No one would ever guess that your fireplace is builder grade with this clever DIY by Amanda Hervey, one of the three bloggers who writes for Our Storied Home. She used colorful Bali Turtle Pebble Tile in soothing blue and green shades to transform a beige hearth into an ocean-inspired fire surround. It took roughly eight, 12- inch sheets of the pebble mosaic tile to complete her project. Hervey suggests you can use leftover tiles to makeover other objects in your home like an old terra-cotta planter.
Both decorative and functional, cozy and statement-making, a fireplace is the heart of any home. And whether you like it or not, your fireplace is the focal point of any space that it occupies. For that reason, it`s important to give your fireplace the same attention that it attracts. The look of your fireplace can elevate–or downgrade–a space, so making it beautiful is key.
Nothing screams cozy quite like snuggling up in a blanket next to a toasty fire on a cold winter day. If you`re looking to bring the hearth into your home, or simply revamp your fireplace, these Dering Hall designs are the perfect inspiration.
For a modern twist on traditional style, look no further than this gorgeous hearth. With a shape reminiscent of the old-world wood-burning stoves, but with a sleekness that is as contemporary as it gets, this fireplace is a perfect complement to any home decor. In a minimalist home such as this one, the black and white stand in stark contrast with each other, but the cozy fire and the warmth it suggests keep the surroundings from seeming too harsh. This is a timeless design that will make any house feel like a lovingly curated home.
