California Dreaming: The Fireplace Transformation

This California house required some California dreaming.... but the dreaming came from Toronto!  Long distance projects are never a problem for Katherine Joy Interiors!  With several emails, a quick trip to California and a few long distance telephone consultations, we were able to complete this beautiful room!  

The tall angled fireplace wall was lacking interest and needed attention.
The chairs had a dated pickled wood finish and required updating.
The carpet was purchased in Toronto at WEAVERS ART and was the main inspiration to the room's finishing.

Slabs of Mother Nature's Natural Green Onyx were selected from OLLIN STONE and fabricated by AOCC Stone Fabrication in Ahaheim, California as the main attraction to this contemporary fireplace.

An artistic rendering was done to simulate the final look of this fireplace wall and after precise placement for the best flow of pattern.... the onyx installation began.

The California dream came true... this room is now harmonious.  The wood framing of the existing chairs were refinished darker to add more warmth and elegance to this already beautiful room!  The featured wall of onyx surrounding this fireplace is a perfect balance with the area carpet  and a welcoming retreat for the homeowners and their guests.
