Fireplaces are both an architectural focal point, as well as a cosy hub of the home. They are a place for loved ones to gather during colder months, or a peaceful retreat at the end of a long day. Every year, as we approach the cooler months, we take a look at upcoming fireplace trends, but what about those timeless designs, classic fireplace surrounds which continue to feel like a focal point no matter how the room around them changes.  

Classic Marble

Perhaps the material many think of when discussing timeless fireplace designs, marbles like Carrara have been used for centuries because of their durability, beauty and ability to adapt to changing interior styles. Even the most ornate marble fireplaces have a timelessness to them. In fact, an ornate marble fireplace surround, in a room styled with a mix of modern and traditional pieces can look particularly impressive.   

Edgy Black

A black granite, marble or Belgium black fossil limestone fireplace is both edgy and timeless. It is a bold choice, but this means it can withstand changes in room design. It can be given a modern lift surrounded by sleek furniture and bright colours, or it will anchor a more traditionally styled room with soft furnishings and heritage wallpapers. 

Timeless Limestone

Limestone is another natural stone that has been used to create fireplaces for centuries. It’s softer and has a more neutral tone than marbles and granites which means using limestone makes a room feel rich and warm. A limestone fireplace works perfectly with a room filled with varying textures and shapes, and both neutral and richer colour palettes.

This is so sad to read. Another local festival will be no more 😔To those attending this years The Beacon Festival have the BEST TIME! And congrats to our May Issue Competition winners Sean from Lewknor and Nick from Watlington! Enjoy 🎉It’s an incredibly difficult time for the festival industry, with a record 42 festivals having announced a postponement, cancellation or complete closure in 2024. Despite tricky conditions, Beacon Festival is going ahead in under two weeks time – which we cannot wait for! This year, our stages will look a little different, but we promise the same wonderful Beacon vibes as every year. However, the Beacon team have had to make a tough decision in light of skyrocketing festival expenses: Beacon Festival 2024 will be the last. We’d like to thank all of our loyal festival-goers who have supported us over the years and made Beacon what it is today. We’d love you to come and join us for one last time, and celebrate the final Beacon Festival with us, 21-22 June. Let’s make it a party to remember! Day and weekend tickets still available. Kids under 14 go free 👉https://www.beaconfestival.net/2024-ticketsFull announcement here: https://www.beaconfestival.net/lastbeacon2024 ... See MoreSee Less
