Rustic large room with stone fireplace and window wall. #greatrooms homechanneltv.com stone fireplaces
Stone is a great material to bring into your home: it's all natural, looks spectacular, and adds texture and, therefore, interest to your space. How can you incorporate it into your home decor? Create an accent stone wall, choose stone floors or a stone fireplace. I want to share some ideas on the latter as this is the easiest option and can fit many rooms.
A stone fireplace or fireplace doesn't always mean it should be stone: for example, it can be made of concrete and clad in stone for a catchy look. You can mix and match stone and brick inside, or marble, or even go for river rock and stone to create your own unique look. A stone fireplace can be rocked in many rooms, from a living room to a screened porch, and it can also divide the rooms, such as a living room and kitchen. It also offers many styles of decoration, from the farmhouse to the modern, and it fits perfectly.
How do I decorate a stone fireplace? First of all, you can whitewash it or paint it white - if that's what you want and need. You can opt for a mantelpiece or no mantelpiece - it depends on the look you want. Decorate the mantelpiece with various figurines, potted plants, works of art and candles. If the fireplace doesn't work, you can also put some candles or at least some firewood in it. Firewood niches in the fireplace and baskets with them are very welcome to create a cozy and inviting feeling in the room.
