In this blog I’m featuring  just a few of the fireplace makeovers from some of my favorite projects – take a look!

Whether you’re entertaining for the holidays or spending a cozy night in with family, nothing is more inviting than a fireplace glowing with warmth. A fireplace can make a great room truly great, and create a go-to space for entertaining and relaxing. I love a welcoming fire in a beautifully designed room!

 Easy Elegance: This spectacular family room and fireplace makeover is one of our recent projects.

The new tile fireplace is the showpiece in this room! The tile and height of this fireplace give this space a look all its own – see the before and after photos below.The gorgeous new chairs and jewel-toned ottomans add visual interest to this comfortable, sophisticated seating.

Think Outside the Brick

If you think a fireplace means brick – think again! Tile and stone add both texture and color to a fireplace and make it a focal point of the room.

This recent Design Connection project transformed a so-so brick fireplace into a high-impact masterpiece! We refaced the brick hearth in a beautiful stacked stone, adding a variety of textures and colors that compliment the  grays of the walls and tile. So stunning!

High Style with Tile –  Design Connection took this drab and traditional brick hearth to new heights.

What a difference – a fireplace that trims out to the ceiling added elegance and drama to this living room. This sleek tile in tones of brown, taupe and warm gray pick up the color palette of the room. Slim vases accent the height of this gorgeous showpiece!

Form and Function – My clients had grown tired of their light oak  fireplace. The mantle felt heavy and dated, and they longed for clean lines, crisp whites and a more contemporary style.


Design Connection, Inc. painted the frame white, and the fireplace surround keeps the transitional vibe going with a mosaic tile in a mix of rich blue-gray tones.

Fresh and Stylish Makeover – Design Connection, Inc. turned this trapped-in-time family room into a comfortable, contemporary space.

Painting the beams and walls and installing rich wood floors, instantly opened up this room. We took the fireplace from traditional to contemporary by removing the upper brick to make space for a flat-screen television. We painted the hearth white and added a minimalist dark wood mantle for a clean look. The built-in shelving displays artful accessories for an airy and open feel.
