fits into the room, with the molding and mantle. I would remove the molding which forms a frame above the mantle, because it is not a proportion which makes it easy to put a picture in the space.
This shows the grout lines at the edge. Pretty wide, IMHO.
Not shown, the other fireplace in the living room or parlor. It is faced in polished 12 x 12 black granite tiles. So is the hearth. It gives a more formal effect.
