Nothing warms the heart like sitting by a cozy fireplace. Therefore, it’s the perfect time of year to share some designs for your pleasure and inspiration. Every fireplace tells a different story about the home in which it’s a part. With this in mind, can you understand what each of these is saying?
- This stone fireplace is classic in design. However, the choice of the stone (color, texture, and size) has an ordered and logical feel to it, giving it an overall sense of refinement. As a result, it’s classic with a modern twist. Design by Studio McGee
2. An old world inglenook. With its large, local stonework and years of scorch marks, this beauty lets us know it’s been around for a while. While it occupies only a small part of the room, it demands that we notice it. But, we notice it in an understated way. Design by Point One Architects
3. Modern and sleek, this fireplace anchors the room. To illustrate, the concrete material with the shape of the firebox lets us know this is indeed a modern space. At the same time, simple details and ordered appearance still allow the views beyond to dominate. Design by Carney Logan Burke Architects
7. Black steel surround, with modern and comfort everywhere, this one’s a classic. However, it’s detailed with a modern touch. For instance, the shape and proportion of the firebox are unique. At the same time, it adds a sense of proportion and scale to the room that we can enjoy. Conversely, furnishings provide a stark contrast to the fireplace. They are soft, full of texture, and say, get ready to relax. Likewise, add a little rustic feel and you have a winner. Design by Studio McGee
