Fireplace Design

We selected the Giallo Tumbled Stone Travertine shown in the photographs below for the fireplace surround. We'll use the "mosaic" pattern shown at the top of the photo. The Sherwin Williams paint swatches to the right are the colors we are considering for the interior walls and trim. For the walls we're considering Casa Blanca-7571 (top), or Paper Lantern-7676 (middle). For the trim and ceiling we think Roman Column-7562 (bottom). The laminate wood flooring we have selected is on the left of the photo.

The fireplace in our new home will go in the front-left (south-west) corner of the Great Room. The fireplace unit itself will be a gas, direct vent, Lopi Hearthview 864. The area above the fireplace is simply a framed, flat area suitable for hanging a painting.

The surround will be faux stone, slate, or tumbled travertine. Our we may use a brick travertine mosaic.

The built-in bookshelves will be paint-grade, 48" high on each side of the fireplace (about 11.5 lineal feet total). A 4.25' long, 2.5'" high credenza (2 lower drawers, with 4 spaces above) will serve as the TV platform and component storage system (2 TiVos, a DVD player, and an audio receiver).

The audio for the TV will be produced through ceiling speakers in a 5.1 surround sound system. The sub woofer will be placed to the right of the TV.

Dimensions (note, drawers to be at bottom vice top of credenza)
