Which is why this article will serve as a great way to inspire and influence your interior design skills, especially if you’re trying to design a small room around a fireplace.
1 Color Splash
We love this amazing use of color to brighten up this small breakfast nook. It brings a sense of brightness and really showcases the space in a colorful minimalistic way. The inclusion of the rustic floors and vintage rug, with the modern pop art feel of the art and yellow fireplace, it really comes together in a unique and creative way.
2 Classic Mod
This very traditional space is opened up because of the white fireplace, it adds warmth without cluttering the space with darker colors. The balance of this room is very livable and comfortable, making space feel cozy.
3 Bring On The Florals
Interior design is very important especially when it comes to utilizing a small space like this with tons of natural light. Playing with colors is much more possible in a space that has natural light because the light will act as the key to opening up the space to make it appear bigger. The amazing classic fireplace is a great addition to this space, it fits perfectly as to the focal point.
4 Finding The Balance
In some cases where space is close to being an open floor plan, you have to find a way to divide up space in a fair way that doesn’t seem too cluttered. In this case, the designer decided to create a dining table space on one side of the room and a living area centered in front of the fireplace.
5 A Dining Room Twist
You don’t always have to surround a fireplace with a living room, especially if it’s in a small space. You can design a space that works as a small breakfast nook or dining room, it’s a great and interesting dynamic that creates a unique space.
6 Boho Chic
There’s always a cozy space when you combine a bedroom element with a fireplace. While this room is a bit small for a master bedroom, it works, because of how the fireplace creates such an intimate and fresh vibe for the entirety of the room. We also love how they’ve kept the colors light and simple, opening up space even more.
7 Minimalist Dreams
A small minimalist space will always look and feel bigger, but when you include a focal fireplace in the space, your need for additional decoration on the walls and surrounding areas is much less needed. If you’re the kind of person that likes to keep things simple, this is the perfect inspiration for you!
8 The Corner Nook
Sometimes in older homes or if you just want to bring in a rustic feel, log burners are the way to go, especially if you have a very small space. They’re actually very trendy right now and they will bring together space in a cozy and simple way.
We love the white and grey accented walls with the black ornate fireplace. The contrast really brings the place together especially with the mix of natural materials and tones. This is a great option for you if you love a more bold space that is classically timeless in the modern age of design.

This example is a great way to focus on a space that keeps in simple, livable, comfortable, and opens up the space to make the most out of its limitations.
