There’s nothing like a warm fire to help you feel at home over the holidays. A constant focal point - in both indoor and outdoor living spaces - fireplaces exude relaxation and unique design opportunities. From sleek, large format tile to textured mosaics and stones, discover how today’s fireplace facades are taking on new form.

The characteristics of patina metal lend an urban accent to this nautical-inspired living space, while complementing the wooden accents surrounding the fireplace. Carry a sleek, large format tile with high color and texture variation from the fireplace to the ceiling for enhanced visual intrigue.

Opt for a skillful recreation of the refined elegance of marble in a porcelain mosaic for a traditional look. Subtle veining adds an ideal amount of contrast to a clean white mantle.

Combine various natural stones for endless design opportunities in an outdoor fireplace installation. Slate embodies striking dimensional texture along the fireplace with layers of earth tones, while Travertine covers the surrounding flooring for the ultimate rustic-luxe aesthetic.

In contrast, incorporating a neutral porcelain tile brings a soft, spa-like quality to an outdoor gathering space. Its subtle linear texture and authentic coloration highlight the gazebo’s design, without detracting from natural surrounds.
