Fireplace mantels

Lately I have been designing a lot of fireplaces. Everyone wants to know where to start. It's important to catalog ideas of things you like, but keep in mind it might not look the same on your fireplace. Some things to consider are if you want a mantel, crown molding, tile or stone,or if you have vaulted ceilings. This is latest fireplace I designed that we're in the process of building. We had considered all these thing but still hit a few snags with our contractor. It's a great idea to sketch everything out before hand so everybody is on the same page. Also keep an open mind to other ideas that might fit you home better. The current progress of my clients fireplace. I'm loving how it's turning out so far! We still have to add a marble subway tile and add some millwork.

This is the before.
This is in progress....

And here is some of our inspiration images.
