Painting a red brick fireplace white is a clean, modern, and timeless idea as shown with this newly built example in a modern farmhouse inspired den by Erin and Kirsten, the interior designers behind House of Jade Interiors based in Utah. The fireplace was constructed using reclaimed bricks. The duo points out that brick is super porous and it will take multiple coats of paint to cover adequately. For a pinch of contrast, the hearth pad features black and white square tile laid out in a harlequin inspired pattern.
Not ready for a new fireplace? You can still get in on this year`s hot refinishing trend. If you already have a fireplace, consider refinishing your existing hearth to instantly update the look of a room. If you`re suffering from cold chimney draft, install a wood, gas or pellet fireplace insert for instant warmth, added style and a reduced monthly home heating bill.
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!
Choosing a fireplace that doubles as a geometric work of modern art is a surefire way to make a statement. With a bold aesthetic that looks more like it belongs in a museum, this modern fireplace absolutely does not fade into the background. The corner placement is a unique design element, making use of a space that generally isn`t the focal point of a room. With a large, comfortable chair and sleekly modern home decor, you can create a gorgeous reading nook or workspace anyone would be proud to have in their home.
