Our hearth and surround are traditional red brick. Mr. LK will be building our mantle (Federal style) when he gets around to it. It will probably be built out of birch, and will definitely be painted white (BM Chantilly Lace). We have a traditional center hall colonial home and wanted our fireplace to be consistent with that style. When we bought the house the surround was a grey slate tile that just didn’t work.

We have a gas fireplace with a tile surround, and maple mantle on top. I don’t have a good pic of it though.

Ours is just an apartment fireplace. But I figured I’d share anyway…

Love our fireplace… Slate tiles match the backsplash/floors in the kitchen, and the wood matle is carved very pretty. This is from one of the pictures from when we bought the house, so that is the previous owners’ furniture/decor.

Ours is Lime Stone. The picture is dark but in natural sunlight it is a very light grey with natural dark and light grey marbleing

Our fireplace was a 70s eyesore…so I whitewashed and sprayed the brass a matte black.  It still looks nice but is more understated now!

Ours is electric.  I would like to eventually make a “step” or something under so it looks more like a real fireplace, but for right now it works.

All the stuff in front of the fireplace is not there, this was the picture from the real estate listing before we bought it.  We moved in at the end of April this year.

I’m jealous of all of you, a fireplace sounds so nice this time of year!

@hassle_J:  Wow what a transformation.  I like it much better after you fixed it up.  Amazing what just the littlest things can do to make a big difference.

We’re living in an apartment right now, and unfortunately we don’t have a fireplace … so I’ll post my favorite one from my parent’s house. 

I love fireplaces. I can’t wait to buy a house so I can have one!
