e-design fireplace makeover, mirror source, + one more

{Thank you so much for the kind feedback on my new logo I shared here.  You're the best!}

I am so lucky to have clients that listen to my direction.  

When I first saw this fireplace for e-design clients in Alpena, I was struck by how pink and beige the surround looked.  The homeowners didn't even notice it anymore, but pinky beige can be very bossy, and clash with walls and furniture.

Thankfully they trusted me to use simple tiles to make a dramatic change.  The fireplace is a central feature to their living room and now it's stunning.  To say I'm envious would be an understatement!  We simply tiled over their existing stone.

Here they are side by side.

This fireplace is in the same living room as the picture below.  If you follow me on instagram (abbyminteriors) you know it as #alpenalakehouse.  Many of you asked me the source for the mirror.
You ask...and I deliver.  I can't always share sources, but this mirror is too good not to share.

You can find it here.

Also, exciting moment around our house: I bought a new painting for our dining room. I saw it at Blue Door Antiques and couldn't stop thinking about it.  I knew that was the sign to go back and buy her.  
Isn't she lovely???

That's all for today.  Full before and after shots of the #alpenalakehouse coming soon! I'm off to do a site check on a major kitchen renovation.  Love my job.

  1. Looks great. Just wondering..... can you give a ball park for what it costs to switch out a fireplace? I would love to do that for our. Thanks.

  2. Abby- We are LOVING the fireplace (and entire room) and can't wait for the other fireplace to be completed. Rochelle- We paid $400 in labor for this fireplace and roughly $250 in tiles. Pretty inexpensive project for such big results.
