Having a fireplace in your home can generate a wonderfully warm and cozy living space, perfect for those brisk winter days to extricate the chill out of any room in your dwelling. A fireplace is almost always the focal point of a room, adding warmth not just in the physical sense but also in the emotional ambiance of the space. However, a fireplace alone doesn’t bring true comfort into your home. You need to add a few design and decor tricks to the space by selecting the right style, surround, and furniture to truly make it cozy. Adding decorative detailing around the fireplace, such as the hearth and mantel, will enhance the character and style. The good thing is that it’s to too difficult to turn a fireplace into a really luxurious and warm part of any space. Just add a few pillows, the right artwork, the correct placement of furniture around the fireplace … these little things can really add up to a warm house.
Whether you prefer a stone surround or something a little more modern, the collection of fireplaces we have gathered together for you will prove that a striking design is all it takes to become center stage in these stylish spaces.

Serene, With an Edge: Designer Benjamin Dhong envisioned the living room in this San Francisco home as a serene retreat. “That’s why the walls are a little darker and there are big lounge chairs by the fireplace,” he says. “At then end of the day, drink in hand, they can put their legs up on that wonderful ottoman. The zebra brings in a tiny bit of edge that doesn’t intrude.”

What makes this fireplace fabulous is that it has a built-in area for you to keep the logs for the fire. This really adds to the charm of the fireplace. The logs themselves form a sort of structural artwork in the wall. The fact that you can actually see the wood that will be used to create the fire makes you feel so much more in touch with the natural elements than you would be if the wood was hidden away until it was used.
