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.
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.
