There is no need to feel the stress of taking on a full room redo. Often the smallest projects yield the most accomplished feelings and its making those baby steps that get the inspired juices flowing. Small touches to your fireplace are a great way to create a new look for your space with out getting in over your head. I loved the idea so I had done a simple update to my fireplace in my living space that was featured in Anthology Mag the summer of 2012. I used one of my favorite prints of temporary wallpaper to vamp up my look.
This fireplace caught my eye, because there are some neat wood fixtures you can get to compliment your fireplace when not in use and this is one of them. Also, the mini strips of tiling on the fireplace is a refreshing change from large tile or brick. Let this inspire a modern appeal for your home.
This image holds the key to a simple update that will set you free. Paint! A fresh coat of white paint on your fireplace will brighten and leave you happier than can be. Don’t feel like you have to kiss all of your brick goodbye, this image shows you can leave the inside natural to keep some of the original look and color.
Creating a contrast is beautiful. If you are willing to paint it all, part with your brick and paint the actual fireplace black and the mantle white. You will love your fireplace turned statement piece as much as I love this image.
This image is for two kinds of people. The bold and those who have a fireplace that is not functioning. Take the plunge in a pop of color while keeping the walls neutral to achieve a drastic fireplace update.
Use contact wallpaper to add a glimpse of your favorite print or pattern inside your fireplace. Don’t feel like you have to commit to a whole wall of wallpaper when you can have it in moderation and in an unexpected place.
