In a living room filled (literally) with natural light and a bright wall color, darker marble tiles on the fireplace surround are stunning. The tiles’ reflective properties enhance the window lighting, and, despite the fact that the tiles are dark, they make the room feel even brighter.
Fireplace designs are not only common in elegant and classy homes. Stone fireplace designs are popular in the European home. Rustic fireplaces light up a country home and modern fireplace designs create a homely feel in contemporary and even minimal home designs.
One fireplace idea that goes against the tide is a beautiful incorporation of backwards thinking. Rather than do anything at all to the fireplace, you could create a similar stunning effect by focusing your efforts on the walls behind and surrounding the fireplace. A simple white fireplace surround, for example, looks awesome against a wood-planked wall.
If your fireplace isn’t of the type that’s used often (or ever), or if you don’t intend on using it, you can still make this desirable feature a benefit to your overall décor rather than a drawback. Beautiful chunky white candles on coordinating candlesticks, for example, give a nod to the concept of “firelight” while being framed out nicely by the fireplace surround itself.
