Sadie stella: Building it in Love the black fireplace brick! For my birthday, my husband told me that he was going to build a fireplace in our living room because he knows that I have always wanted one. When I saw this picture I fell in love with the black fireplace brick. I thought it was a great twist on a classic look.
My style has always leaned towards modern with a little sprinkle of eccentricity. That’s probably why I was so drawn to this fireplace. I remember when I was growing up our fireplace had the classic red brick lining the inside as well as the outside of the fireplace. In fact, the hearth was made of the same red brick. It was almost brick overload.
This fireplace reminded me of those childhood memories except it added a bit of flair and expressed exactly how I wanted to showcase my adult years.
Another nice thing about using black brick is that you don’t notice the ash as much. If you have ever owned or seen a wood burning fireplace you know exactly what I mean. That soot gets everywhere and is extremely hard to clean from brick. Use black and you don’t have to fret.
