Jennifer explains, "The fireplace demolition was relatively simple. We removed the old tile, framed out a new fireplace, and installed Carrara marble tiles and a vintage mantel found at a local shop. Since there were no gas lines or venting to worry about the job was more straightforward. Candles create a nice mood in the place of an actual fire." What an improvement! I love how the new, muted colors in the marble add so much elegance to the space. Have you renovated a fireplace in your home? How complicated was the project, and were you satisfied with the results?

Very pretty. I love the marble and the depth of the new fireplace really makes it a focal point.
