Edwardian Mantle & Built-Ins

I was asked to design a mantle and built-in bookcases for a home in Noe Valley.  The homeowners wanted them to look as if they had always been there.  I created a simple mantle design, drawing from the other original architectural details already in their home. I chose green, period correct subway tiles to surround the hearth.  The built-ins were designed to provide for specific storage needs, while staying within the parameters dictated by the Edwardian aesthetic.
