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!!
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 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 ….. )
