Cozy up around these fireplaces

December 18, 2017

Tis the season for curling up in front of the fireplace with something warm to drink and maybe also a good book. Whether you’re a minimalist, modernist, traditionalist or whatever else have you, there’s a fireplace in this roundup for you.  Beyond the pure function of a fireplace, they’re also a great focal point to center a room around and you can add a lot of style through your choice of materials, textures, colors, and more.

Layer on the texture through materials like brick, wood, and other natural elements.

I love the juxtaposition of this beautiful brick fireplace in an otherwise updated, modern bathroom.  The clawfoot tub gives a nod to the past and the addition of tile around the hearth itself brings another layer of personality.

This great room is a wonderful example of how a fireplace can provide a focal point for a living room.

A beautiful vintage inspired shiplap surround painted in a dusty blue is the perfect counterpoint to the whitewashed brick. This room has so much farmhouse charm.

Try shiplap on an angle for a new spin on a traditional classic.

And don’t forget the firewood! I’m loving these creative spins on storage, whether indoors or outdoor. I’m particularly partial to the built-in versions. A great way to repurpose your otherwise underused space.

I’m in love with this romantic holiday scene and how the candles from the mantel are echoed on the beams. Totally dreamy.

A beautiful fireplace is surrounded with a repeating patterned tile, but the effect is far from overwhelming thanks to a minimalistic color scheme and pops of natural wood in a honey stain.

I’m officially ready for Christmas break and loads of snuggling up with my kiddos, watching movies. Happy holidays to all!
