Fireplace ideas aren’t easy to find. We know that. This is why we made this collection of fireplace design ideas that will get the fire started. From Regency to modern fireplace designs, fireplaces add atmosphere to the home.It isn’t a long time until the winter holiday is coming and together with the family we will stay around the fireplace, that thing which warms the room and create a cozy feeling.
There is no place in a home where a fireplace can’t be built and here you will find more than 45 pictures of fireplace designs. Stone, brick, ceramics and other natural materials add to fireplace décor. We’ll also show you how mantel décor can add additional warmth to your home.
Modern fireplaces were traditionally built with stone and brick, but now use a range of natural materials, including marble and even glass. Modern gas fireplaces add instant warmth to a home. No matter the style you choose, a living room with fireplace will always be the heart of a home.
Sometimes the best building materials wash up right outside your door. This handcrafted stone fireplace features a driftwood mantel that the designer found on a nearby beach. The asymmetrical chimney adds visual interest.
Classic Meets Bohemian
These homeowners filled the base of their nonworking fireplace with sea glass for a shimmery effect. The white surround pops against the golden walls, and turquoise accessories add an eclectic feel to the room.
Play on Pattern
Designer Anthony Baratta is an ace at mixing motifs, like the checkered fireplace surround, plaid upholstery, and nautical-themed rug shown here. “It’s easy to mix patterns when you first pull together the palette itself,” he says. “We settle on the color palette before we even begin to work on a project.”
Grand & Cozy
This wood paneled fireplace with rough limestone surround provided the perfect centerpiece for the cozy living room of our 2009 Ultimate Beach House in North Carolina. Designer Phillip Sides designed the arts and crafts-style wooden consoles to frame the fireplace and created several conversation nooks―like the pair of slipper chairs by the fireplace―to make the large space feel more intimate.
Warm & Rustic
The walls and fireplace of this South African cottage are made of local materials―sand, cement, and wood―resulting in a farmhouse look.
Timeless & Traditional
The white brick fireplace and classic mantel of this Lake Michigan cottage sport traditional lines and provide a blank canvas for the homeowner’s colorful decor.
Inspired by Nature
Mosaic glass in seaside colors frame this fireplace, and a row of paintings depicting palm fronds against cloud-strewn skies echoes the color and brings the breeze indoors. The mantel acts as an extension of a wooden ledge that hugs the wall and provides space to display greenery and a rustic candel holder.
This crisp escape is actually an outdoor room, and is a true extension of the home. The white and black contrast of the fireplace is echoed throughout the room for a striking and cohesive look. A built-in nook keeps firewood dry and close at hand.
On the Half Shell
This oyster shell-encrusted fireplace makes a dramatic statement as the focal point of this room. Adding small holiday details like a rope garland with pine branches gives the mantel a festive feel without taking away from the coastal décor.
Serene & Sculpted
This smooth stone fireplace with its light wood mantel sets the tone for this living room, lending a cue of creams, browns, and soft lines. The sailboat model provides a nautical nod and fills the space above the mantel nicely.
