This fireplace replaced a floor to ceiling brick fireplace from the 1980′s. The original fireplace was massive and overpowered the room. The new fireplace surround and hearth is custom made of cast concrete in a more contemporary style. It is set in a slightly protruding section of wall which is painted a darker shade than the rest of the room. A new gas fireplace with crystals and a ribbon flame and a large oil painting complete this new focal point.
