Modern Fireplace Beauty

As much as I love rustic, Old World fireplaces, I do love a clean, modern look as well. Just look at this beautiful room designed by Charles Glover Interiors, Scottsdale, Arizona.

The fireplace surround is simply elegant but all of the gorgeous artwork and furnishings just make you want to drool. Don't you love the painting of the Channel bottle.....fantastic! This room certainly has it's own personality like no other.

The fireplace material is GFRC precast concrete by Mesa Precast & Supply, LLC, Tempe, Arizona.

Sandblasted Cantera Fireplace

Cantera is extremely popular in the southwest, not only for fireplace surrounds but for all types of home embellishments. I thought this photo would be an interesting post as I don't see too much sandblasted cantera applications. Sandblasting really brings out the darker spots for old world charm especially with fire brick detail on the inside of the fire box and the beautiful iron.
