Generally, the outside of your house dictates the type of decor inside the house. This in turn reflects the type of fire and fireplaces suitable for that particular room.
However, today’s trends are contradicting these rules where you can
have a contemporary setting within a traditional building. The
combination of decor, furniture and fireplace will contribute to the
overall character of the room.
With fireplaces, materials such as white marble and limestone
together with straight lines and square edges portray a minimalistic
look. Chrome and brushed steel fires would compliment these types of
fireplaces and would create a modern contemporary designer look.
