"Fall" for this Fireplace
Library Fall Leaf Fireplace
This fireplace is located in a book-filled library with views out into a forest. We chose a green and leafy design to complement the sense of so many trees just outside. The designs for the leaves were based on actual leaves collected around the city of Boulder and sketched onto tiles. The background color on the tiles is a gloss forest green that also matches the felt on the pool table in the library. The leaves are a matte yellow with gloss edging. This provides an interesting tactile contrast. The tiles themselves are sized for exact fit within the alcove. No tiles were cut down in this installation. The large scale of the installation provides an extremely useful thermal mass associated with the fireplace.
