Designs That Never Go Out of Style
Winter is here, it seems, and though it can be hard to say goodbye to those mild and crisp fall days, colder temps mean it’s time to embrace the cozy. And there’s no better way to do that than with the first fires of the season.
Fireplace style runs the gamut from sleek and modern to pared town and traditional, and we love them all. If you’re on the hunt for ways to upgrade your space - whether via a fireplace facelift or addition - then read on. With these beautiful designs, your hardest decision will be narrowing it down to only one.
An emphasis on clean lines dominates this aesthetic, but it’s all about creating drama, too. From dark and moody-colored materials to unique placements within a room, a modern fireplace is rooted in defying the ordinary.
The possibilities for a tiled fireplace design are quite literally endless. Whether you’re drawn to bold and saturated color, encaustic-inspired patterns, or a textured neutral style, a tiled fireplace is simply stunning. Plus, it’s much easier to keep clean than more traditional stone or brick. Not too shabby, in our opinion.
Simple & Chic
Of course, when it comes to fireplace style, you can never go wrong with keeping things simple and chic. A monochromatic palette, for instance, can be gorgeous, and paired with a perfectly-styled mantel, it’s a sight you’ll never tire of - no matter how long winter lasts.
Last, but certainly not least, is a classic and traditional fireplace look. With these, luxurious mantel designs come to life, often with built-in bookshelves framing the fire, and there’s nothing quite like it. The best part about a traditional aesthetic? It’s forever timeless - guaranteed.
So, go ahead - light that fire and curl up with a favorite hot drink. It’ll be some time before we see warmer weather again, but we might as well enjoy this season while we’ve got it - and if we can do it in style with a fireplace that wows, well that just might be the solution to all those winter blues.
