Tips on How to Find the Right Fireplace to Match Your Décor and Style
A person’s home is an intimate reflection of their lifestyle, passions and above all, personality. If you look around you, does your living room or kitchen have elements that match how you live your life? Find your personality type below for ideas on how to refurnish, renovate or add new architectural anchors like fireplaces and stone range hoods to put a piece of yourself into a space and truly feel at home.
- Organizationally inclined?
- Like structure?
- Prefer clean lines?
- A multitasker?
Type A personalities are always on the go and prefer over achievement to underachievement. In design, this can translate to a fireplace that can multitask. Want to change your living room arrangement down the line? A fireplace perfect for a Type A personality should work regardless of any style changes. No challenge is too daunting for the Type A personality and no fireplace should be tied down to any one style.
Consider fireplaces and stone range hoods with clean lines and simple elements. When it comes to decorating around your fireplace, white shades can make a room look larger and clean, but can also attract dirt. If every-day cleaning doesn’t fit into your schedule, then lean towards darker colored fabrics or accent with dark colored furniture and art. Our Normandy fireplace with overmantel is a perfect example of understated elegance.
