Fireplace Tiles are the Heart and Soul of your Home

Besides being the heart of the home, the fireplace is considered one of the home’s major interior architectural features and can set both the mood and the style of a room. Whether starting from scratch or modifying an existing fireplace, taking the time to learn about fireplaces, both past and present, will give you the guidance to determine what style will best fit your home and you.

“The Nokomis” fireplace

Using two different handmade tile sizes is a great way to add style to a monochromatic fireplace design. White Crane Design:Build commissioned this Copper Patina dynamite fireplace we call The Nokomis. They designed the fireplace using one color in two sizes, 3" x 3" and 1" x 2", to  create a simple and timeless look.  The Copper Patina variation adds highlights to draw the viewer in. Designer Donella Olson of White Crane Design:Build used 1" x 2" tiles to create a sense of movement around the facade and hearth.

The Mission Fireplace

Larger living rooms need a centering piece of architecture for the space to feel comfortable. Large fireplaces set the stage for the type of activities that will take place. This fireplace has two main features the 3x8" Aurora Borealis field tile and two custom stain glass tile mosaic accents flanking both the left and right legs of this Mission Style fireplace. Since the room is large a larger tile can be used to fit the scale of the space. It has a great presence in the space.

Colorado Four Sided Fireplace

A four sided fireplace is center piece of a room. They demand attention and you should give your guests and yourselves a treat. This client wanted to incorporate the Colorado landscape and colors in the tile design. I took a number of photos of the trees local to their environment in the mountains. Bristlecone pine are very expressive and made for a wonderful design reference. Contact Josh if you want a customized tile project to talk about options and the process.
