Technically it’s still winter but everyone is yearning for spring. So why not cozy up to a fireplace that’s lighter in appearance? Check out these stone fireplaces and white mantel ideas that will warm and cheer you at the same time!
The brick surround in the above fireplace is given a lighter touch with a whitewash effect on the brick. A white painted mantel defines the space and provides a ledge for displaying pretty objects.
Don’t have a fireplace? No worries. Build a brick surround inside a romantic white mantel and fill it with candles. This is so soft and pretty and I can only imagine what the rest of the home looks like!
A pale gray, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace mimics the architectural structure of the adjacent window and helps to balance the room. Such a beautiful space!
You can also fill a faux fireplace surround and mantel with white birch logs. Birch logs are expensive so I grab fallen branches from the yard and give them a dry brush effect with white paint.
Another floor-to-ceiling fireplace is the focal point in this living room. You can enjoy the cozy warmth of the fire while while enjoying all the natural light that this room has to offer.
A white mantel can be fairly easy to find. Antique stores, vintage shops, flea markets, and more are good places to hunt for something vintage and slightly worn looking.
Here a white mantel and fireplace are created from stucco and a painted mantel piece. Does this space look familiar? I recently featured this minimalist style living room.
Do you have a favorite fireplace or mantel idea from this post? I think the third one is my favorite – or maybe it’s just the room itself!
