It’s a long winter, so a fireplace is a must! Unlike North American homes, Scandinavian fireplaces do not usually take center- stage in the middle of one wall. They were never meant to be ornate centerpieces with mantles to decorate. Rather, these fireplaces were functional and meant to provide warmth and a place to cook.
Fireplaces create an ambience and keep us warm when it’s cold outside, they are one of the coziest pieces for any room. You can create a special nook around your fireplace, it’s especially cool when you don’t have much space but want to feel the coziness and warmth sitting next to it. When I see these nooks, I only think of curling there till spring comes because they are so gorgeous! Soft seats or even daybeds next to a fireplace or hearth, cushions on the floors or dining zones next to the fire – this is the comfiest place in the world after your bed in the morning. Have a look at the ideas and design your own one.
Fireplaces are actual more than ever now because it’s rather chilly outside and there’s nothing better than sitting next to a fireplace in such weather. Malm fireplaces are iconic and nobody can blame you for loving the design. Coming from one of the original manufacturers of freestanding fireplaces and the only one still in existence today, these classical designs offer a multitude of advantages. There are various types and colors – for indoors and outdoors, bigger or smaller ones, in lots of different colors – these fireplaces are fantastic in any space and you can find your variant easily. Choose a bright one to make it a focal point in the room or a calm one to blend into the surroundings.
One important element of mantel decorating is how you balance your objects in the space. Symmetry brings your eye across the mantel, which is better for a more streamlined, simple approach. For homes with a more classic and conservative aesthetic, this is a popular look. If you prefer a more modern style, vary the height of your accessories to achieve the look that best fits your personality. You’ll also want to pay attention to scale so that your statement pieces don’t overwhelm the space. Play around with different shapes, textures and colors to discover the right proportions. You may be surprised how much you like the look of a bold pop of color or a tall statement piece.
