Living Room Fireplace – A slate surround?

I found a lovely black slate surround online recently, but unfortunately it wasn’t the right size for our fireplace. The images in the advert however were really useful though! With a little image manipulation and stretching, I was able to create a rough photoshop test of what our black slate fireplace will look like in situ.

My plan is to find a simple profiled surround that matches the other ones in our house, like the one in our master bedroom which you can see here. I think the surround will then be a nice blend between something historically accurate in terms of material, shape, and scale but it will be given a modern twist as I’ll be keeping the black slate visible.

I’m pleased with the test and think it will look quite striking.
