  1. We painted ours this summer–orange! (The bricks had been painted beige, and the grout was painted brown. Not exactly lovely.) And, yeah: Lots of paint. It took much longer than we thought it would, but we’re really glad we did it. Yours looks great! I would have been afraid to go with something so strong, but I love how it looks.

  2. Love your black fireplace. It makes such a statement! After seeing yours, I did the same thing to ours and we love it!

  3. Fireplace looks great. Have you told us before why you have a framed x-ray in your mantel arrangement? Just curious!

    • It’s a child’s chest x-ray that I found at one of my favorite haunts, Dali Python, No reason other than it’s kinda cool…looks like modern art to us

      • I like unusual finds to incorporate into my decor, too. Maybe I should frame my husband’s total hip x-rays. No. They’re not artistic-looking at all with that piece of metal taking center stage!

  4. Finally! a blog/ site that is classic, relevant and unfussy. Thank you for your refreshing ideas and style, I am your fan,

  6. my walls are a yellow toned beige. I painted my almost identical pink (!) fireplace white and while it looks ok – what do you think about it being black? I guess I could always repaint it.

    • Suzanne, we thought the same thing. The fireplace was painted so badly to begin with…we could always paint it a lighter color if we didn’t like the black..But know what? We just LOVE the balck.
