Before and After: A Fabulous Fireplace

In a matter of six months, Suzy of Studio Annetta bought a house in Australia, moved in, gutted the house, renovated it, and then moved out. The house has since been sold, so she'll never get to enjoy her beautiful renovations, but you can! Shown here is the living room fireplace, a red brick eyesore with a Chinoiserie mirror on the mantel. The fireplace original to the house had been taken out, and stripped of its original moldings and architectural features. Suzy restored the room to its former glory, bringing in a more historically appropriate fireplace, painting the walls a bright white, and replacing the floorboards. The transformation is stunning, and really gave the space a sophisticated style with a historical presence. To see the after photo and more photos of her renovation,
