Keep it simple

 

A fireplace needn’t to have a sophisticated surrounding to be beautiful.

Unframed or framed with simple materials as brick stone or undetailed natural stone or surrounded with wooden beams,… these fireplaces look very inviting to gather around !

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Greet. I love the simplicity of these fireplaces and I'm especially drawn to Verplancke Haarden's fireplace. There's something quite alluring about ancient wood.

  5. Beautiful and so true, there is no need to clutter an already pretty wall with too many photos, paintings or in one case, dead animal heads :)
    The 4th photo and the 3 last photos are my favorites . I would be happy with any one of those rooms ~
