Bohemian Fireplaces to Warm Your Heart!

| No Comments

Baby, it’s cold outside!  Vintage Renewal wants to warm you up in style.  We rounded up the most inspiring bohemian fireplace styles in preparation of the chilly months ahead!

We will start with our favorite Built-in Fireplaces.  These are the typical fireplaces you see in most homes.  They are built right into the wall and connect to a chimney that funnels the smoke out of the house safely. 

The white painted stone and animal prints are wildly interesting in this room below:

Deeply painted blue walls, leather chairs and animal heads make this fireplace pop off the charts:

Pinwheel bunting, vintage botanicals and adorable floral styling using nothing but recycled glass jars.  Drool worthy:

Next, we rounded up some adorable ideas for those of you with Non-Functioning Built-in’s below:

Use firewood!  Even if you can't make a fire, the rustic styling of wood in the fireplace adds instant warm and cozy boho style.

Another category that has us excited are Freestanding Fireplaces.  Freestanding Fireplaces do not have quite as much construction required and use vent pipes that act as chimneys.  So it's easy to put them in if your house didn't come with a fireplace and you want that warm and cozy feeling.

In this room, a collection of ethnic masks, a pastel rug and a rustic table are all making us fall in love:

Why not heat up your bedroom with a wood stove, silloute art and an Indian inspired bedspread.  This arrangement equals love all the way to us!

The silver freestanding fireplace is bringing in the modern, but vintage vibe in this West Elm styled room.  We are loving the geometric art, the matching pillow and throw, along with that special splash of zebra.
