The other day, I was perusing my 'pins' and I noticed a trend - black fireplaces. I like the contrast. I like the masculine edge. Especially against a neutral backdrop, it can really create a dramatic effect.
In the above three photos, I especially like how the touches of pink, cream and gold soften the spaces which contrasts with the masculine feel of the fireplace.
Carrie from Hazardous Design recently painted her fireplace a dark color and it turned out fantastic.

I admit painting a fireplace black would be stepping out of my comfort zone. I think I would typically want to play it safe and go with a traditional white one, but I'm trying to push myself a bit and force myself to take some risks.
So, how about you - would you consider a black fireplace in your home?
