This square, blocky design feels almost like a blank canvas. With its neutral color palette and straight lines, it`s easy to think of this fireplace as too plain, but a closer look reveals subtle details that complement any modern home. For instance, the curved stone of the façade softens the hard edges and gently radiates heat throughout a room. The small hearth in front evokes memories of sitting a bit too close to the fire with a warm drink on cold nights. It can set the stage for a large, show-stopping piece of art or holiday-specific decorations. The simplicity and functionality of this fireplace are ultimately its greatest features, and it will figure beautifully and seamlessly into just about any home.
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.
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.
Light it on fire, use it to decorate or do both, because wood is HOT this year! Advancements in combustion engineering technology have transformed the environmental efficiency of wood burning fireplaces. Modern wood burning fireplaces burn wood longer and more completely, which means owners of modern wood fireplaces spend less money on fuel, less time stoking the fire, and less time cleaning the ash drawer.
