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.
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.
Of course it’s not a photo hanging on the wall, but this fireplace almost looks like one! A substantial yet neutral painted “frame” forms the bulk of this fireplace surround, promoting its presence and aesthetic appeal. Flanked between two stand-out dark wood shelving units, the vertical space on this fireplace wall has been used nicely. A low, horizontal fireplace design is a perfect complement to the existing design here, providing balance and visual appeal at each level.
Remember that fireplaces are important interior design elements, and give a beautiful appearance to the room they are placed in. This is why collecting pictures of fireplaces and exploring fireplace décor ideas will help you to make the most of this cozy area. From mantel ideas to fireplace candles, there is a range of different ideas to suit you.
