Black Fireplaces

With cold weather arriving, fireplaces have become a focal point in modern living rooms once again. Whether you have a wood burning fireplace or a gas fireplace, you’ll most likely get some use out of it this Fall and Winter season.

I personally love my fireplace! I love cuddling up on my sofa and watching the fire flicker in the night. Something else that I love is the contrast of a black fireplace against a white wall. It’s a lovely detail that can feel modern, fresh yet traditional and beautiful.

Above we see a simple black fireplace in a minimal space. It’s paired with a giant mirror and an equally awesome black chair. Love!

I love how this black fireplace looks behind a pale color chair. A light detail that speaks volumes. Also, the collection of shells lining the mantel is another fantastic idea for adding stylish home accessories to your decor.

To take the bold black color up a notch, we see the wall behind the fireplace above painted black as well as the fireplace. It’s a very dramatic approach to this space and looks quite stunning.

This fireplace is painted in more of a mocha brown. It still looks striking against the white wall and is complimented with the brown butterfly chair.

What are your thoughts on this fireplace trend?
