One project I am looking forward to tackling in our new house is the dining room, and in particular the wall with the fireplace. Since moving away from home to go to college, I have not had a fireplace of my own and I have a lot of grand plan on what I want this to look like. You can check out a few ideas on my Fireplace Inspiration board on Pinterest. Today I wanted to share a few of my favorites as I work in planning the overall look. So first off, this is what our dining room looks like on move in day.
One thing you may already know, especially if you saw my post in February with my navy dining room mood board, is that I have been playing around with the idea of a navy accent wall or entire room. We have committed to this idea and bought the navy paint already. Progress pictures coming soon The plan is navy walls with a white fireplace, like the one below.
I also love the idea of re-tiling the inside of the fireplace with some beautiful tile like the image below. I love the shimmer and grey tones coming through. It is so clean and simple with the white wood surround.
More navy! What I really like about this one is that the windows are really close and flanking the fireplace like in our room. It gives me some hope that we can dress the windows and hopefully look half this good.
Another idea that I have been considering is using Airstone on the fireplace. I plan to use it to cover the lower wall on the bar side of the dining room, so it might look nice to have it on the fireplace too, but in the grey tone it comes in. The best part is how cheap and easy this product is to install.
I really love the simplicity of this fireplace and the beautiful mirror. Maybe a mirror above our fireplace?
And one more navy example… I love the addition of the rug too!
