Fireplace trends help create attractive, comfortable rooms

H

aving a fireplace in your home is a wonderful thing, particularly on chilly days. In addition to providing sources of ambient heat , they also adding style to indoor spaces and are among the most prominent features buyers look for while viewing listings. Fireplaces can be traditional and burn wood or connect to a home’s natural gas supply for on-demand ambiance. What’s more, they may come in vented or ventless varieties, depending on homeowners’ preferences and what is allowed by community building codes. That means a chimney or flue may not be needed — expanding the list of rooms where a fireplace can be installed. Certain trends have emerged among fireplace fans in recent years. Here’s a look at what’s getting consumers fired up about these home decor elements.

COVER STORY

Minimalist style:

Many fireplaces are designed in neutral colors with minimal trim that directs focus on the fire and not the appliance. When the fireplace is not in use, it blends in with surroundings and will not compete for attention with other design elements.

Convertible fireplaces:

Homeowners can choose between open or sealed fireplaces. A convertible fireplace enables homeowners to have the best features of these options. A convertible fireplace can be converted to wood from gas, or the opposite, in as little as 30 minutes.

Nature-inspired materials:

Natural stone continues to be a material of choice in fireplace surrounds. Light colors work well for a fireplace, and also fit with today’s lighter color interior design preferences. Natural stone also works perfectly with both contemporary and rustic decor.

Vintage fireplaces:

Vintage continues to be a buzzword in 2022, and the choice to go vintage also applies to fireplace styles. A room decorated in vintage elements can be complemented with a vintage fireplace or one designed to look vintage.

Fireplaces that are built right into a wall save space. One can have a television and a fireplace on the same wall. These types of fireplaces work well in modern home designs. Other fireplaces may be built into

pillars. The glass setting allows the burner to be viewed from all angles, ensuring the ambient effect infiltrates the entire space. To get the best of both worlds, install a double-sided fireplace into an exterior wall which will enable you to harness the beauty of fire in both your indoor and outdoor living spaces at the same time.

Having plants in your home and office has many benefits

T

he lines between the outdoors and indoors are being blurred. Homeowners build extensive outdoor living spaces so they can relax on weatherresistant furniture and even cook in lavish kitchens in their backyards. In addition, indoor three-season rooms full of bright, open windows that showcase outdoor vistas challenge the boundaries between outside and inside. For those working with limited budgets, there are some easy, inexpensive ways to enjoy the majesty of natural landscapes indoors. Houseplants can be used to improve indoor spaces, and they also provide various health benefits.

certain houseplants can combat the potentially harmful effects of volatile organic compounds. Plants may help filter out VOCs like benzene, acetone and formaldehyde, which can enter indoor air via cleaning supplies, dry-cleaned clothes, furniture, printers, and paints.

Improve interior atmosphere

Prevention magazine says plants can be used to screen unattractive areas, moderate room temperature by shading spots from the sun and even reduce noise. Plants also can improve ambiance and create a pleasing atmosphere in a room.

Can improve mood

Help with allergies

According to WebMD, rooms with houseplants tend to have less dust and mold in them than those without any foliage. Leaves and other parts of the plants serve as natural filters, catching airborne particles and allergens. Plants with textured leaves might be especially effective at trapping particles.

The human respiratory system works by bringing in oxygen and releasing

carbon dioxide. Plants do the opposite during photosynthesis. They absorb carbon dioxide and then release oxygen. Plants can put much more oxygen into the air, improving indoor conditions.

Gardeners were more positive mentally. Greenery can help people feel more at home and improve mental health. A rehab center in Norway found patients reported a greater increase in well-being four weeks after having greenery added to their surroundings.

Designer-approved flooring trends for 2022

lean lines are where it’s at this year in flooring. Waterproof options, big tiles and the luxe look of wide planks are in fashion as well. “Everything’s going a little bit cleaner,” Kathryn Gluibizzi, a senior designer for Armstrong Flooring, told Houzz, a hub for interior designers.

quality, using products and adhesives that meet indoor air quality standards. LAMINATES Laminate flooring has also come a long way. Laminate flooring is a layered composite flooring with compressed wood on a fiberwood base, but the top layer looks much more realistic than older laminates. It can even be textured to mimic real wood and compete with the best luxury vinyl planks.

WARM IS IN As far as color goes, palettes are going warmer as spaces get softer and more intimate. Even that standby flooring color, gray, is getting warmer with brown undertones and airy coastal looks. New finishes and materials are allowing for multi-tonal color that brings a richness to your flooring project. Even stone, terrazzo and concrete looks are going for warm, natural colors rather than cool, contemporary shades. STONE Travertine and travertine-like products are still on-trend, in muted, warm shades. Terrazzo is having a moment along with other mid-century design trends. Today’s terrazzo is a composite of quartz, marble, metals or glass in resin or cement. More economical porcelain tile imitations are available.

LUXURY VINYL Look for new flooring options in vinyl planking and tiles. Improved technology means that these durable faux products look more and more like real wood and

stone. Stone polymer composites and rigid-core vinyl tiles offer more durability than older products, and are also easier to clean and keep. New vinyl flooring also takes into consideration environmental

Let the Colors of

HARDWOOD Hardwood flooring is still an option, too, even amid all the talk of new laminates and luxury vinyl. These, too, are trending in warmer tones and hand- scraped surfaces. Look for wider and longer hardwood planking with character-giving knots and cracks that give it a warm, homey feel. Engineered woods are another option in the hardwood space. Engineered products have a natural wood surface with a composite plank and it tends to be less expensive than hardwood. However, it can’t be refinished as many times as traditional hardwood flooring as each refinishing wears through that natural wood exterior.

Inspire You Fall is a time when nature puts on a show. Bright natural colors enhance the landscape like only Mother Nature can. Old Country Tile has made Mother Nature proud by offering rich looking wood tile, stone porcelain that appears like it just came from the quarry, and shimmering glass resembling the surface of a mountain lake. Come see the tile that is fooling Mother Nature.

Make a statement with wallpaper

W

allpaper, that design look from the 1990s that never really went away, is having another moment. Powder rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms are all getting rolls of patterned paper where statement walls once reigned supreme. Here are some wallpaper trends to get stuck on this year.

TEXTURE

Today’s wallpapers aren’t your mother’s country geese. Many of today’s designs feature luxe textures that can give a room a plush feel. And it goes beyond seagrass and fabric-like textures, too. Arte International’s Metal X line looks likes oxidized metal sheeting. Wallpapers also mimic the look of brick, concrete and even rustic woods. Feature these textures on a statement wall in a bedroom for an earthy, relaxing space.

FLORALS

Floral patterns never go out of style, but in today’s biophilic design world, look for patterns that soften the atmosphere. And don’t be afraid to play with bold patterns in small spaces. “As a result of spending more time at home, our clients are more on board with adventurous patterns, texture and bold color, or play with scale and form,” Rosie Ward of Ward & Co. told House Beautiful. Heather Hackett, a design manager at Christy suggests going big with patterns but keeping the tone classic to allow for longevity in your design.

PEEL AND STICK

No longer do you need a professional to hang paper, and you don’t have to live with your bold design choice forever. Peel-andstick wallpaper is getting better every year, and the number of on-trend patterns to

choose from can be overwhelming. These wallpapers can even work in rentals to help make a first apartment a first home. Start out by choosing just one wall, particularly if you’ve chosen a bold color, texture or pattern (and especially if you’ve chosen all three at once). Look for a heavier paper to get the best quality and measure your room carefully to make sure you get enough paper to cover your space. Take into account doors and windows and always order more than you think you’ll need. You may need a couple of extra tools to make the job easier. Always defer to manufacturer instructions, but consider things like a flexible smoothing tool for working out air bubbles and a small craft knife to help you cut the paper. Clean the walls before you start and, if you can, lightly sand the wall to help the wallpaper stick.

primary motivator when attempting DIY home improvements. A survey of more than 1,000 homeowners from the insurance provider Clovered found that 85 percent of respondents indicated a chance to save money as their top reason for attempting a DIY home improvement project. The chance to save money was an even greater motivator for homeowners than the opportunity to improve (79 percent) or repair (66 percent) their homes. Those savings can be significant because homeowners won’t have to pay labor costs, which the renovation experts at www.BobVila.com note can cost anywhere from $20 to $150 per hour per laborer.

Add color and beauty to your autumn garden

C

ORNAMENTAL VEGGIES

olorful flowers aren’t found only in the summer. So many perennials, ground covers and annuals reach their peak during the warmer months, leading most amateur gardeners to assume that fall can’t match their beauty. But a number of plants put on their own breathtaking show of color every autumn. You just need to know which flourish later in the year — and whether your climate will support them.

Ornamental veggie plants can also complement other fall-bloomers. For instance, ornamental kales range in color from white to red with green or purple foliage. Ornamental peppers produce bright red fruits that cover the plant, creating a unique presence in the fallflowering garden.

ORNAMENTAL GRASSES

Ornamental grasses like Purple Fountain Grass generally reach their peak during autumn, adding texture, volume, and color to the fall-flowering garden. Many of these develop seed heads after flowering has ceased, and their foliage turns golden-brown.

SHRUBS AND TREES

Flowers aren’t the only plants that put on a bright and exciting performance after summer memories fade. Lush, green oakleaved hydrangea turn ruby red every autumn. The American yellowwood’s fragrant white blooms will drop off as fall begins, but then the leaves transform into an amazing

Landscapes and gardens don’t have to go dormant in the fall. Many kinds of flowers burst with life long after the beaches empty and swimming pools have closed. New York asters offer bursts of blue, white, pink and purple. Cosmos also remain in bloom from mid-summer into the fall, adding pops of red, pink, white, yellow and orange. Showy stonecrop will perennially turn from pink into a gorgeous crimson as autumn unfolds. Boltonia’s daisy-like flowers boast pinks and whites that will perfectly border any fall garden. Other colorful choices include pot marigolds, panies, celosia, black-eyed Susan, snapdragons and, of course, chrysanthemums in a multitude of colors.

Popular paint colors for 2022 are all about comfort

I

n the world of design, what's old inevitably becomes new again, and a similar pattern is inspiring today's on-trend color palettes for home decor. The latest styles reflect reviving and comforting colors influenced by heritage and romance, lending to a look that is familiar in an individualistic way. With more people living their everyday, working lives at home, many homeowners are discovering the contentment that comes with slowing down. Often that means looking to the past to find comfort for moving forward. Nostalgia serves as an emotional tool that delivers deep-rooted serenity and powerful healing properties. Looking to the past is often beneficial during times of uncertainty and can be an opportunity to bring styles and practices back to the present to create an appreciation of the past. Whether living through the romance of rural lifestyles, the comfort of home or the nostalgia from far-off times, some of today's most beloved design aesthetics celebrate the past, present and future while bringing balance, hope and comfort for you and your family to embrace.

Timeless Color

Using color to evoke feelings and emotions is hardly new but combining a carefully curated color palette with other design elements can allow you to create a look that pays homage to the past while breathing new life into your living space. Reimagining classic, familiar tones allows you to achieve a design motif that is equal parts reminiscent and refreshing.

"The Vintage Homestead Color Collection offers an effortless look that reveals the importance of being hopeful to find stability and balance," said Ashley Banbury, HGTV Home by SherwinWilliams senior color designer. "Our 2023 Color Collection of the Year revives elements from the past that are perfectly paired with vintage, comfortable and classic colors."

Blending Past and Present

Striking a balance between old and new can take many forms, as these styles show: Heritage Revival: An interest in reviving the past is evident in design trends like a remerging appreciation of antiques and vintage elements, such oversized furniture and traditional shapes. To capture this style, your design should focus on contrasting old and new for a mix-and-match look. Ultimately, the aesthetic is a look that feels simultaneously individualistic and curated. A cohesive color scheme can allow the various elements to stand on their own while working in harmony for an intentional design. For example, the HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams 2023 Color Collection of the Year includes a combination of familiar tones that have been thoughtfully curated by design experts who borrow color and design concepts from the past for a hopeful future and a sense of belonging. Hues like Poetry Plum and Hot Cocoa evoke warmth and depth, while moderate shades like Restrained Gold and Glamour offer fresh ways to incorporate mid-range

neutrals. Meanwhile, soft tones like Natural Linen and Cool Beige offer subtle color for lighter, brighter spaces. Mixing and Matching of Eras: A new take on retro design is emerging in which eras are blended and new and old furnishing work side by side. To get this look, you'll craft a space that marries historical and contemporary design, celebrating both the old and new. To design for longevity, incorporate pieces that are ambiguous in era and stand the test of time. Vintage Homestead: Reviving design elements from the past with mixed patterns, classic shapes and vintage decor adds up to comfortable and comforting design. With this trend, prints and patterns encompass a range of styles, reinforcing how interiors connect to fashion. Mixing classic elegance with sleek vintage shapes is refining the concept of polished comfort. To achieve the look, curate pieces in heritage shapes and patterns, along with retro accents. Be sure to incorporate vintage lighting and glass, as well. A versatile color choice like Darkroom, the 2023 Color of the Year from HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams, is an alluring shade that is classic enough for heritage interiors but also modernly retro for a throwback-inspired aesthetic. It's a neutral perfect for creating an eclectic yet modern look inside and out. Indoors, use it on the walls to offset more earthy brown and taupe tones in your furnishings and textiles. Get inspired to combine the past with the present for a comforting design that's all your own.
