Home is where the Hearth is

Currently, I'm working on a client's home and have started to think about solutions for his fireplace. He has decided to redo the mantle, as it is the first thing you see when you walk in and it needs to have some presence in the room. So, at 10:45 on a Thursday night, I've started pondering the fireplace and then my ADD strikes...

Simple with sharp details, classic. Side note: great organization above the fireplace, very well thought out and hung.

Refined, Traditional, Federal, I like.

A reclaimed mantel might be a good option. Finding this reclaimed mantel for sale on 
led me to start thinking about other projects, nonexistent projects...

Using a reclaimed mantel as storage, makes a killer bookcase

Or, a headboard.

And, I started concentrating again and found this gem, what a great room; kind of on track, masculine colors, eye-catching, I think I did a good job on my homework.

Until next time,
