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!
