Top 2012 Design Trend: Sexy Fireplaces

As any good designer will tell you, the fireplace is the focal point of a room.  Each of these fireplaces were boring, builder spec’s that came with the house/condo and hardly worth focusing on.

New firebox inserts come in many interesting sizes now that can achieve a much larger view of the flames.  Surround the firebox with a stone that is fitting to the home’s interior (marble, bluestone or black slate), create a mantle surface, add some storage, and why not celebrate the chimney with a wall covering?  Now that’s a focal point in any room!
