Row homes in Philadelphia have a centuries-old history, and the homeowner does a wonderful job of keeping with the home’s original bones. A brick fireplace in the corner is now a design feature, offering texture in the room, and a space for a vignette of collected pieces, from favorite books, to an antique mirror.
The white fireplace surround lightens the look of the black fireplace and mounted TV. Candles and trinkets set on the mantel give a personal touch to the display and fill the empty wall. A storage basket and cube floor cushion bring a touch of texture to the design.
A modern patterned wallpaper print was installed to draw attention to the fireplace, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. The fireplace and mantel were entirely reworked and surrounded with the bold, contrasty wallpaper to create an accent wall that ties in visually with the trim, door and furnishings. Cozy neutral furniture with a tufted finish is brightened with yellow throw pillows.
A neutral area rug pads the open floor space in this comfy living room set up. Neutral arm chairs and a gray-brown sectional turn in toward the fireplace and mounted TV. A white topped coffee table pulls the white of the fireplace surround into the room and highlights the midcentury modern design inspiration.
A closer look at the living room fireplace reveals a custom shiplap surround, which Bria Hammel Interiors added to breathe new life into the old feature. Meanwhile, two chairs with a small blue pattern complement the artwork and the area rug.

A white marble fireplace surround serves as a focal point in this open transitional living room. The dark hardwood floor is complemented by a dark wood coffee table, while the white sofa provides welcome contrast.
This playroom exudes personality — from the initials on the wall to the deer art and graphic rug. School locker-inspired cabinets provide a great storage space for toys and supplies and also serve as a place to display art, candles and a lamp. The fireplace and wicker chair add a homey feel to the room.
The neutral colors and style of this white fireplace mantel and stone hearth make it very versatile. Almost any type of artwork and accessories can be added to change out the look and feel of the room. We choose to decorate the space with a mix of earth-tone accessories with antiques.
This long modern fireplace is framed with a white surround lightening the look as it blends with the rest of the room. A simple floating mantel separates the mounted flatscreen TV. Natural wood floating shelves on either side of the fireplace set up add color with personal decor.
