Painted Brick & Stone Fireplace Inspiration

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!

The sun has been out the past few days and it has been so pretty! We’ve had such great weather this winter. I know so many of you are still buried in snow and we barely even saw a flake all winter! The Pacific Northwest is the best kept secret, I think. While we do get rain here, we also have pretty mild weather year round which means we aren’t often buried in snow in the winter or suffering from heat waves in the summer! I can’t complain about that!

Everything just feels so much cheerier when the sun is out, doesn’t it? Last week I stopped in Trader Joe’s for a couple of things and I ended up filling my whole cart with flowers! I couldn’t resist. I got home and started puttering around the house, setting little bouquets here and there and now I’m convinced spring really must be around the corner. I’m pretty excited about getting outside and working on my yard again!

Happy Monday, friends. I hope you will get a little spring sunshine in your corner of the world, too!
