Painted Brick & Stone Fireplace Inspiration

White Brick Fireplace with MantelBHG

We are so excited to have two fireplaces in our home, one in the basement and one on the main floor. The lower level fireplace is brick and was already painted white (by the previous owner), you can check it out in the post I did yesterday (shown below).

The upper level fireplace is stone, you can see it above.

I’m not sure yet what we are going to do with our fireplaces, especially the one on the main level. I don’t mind stone, but it just doesn’t feel right to me in this case so I’m exploring our options. We could paint, white wash, add trim and built-ins or completely redesign the size and shape. The options are endless, well, endless within the boundaries of our budget and ability to change or enhance it :).

I’ve been gathering fireplace inspiration so I thought I would share ideas with you today. Some would work for our home, some wouldn’t, but I thought you might enjoy these ideas anyway!

{Inspiration} Fillable Glass Lamps

Summer House Tour - The Inspired Room

Remember when I said I was having trouble finding large glass lamps, so I resorted to my DIY glass bottle lamp?

Well, HomeGoods surprised me recently and had tons of pretty and large lamps, including these lovely glass lamps I put on my console cabinet! YAY!

They aren’t as huge as my glass jar lamp, but still a really nice size. It’s nice to have a big statement lamp or two in a room!

And the bonus of these beautiful glass lamps? They have a cork “lid” that comes off so you can fill the jar with something festive if you want to! I’ve seen similar lamps to these at Target recently. You can find them here!

I like them just simple and empty, too, but I can imagine it would be fun to fill them with pretty Christmas decor, seashells, driftwood, pinecones, postcards, books, mementos or even use them like a little terrarium. Or maybe I would opt for faux plants or flowers, just so they would be stress free! I haven’t filled mine with anything yet, but I did a little searching for inspiration. I’m sure I’ll be trying some of these out for myself!

Below you can find some beautiful Pottery Barn lamps I really like with ideas of possible ways to fill them.
