3 Fireplace-Friendly Living Room Designs
Classic & Clean
A white wooden mantel and brick-look surround set a classic tone that gets a fresh twist with Tiffany blue walls, shapely white armchairs, sleek accents and a bold floral rug.
To get the look, consider these finishing details:
1. Contrast cool blue walls with warm metal accents, such as the brass mirror and lamp.
2. Choose furnishings with complementary legs in harmonious wood tones.
3. Accent with fresh takes on classic blue-and-white porcelain pieces.
Rustic & Fresh
If an earthier room is more to your liking, then a fireplace surrounded with rusticated stones topped with a warm wooden mantel is probably the ticket for you. Here, faux stones in random sizes and a richly finished, hand-milled cherry mantel lend coziness and substance to the room, while spice-tone walls and accents brighten it. Overstuffed leather armchairs and a chunky throw anchor the space with an even greater sense of comfort.
To round out the look, try these extra touches:
1. Reinforce the rustic tone with cast-iron or bronze accents.
2. Add a playful quality with board games and toy cars as accessories.
3. Keep the feeling fresh with boldly patterned pillows and a lively colored rug.
Organic & Modern
For dyed-in-the-wool modernists, the best way to set off a sleek, minimal fireplace is with an equally clean-lined surround. Here, a monolithic frame made from an icy white, eco-friendly stonelike composite elevates the stature of the chic black fireplace without overwhelming it. The crisp color pops against pale green walls. Geometric chairs, plenty of dark wood and some hand-wrought accents cut the modern edge with a little organic warmth.
To add extra flavor to this serene look, consider these ideas:
1. Balance boxy forms with accents in round or cylindrical shapes.
2. Brighten a neutral room without going against its grain with shots of lively shades of green.
3. Add interest with a range of textures in upholstery, rugs, throws, pillows and vases.
