Less Is More 

Minimalist interiors are ideal for people who consider elegance in simple things, perfect to form spaces that breathe peace and tranquility. 

Transforming spaces into a minimalist design has been an ongoing trend, so if you admire the Scaninavian look, then keeping your fireplace simple, yet cozy is the perfect thing to do. 

Simple fireplace for any decor style

 To get a minimalist look around your fireplace, the key is to create a sophisticated design composed with a touch of natural elements. 

Try adding some wall decor above your fireplace. We recommend placing a few of our Binga Baskets to create a simple, yet beautiful look. These beautiful Binga Baskets are handmade by the Tonga and Binga tribes and are made using palm leaves. 

Express your personality and combine a few different sizes and patterns of the Binga Baskets. They will add an authentic touch to your minimalistic space. 

Surround The Fireplace With Textures 

Texture is an amazing element to use in interior design which is often overlooked. Using texture in a space allows you to create stylish interiors, especially when it comes to decorating around your fireplace.

Using textures around this space can add an extra charm, creating a warm and comforting atmosphere. Our interior designers love to use a mixture of natural textures with a Scandinavian twist. 

Try adding our Recycled Teak Stool for a simple way to add some texture. These recycled teak stools are ideal near a fireplace and are multifunctional, too! Beautiful and providing a rustic vibe, these stools can be used as a side table, decoration, as well as a form of seating when you have guests. 

Display Some Nature 

There is no denying how much life plants can introduce in any space. If your fireplace is purely for decorative purposes, displaying some greenery will be the perfect way to add some life. 

Placing various plants in your home can boost your productivity, reduce stress as well as adding a splash of colour to your space. Try placing a few plants above your fireplace using terracotta pots to keep that warmth and cozy atmosphere.

Extra Seating Space

Usually the areas beside the fireplace are empty spaces with no purpose, but this space can easily be transformed into something both functional and attractive. 

If you often have guests over, it is an excellent idea to transform the empty spaces next to your fireplace into a beautiful built-in seating area. Add some warmth to your new seating space by adding some of our gorgeous pillows and cushions or trendy Moroccan poufs

Pillows and cushions are a quick and easy solution to change the appearance of your space. Simply add a few different pillows using neutral tones to get the ultimate cozy feel.
