We are also tackling the fireplace which the owners want to revamp. The white painted brick, the brass and glass doors (yikes), and the overall height don’t go with the low-slung mid-century feel of their living room.
We’ve removed the mantle, a few rows of brick, the pinkish stone hearth, and the doors.
The tile we’ve selected is Luxor Grey by Ann Sacks. It’s a long thin tile that will accentuate the horizontal lines in the room. I laid it out to get a good mix because the natural stone is slightly varied in color.
Now back to the bathroom: We’re down to the studs to install the new window, frosted glass for privacy. We’re going from horizontal to vertical with the window. Everything has been removed; the tile, the entire shower, the vanity.
We put insulation in where there was none before. More to come!
