What to do...

In our new place one of the design dilemmas I will be attacking will be what to do above or around our corner fireplace.  I love the simple look, but I don't want it to look boring.  I don't have any pictures of our exact fireplace but here is the closest thing to it (except ours doesn't have a mantle)...

Do you have any thoughts on what to do with it?


  1. I love that fireplace! I would think a metal cross or something sculptural would be perfect on a curved fireplace.

  2. Could you add a mantle of some sort? Maybe out of cedar? It is so sculptural in itself that I would not want to do too much to it. Maybe add some cozy pillows on the hearth, place candles or a big clam shell in the fireplace opening?

  3. Ok, this is an old post, so sorry for the late comment. I saw the actual pic of your fireplace and the first thing I thought of was Kyle Richard's fireplace. I tried to find a still shot but only found a video. You can see her corner fireplace at about minute 1:08 or so.


Thanks for commenting! Hope you enjoy what you read and love what you see!
