The screened-in porch has a stone fireplace and a swing for lazy days and chilly nights. Designers used a a semi-transparent gray stain for the ceiling's wood paneling that allows the wood grain to be visible and matches the tones of the stonework.
Screened porches serve as another living room, and these mantels can be stunning as well. Simply paint your mantle a color that complements the rest of the fireplace. Then separate a pair of hurricane candleholders to help fill the space. You can find hurricane candleholders for less than $25, and stores such as World Market sell them for less than $10 each.
The fireplace screen captures a natural, modern aesthetic and mimics the look of branches, coordinating with the wood slab coffee table. Hardwood fireplace surround, a floating mantel and a matching wooden armchair complete the design.
A 1920s fireplace mantel is the true showpiece of this living room and features a custom-designed fire screen. Gold in the screen is echoed in the glass coffee table and accessories throughout the space.
A 450-sqaure-foot screened porch was added to this 1980s home to create space for indoor-outdoor living. The porch features large sliding doors that connect it to the family room and a gorgeous stone fireplace for chilly nights.
To give your room a cozy feel for free, rethink how you arrange the furniture. For example, is there a spare chair in another room that you can pull beside the fireplace? For this room, Mosaic Group [Architects and Remodelers] positioned the furniture to address the fireplace, creating a salon effect where several people could settle in for conversation.
