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!
Few can deny the nostalgic joy of a good old fashioned fireplace, to say nothing of the warmth and heavenly glow provided on a long cold night or at an intimate gathering.
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.
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.
