Still can’t get over this work of art: Lion’s Head Mantel- Ipanema Reserve Soapstone- Reposting for those who missed it :Inspired by the most famous love stories of all times , Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. After watching the movie, a renaissance styled mantel, sparked the artist’s interest. Inspired by the image, Brazilian artist Ronie Ryba, started his research in re creating the sculpture.During this research, Ronie found the original piece , a fireplace mantel , carved in stone blocks with great dimensions in one of the rooms of Villa Della Torre Allegrini @villadellatorre , just outside the beautiful town of Verona. Viewers are wonderstruck not only by the dimensions but also by the atypical structure, a zoomorphic fireplace .After many cuts, the lion appears before our very eyes. Approximate dimensions are 9’x9’x5’. The lion was already in the stone, even before the first cut, it just needed eyes to see it inside and hands that were able to bring it out. This one of a kind piece is looking for a home, please contact us for more information #soapstonesculpture #stonemantel #carvedmantel #fireplacemantel #fireplacemakeover #fireplacedesign #specksteinskulptur #specksteinofen #pietraollare #sculturacontemporanea #brazilianart #brazilianarchitecture #pedrasabao #villadellatorreallegrini #renaissance #renaissanceart
Since this project is now taking forever, might as well document it on the feed! This will be the new built ins and fireplace in the "formal" living room. Hate to even call it that bc it's feet away from "family" room- really it's the area that houses the piano and future built ins and fireplace. I had joe tape up the wall to get the measurements to order the firebox for the gas logs. So...now all the fireplace stuff is here- have to instal that, frame up a "chimney" type area, THEN the cabinet guy can come take final measurements. Swipe to see the inspo for the final product! #gaslogs #builtinshelves #downtownacres #fireplacemakeover #fireplacedesign
Is anyone else using the long weekend to get home projects done E and Trav are going to paint their living room while paint is on sale! A couple weeks ago, B & E updated E’s brick fireplace. A little paint goes a long way!! There’s a new post on the blog that details the process. Link in bio.
Time to do a little rehab in the office this week. I absolutely love this little fireplace, but that old dark brick was getting to me. A little whitewash goes a long way! The front entrance looks so much bigger and brighter now. So happy with the end result. Now time for some new wall paint and lots and lots of plants 🌱 🌿
To paint or not to paint the fireplace! You know when you buy your first home or day dream about it and you have all these visions of what it will look like! The perfect room, what furniture pieces will go in, the color of the wall, ah 😍
This is one of my favorite rooms in our home, but I’ve wanted to spruce up the fireplace and the tiling on the floor in front of it since we moved in. Check out my stories to see the poll from yesterday- the majority of you thought we should go for it and paint it white.
Do you like to DIY! What type of projects are you working on! #whitefireplace #homeinteriordesign #diyfireplace #fireplacemakeover #favoriteroom #westelmstyle #targetstyle
