If you have been following me on Instagram, then you maybe saw this post about the fireplace design/inspiration I am working on for my latest remodel project in the Foothill area of Salt Lake City on Cherokee Circle.
I think it was a close tie, maybe a slight lean toward the left image because it has more drama and modern goodness. And a lot of suggestions to do a tall fireplace like the left but in a lighter color – a win-win! So I think that is the plan – a more dramatic and modern fireplace. But right now the fireplace looks like this…
And the house looks like this…
going to get some gorgeous windows soon!

As I am working on the design of this home I keep running into a little dilemma. First of all, this modern home is a stretch for me, as it’s not my go-to aesthetic (even though I love modern design). Secondly, when I do design modern, it falls into two categories that I like to call “masculine modern” and “pretty modern“. As you can see from the two exterior inspirations, one is more “masculine” and the other more “pretty”. For resale, I can’t decide what appeals to more buyers. Your help on this problem would be SO helpful!! I’m torn…
The kitchen is going to be a stunner with no upper cabinets and lots of bronze paned windows, kind of like this.
With modern cabinets like these.
|masculine + pretty- possible to mix the two?|
|oh so pretty|
|masculine -with a great black chevron tile|
|feminine – herringbone tile in a light grayish color|
