This tile installation has become a record a family's history, because every member of this family got to pick out a tile for the hearth! I especially love that the 4 and 5 year old granddaughters carefully selected the mermaid and unicorn tiles. Why not have a few magical creatures in the mix? It totally works! The homeowner told me that whenever they come to visit, they always go to the hearth find "their tile." How sweet!
Here is a close up of some of the tiles before they were installed. Quite an assortment! Obviously this is a light-hearted family who is not afraid to have fun with their decor!
This living room looks like a truly inviting place to gather:
It makes me very happy to think that my tiles might play even a small role in helping to bring people together
These pictures came along with this charming message: "Wanted to send you some pictures of the fireplace with your beautiful tiles! We surrounded them with Milwaukee cream veneer brick and absolutely love how it looks. Thank you for your creativity and beautiful craftsmanship- I am so happy to have it as a centerpiece in my home!"
And what a lovely home it is! Thank you so much, M.H., for making my tiles into a unique focal point in your happy home! And thank you for taking the time to share your story and pictures. It means a lot to me to know that my work has meaning for you and your family.
