I have been throwing around ideas about this fireplace for a couple of months now. I had Daniel draw me up some plans for the mantle and I have been visiting tile showrooms looking for the perfect tile. I love the mantle Dan created and I think I may have found the right tile. I love the colors but am not totally sold on the diamond shape-I was looking for 1x1 square tiles. But it might work. Let me know what you think...I could use all the help I can get. I have to order within the next couple of weeks.
p.s. I colored the tile in Dan's drawing just for the mantle to stand out. The colors are to oceany and blue for what I want.
