*Fireplace renovations can have more space constraints than tile renovations and the configurations are endless. By changing the tiles blanks to 8 x 6, the height can be increased or decreased in 6-inch increments. Leaving a slightly larger outside border allows widths to be adjusted at install time. Let me know if your project needs this kind of accommodation.

William De Morgan Turquoise Peacock Fireplace: Scotland

William De Morgan turquoise peacock fireplace, Scotland

The turquoise peacock fireplace brighten an Arts & Crafts sitting room on Loch Earn in Scotland. The colors of the De Morgan carnation border were adjust to work with the peacocks. I very much like the owner's re-use of the copper from the original fireplace. The copper works so well with the turquoise.

William De Morgan Fireplace: Fantastic Ducks

Fireplace with fantastic duck tiles

De Morgan did something different with the Fantastic Ducks: He stenciled them. These ducks were bespoke tiles for a Boston area fireplace installed in May 2016. The stylized ducks work equally well in American Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, and early Victorian installations. De Morgan Duck Tiles
