Room Design: Fireplace Focal Point

As you probably already know, every room needs a focal point, whether it be a beautiful stone fireplace or treasured piece of art work. In addition to adding interest to the space, a focal point  gives the room a visual anchor. It’s this anchor that  holds the room together and makes all the other decorative elements have a cohesive look. If you have a lovely fireplace mantel, but have no idea about what to do with it, here are a few suggestions to get you started:

1. Traditional

2. Modern and Bright

3. Simple Sophistication
