Color blocking has been a major trend the past few years in everything from clothing to home design. Similarly, the DIY movement is making a huge comeback as the desire for unique, personal touches grows. This gorgeous fireplace combines both of those ideas to create a customizable look to match any decor. This look is simple to achieve and using a bright color against a largely neutral backdrop is an eye-catching element guaranteed to lend a polished air to any room. It`s particularly striking when you add small touches such as pillows or lampshades in the same color. A painted fireplace such as this one is the perfect way to express your creativity and personality!
For a clean and simple look, this unassuming fireplace packs a big punch. The offset hearth is charming in its simplicity, while the large white expanse is a fantastic place to display a beloved piece of art. The black and white design is the perfect backdrop for varying shades of green, and the boxy shape contrasts beautifully with soft, comfy furniture. Because this fireplace takes up a large portion of a wall, it gives a cozy and warm feeling. This is a perfect space for unwinding and relaxing, surrounded by the comforting glow of firelight and soft furnishings.
Concrete, granite, steel, and distressed wood are just a few popular materials adopted for the nouveau fireplace, with each module selected to compliment the interior setting. Inlaid or attached, modern fireplaces can accommodate entertainment systems or punctuate works of art, further allowing them to blend with one`s home and sensibilities, rather than stand apart from them.
Fireplaces can fit into any space. Wood can create a classic library fireplace, a modern hearth or a transitional focal point. Stone can be smooth, rough, stacked or fitted. It can retain its natural finish or get a coat of paint. Color contrast creates drama.
