Vineyard Home

Hi Everyone,
Here is the fireplace in our dining room.
It used to have pink tiles and was missing a mantel?
I could not wait to redo it.
I looked for months in magazines for inspiration and here is the results.
I really love the clean traditional feeling the old brick brings with the white mantel.
I will post before pictures soon so you can see before and after. I almost don't want to show you it was that bad.
The house was originally built in the 70's and we are the 3rd owners. I was inspired by our God families home in Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard. Their home overlooks the harbor and is glorious. We try to visit every summer.
My goal is to try and make this home built in the 70's in California feel like a old Cottage on the Vineyard.
No easy task to try and add character to this weird and funky floor plan.
Don't even get me started on the HUGE skylight in the kitchen and the atrium room surrounding our bedrooms? The house does have an amazing view and we have over an acre and 1/3 of land so the good out ways the bad.I am up for the challenge
Especially if it turns out as good as the fireplace
