Fireplaces are the heart of the home, standout focal points of any room, and practically scream comfy winter night, bundled on the couch with wine and a good movie. As the colder weather approaches (unfortunately) we’re dreaming of ways to warm up our living spaces, and nothing could be better than perusing chic and cozy brick fireplaces to draw up some living room inspiration.
These 15 brick fireplaces are inspiring us to make what is old new again and embrace this traditional style of fireplace in new, creative ways, with a little help from paint and décor. Scroll on to see new takes on the cozy classic fireplace.
Dark and Moody
This stunning brick fireplace is the darker cousin to your traditional brick red, lacquered in black and anchoring the living room. With a bold fireplace like this, it is important to achieve balance in the room from other elements, like the warm brown chairs and textured shag throws. Shelving and plants bring life to the black fireplace for an edgy yet comfortable look.
Go Big And Go Home
This living room centers around the large brick fireplace perfectly. To achieve balance, the accents breathe new life to the traditional look of the brick with plants and rattan furniture. This is a great way to leave a piece of a classic home intact and embrace the brick fireplace in all its glory.
Keep It Light
Alongside modern built-ins and sleek leather furniture, this white brick fireplace looks as fresh as ever. We love how playful and unique this look is while still feeling accessible to recreate in any home.
If your brick fireplace could use a refresh, a quick solution is a fresh coat of paint. Black or white keeps the space neutral, or add a pop of color with a teal, sage green or yellow.
A livable, sleek space is immediately upgraded with vintage trinkets and, of course, this extensive white fireplace. Each piece featured tells its own story and adds so much character to the space—fireplace included. It reads equally warm, simple, and clean, and adds the perfect finishing touch to the space.
