Top 5 Design Posts

As summer weather slowly gives way to cooler temperatures, we feel compelled to cuddle up with a blanket and our favorite book (or streaming service when the mood strikes.) This week we are taking a look at some cozy and creative fireplace designs to stir up our Autumn imaginations.

1. Modern But Still Cozy

Not every fireplace has to look like it came straight out of a Victorian mansion. This collection of cabin fireplaces range from rustic to space-age, but they all bring warmth while fitting in perfectly with the aesthetics of the rest of the home.

2. Elevate Your Design

The Coziest Time of the Year, Lauren Liess

Designer Lauren Liess created a gorgeous gathering space big enough to fit the whole family around the fireplace. Pairing the hearth with a tall, vertical stone feature wall draws the eye upward and makes the room feel larger.

3. Spruce up your Mantle

Interior stylist Emily Henderson’s blog boasts a fabulous list of ways you can primp your fireplace or mantle. Any fireplace surround can feel completely different depending on how you decorate – and now is the time to get into the Fall mood with foliage, pumpkins, and candles. (Remember your fire safety and don’t let any decorations get too close to the flames!)

4. Home and Work Collide

Workplaces are taking notice – the more healthful a space you can create for your employees, the better the effect on worker retention, happiness, and productivity. Incorporating an inviting, and frankly swanky, lounge space with a central fireplace is a great way to improve design in an office.

5. Double Delight

This inviting Potomac home designed by Zoë Feldman has not one, but TWO fabulous fireplaces with very different styles. The main living room features a clean, contemporary glass fireplace. The corner sunroom sports a rustic, stone design to fit the less formal atmosphere.
