Fireplace design challenge

Recommended Posts

Ok girls.... My fireplace has always been a design challenge for me. What would you do differently? It's a two way fireplace, the other side is our dining room.

Hmmmm... I'm so creatively challenged... but if you don't mind creating a bit more "seperation" what if you hung drapes of some sort over each side frfom the ceiling to create more of a cozy enclosed look around the fireplace? Not sure if i'm explaining what i mean very well... im tryingg haha

I think you may need a table or something to connect the fireplace to the wall. That way you're sort of dividing the room without closing off light and making it feel smaller. A narrow but long table that is the same width as the fireplace would be perfect. Then you could put some sort of table covering on it to close off the lower portion... Add some plants to the table also helps give some separation without closing off the space.

You know what, I have never seen a fireplace like this. I like it I wouldnt change it. Its a really nice focul point. Maybe dress up the walls around it a little more so the fireplace looks a little bit closer to everything and not by itself in the middle of everything. If that makes sense.

I tried that with the shelf off to the side, you can see that didn't work out so well. I like the half wall type thing idea, I just really like the flow between the two rooms. UGH this is so hard... I've changed the darn thing so many times and I'm still not happy with it.

what if you just add some plants, maybe even some that drape over the sides? or a small tree-type thing (real or fake) on one of the sides.

 

or how about some kind of curtain suspended from the ceiling, similar to what someone already suggested. awful drawing, but i am having fun! (wow, i really need to start working)
