Maar Hala. Fireplace. September 30th , 2017.
A safe choice would be to make the fireplace the center of attention. This works out great if the fireplace also doubles as a space divider. If you have an open floor plan which includes the living room, dining area and perhaps even the kitchen, you can use a stone fireplace to make all these areas feel inviting.
Your mantel really can be as simple as can be while still looking sophisticated and stylish, as this elegant cream living room evidences. Notice that the décor has characteristics that are directly opposite the mantel itself – the mantel is chunky and rustic, the décor is gilded and refined. The combination works beautifully because both are of muted tones within the room’s color palette.
A chunky wooden mantel below the fireplace does wonders for a large white wall…which happens to have a fireplace situated perfectly centered between two windows. Because these three elements are each, in and of themselves, a focal feature, the long-running bench-as-mantel brings them together. In this instance, where eyes are drawn to multiple places at once, less is truly more in mantel décor. A sea-colored oversized glass vase with green cuttings is a great balance of the window views and flames.
