We are crushing over black fireplaces. Something so simple as a coat of paint can make the biggest impact in a room! Chic and elegant and a touch edgy- a black fireplace feels at home in many spaces.
Black and white done to perfection; this living room is the ultimate modern chic design. Painting the lower half of the wall the same black as the mantel gives weight to the room and allows for a dramatic jumping point to white and grey furniture in front of it. Layering shades of white and unexpected artwork balance the rigid black background. Pairing the traditional mantel with a classic carrara marble with wisps of black and grey is the perfect compliment to eachother. We love this room!
For a more classic look, opt for a warm cream stone tile to break up the black mantel. Mixed with deep warm marsala hues with the vase and dried berries, it feels warm and inviting. A soft sage paint and white wainscoting are traditional and sophisticated against the bold black fireplace.
Paired with a clean neutral background, using the black floor to ceiling is a striking contrast. Keeping clean whites and soft natural wood tones elevates the space into a modern and fresh interpretation. Adding texture is key from keeping a neutral space from feeling sterile- the shaggy throw pillow and furry area rug soften the look.
A baroque fireplace is the perfect spot for a hit of black. A bit eccentric when paired with the ornate detailing, this oozes style combined with the black accents in this living room. Echoing the zebra pattern and rich coffee table, the fireplace compliments the space but isn’t main stage.
Another great use of marsala tones against a black backdrop, this living room had a mod feel and nod to the 1960’s with retro furniture and a worn Persian rug. Clean strong lines in the fireplace is a contemporary take and the smooth matte finish is the perfect way to showcase black in this space.
Playful and bold, taking black across an entire wall with bookshelves is high impact. The use of bright fun colours adds a touch of whimsy and playfulness to what could become a stark space. Dramatic and modern, the careful placement of bright yellows, blues, and pinks, adds enough sass into the wall that the look is cohesive without being too serious.
