For those whose tastes lean more toward the ancient and ornate, a fireplace provides an ideal spot for showcasing that style. Grecian statues flank this green tiled fireplace, but the details don’t stop there – the trim, moulding, brass log holders (whatever they’re called), all of it just works together to create a lovely traditional yet standout fireplace.
Fireplaces themselves can’t be made of wood for obvious reasons. But that doesn’t mean this warm natural material should be avoided altogether. In this stunning fireplace setting, for example, a chunky wood mantel and equally substantial corbels bring warmth and provide a distinct separation between the mantel face and the upper wall.
For the home with a chic retro feel or a mid-century modern vibe, this fireplace idea is perfect! Using cinder block-type materials, installed vertically at various depths with intermittent glass tiles, a freestanding fireplace is fantastically emphasized. Works well here flanked by two large windows, to keep the space feeling fresh and intentional.
Raw concrete is all the rage in the industrial style, and its use as a fireplace surround and mantel face is en pointe here. Although the contrast between the harsh concrete and the tree branches overhead is impactful, if you’re unable to incorporate the natural look in this way, the concrete fireplace itself would be an eye-catcher in any space.
