Warm up by the Fire

Brr.... it's so sold here! We keep getting more and more snow, 2 snow days and a delay so far this week. I am feeling so ready for spring. In the meantime I just keep thinking warm thoughts and admiring some beautiful fireplace designs. If you have a fireplace and are looking for some inspiration to update yours, here are some ideas! These will focus mostly on different fireplace surrounds and in the next few weeks I'll talk about how to style the mantle ;) 

Classic Brick:

Brick is a timeless, versatile, and modest fireplace material. It can be whitewashed to soften the look and still show texture, or just painted an opaque color for a solid modern look.

Tile:

Tile is another popular choice that is just as versatile plus it's extremely customizable. It can be used to add subtle patterns such as the herringbone or diamond, or it can add a splash of color that ties into the rest of the room.
