Fireplaces have become a celebrated feature in many homes. There is much scope for experimenting with different ways to use – or decorate! – a fireplace. Whilst nothing is better in the throes of winter than curling up in front of a warming fire, they also provide a scope for creativity throughout the rest of the year. Fill the hearth with candles for a contemporary look (or if you’re not too confident at building fires just yet). Alternatively fill them with houseplants or a vase of flowers for something more summery. Some are lucky to already have beautiful antique fireplaces still in place in their homes. Others of us are on a reclamation mission to re-install all those wonderful historical features we ripped out in the 1970s in the name of modernity! Many fire surrounds can be fitted with ease around existing hearths but even a brand new fireplace can be installed if you’re keen to use it as a centrepiece. Enjoy some of the most beautiful antique fire surrounds on Vinterior below and get inspired!
