The fireplaces of today not only celebrate what connects us to our early brothers, but continue to earn their rightful place as modern heirlooms for generations to come.
The beauty of these fireplace design ideas is that you can find one or more as inspiration. Then, combine the elements that appeal to create your own look. You can keep the changes to the mantle and below or go as far as the ceiling. The decision is yours.

For nearly a decade Kate, an avid renovator and decorator, has been dishing out expert interior design advice on her blog Centsational Style.
