Specialty Project – KBDA 2017 Silver Winner
Lori Carroll, Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ
Tasked with creating a one-of-a-kind fireplace that would act as a stunning focal point to the master bedroom suite, designer Lori Carroll of Lori Carroll & Associates began by looking at the material issues. In this case, a trilogy of materials – silver quartzite, smoke black transparent metal and honed interlocking tiles – became the centerpiece of the bedroom, adding sophistication, textural interest and a unique, three-dimensional aesthetic.
According to Carroll, the goal was to create something simple yet stunning that would serve as a main focal point in the room. Paired with built-in shelving, this feature became an anchor for the master suite furniture arrangement.
The floor-to-ceiling design was inspired by the home’s cool grey color scheme and offers a modern, luxury aesthetic. Tile choices included Crescent Interlock Quartz Silver, Extreme Metalworks Smoke Black and Extreme Metalworks LCA #10.
