Even though we are having 60 degree temperatures, fireplace weather is just around the corner. I have an amazing collection of great fireplaces. Too many for one blog post. Whatever the season a fireplace is a focal point for the room and all of these images have outstanding fireplaces. Whatever your decor I am sure you will find plenty of inspiration.
This one is very unusual with the over mantle built out the same depth as the fireplace. Love the cornice on the top.
For a less formal fireplace this design has interesting proportions.
Decorators Supply has a wonderful fireplace piece very similar to this.
#27092 Flemish Plaster Shield 35-1/2″ x 12-5/8″ $223.37
Simple panel above a gorgeous fireplace. Effective use of wall color with the furnishings.
The mirror, fireplace screen and candelabras really make this fireplace stunning.
The Fireplace and Mirror combination offers endless possibilities.

If you have a plain fireplace, adding swags is a great addition.
This is a fireplace and cabinet makeover we did using composition ornament.
I love the fireplace but the over mantle treatment doesn’t work for me.
