Courtney’s New House Journals – and Modern Hearth Ideas

Hi TCI Readers! Courtney Here–
Welcome to our home…
We have WALLS!
 (the entryway looking into the family room and the family room looking into the kitchen)
After just a few days, the sheetrock has been hung and brick has been laid.
One by one this home is coming together!!

(family room)
And now that means I am going to have to start finalizing some decisions….

Lighting…backsplash …. and the current issue … the hearth stone.
*Because of where our firebox is, we are required to have a hearth by fire code. 
The stone surround is a linear 12×24 vein cut limestone. So for the hearth, I thought it would be interesting to do a  rough-edge natural gray stone slab set on the floor.* 
This has proved harder to find than I thought. BUT i haven’t given up hope yet!
Have you considered stone hearths??
Here are a few modern floating stone slab hearth ideas out there that we love:
This one is interesting. The stone is cut and laid in a herringbone zigzag pattern
which blends nicely with its surroundings.
And why not throw in a Christmas hearth to top it all off 😉
Dress up your hearths for Christmas and I will keep you
posted on what we decide to make ours out of!! (hopefully ….. )
