During the holidays, the fireplace really becomes the central focus of the home. Whether there are stockings hung or just a warm blazing fire, the fireplace takes center stage during these winter months. A fireplace can easily become a show stopper by adding a natural stone surround. Featured below is a high contrast transitional fireplace with a white calacatta marble surround and matte grey wood work. It is a jaw-dropping center piece for this family room, put together by M.E Beck Designs

In this warm traditional master bedroom, they have added a quartzite fireplace surround in warm tones to go with the taupe colors of the room. The palette of the stone is so reflective of the palette of the fire that it feels as if the flames burn year round and the delicate garland draped from the mantle, breaths a holiday feel.

 Here at Aria we hope you have a warm and happy holidays and a bright new year.
