We’ve all seen fireplaces in which the mantel face is stone from floor to ceiling; however, consider this stunning impact when the stone is laid floor to ceiling, end to end on the entire wall. The fireplace wall is immediately and entirely the focus of this space, and no other art or décor is even needed.
Install trim around your fireplace that frames the fireplace itself. We love this tiered trimming concept, done in all white like the rest of the room’s walls, as an accentuation of the fireplace itself. Classic and clean architectural detail that packs a punch.
While it’s not a strategy that alters the actual fireplace, this decorating idea is one that makes sense in nearly any fireplace setting. A large, chunky mirror hung directly above the fireplace provides a vertically balancing force to the lower visual weight that is the fireplace itself. It lightens and brightens the overall look particularly when the fireplace insert is black in a light room.
The simplicity of a contemporary marble surround, with smooth surfaces and clean angles and lines, will make the fireplace the first thing everyone will notice when they come into your living room. We like the contrast of white surround with a colored wall.
