Our current interior trends are some of cleanliness and simplicity, and these trendy examples of modern fireplace surrounds showcase just how incredible stripping down our homes can be. Instead of an over-the-top mantel design, we’re shifting our focus to cleaner lines and open space. There’s been a big focus on highlighting high-quality stone and sturdy wood shelving. In addition, many designers are choosing to keep the sides of the fireplace open instead of inundating the wall with built-in shelves or exaggerated artwork.

These are only a few tips of many that inspire these gorgeous living rooms that have committed to this shift in design so exuberantly.
