15 Painted Brick Fireplaces That Radiate Coziness
We’re talking #fireplacegoals.
IMHO, the best part about cooler weather is the coziness that accompanies the chilly nights — furry blankets, hot drinks and a crackling fire. The fireplace, which sits sad and silent for so much of the year, comes to life in all its blazing glory, and suddenly all is right in the world.
As the nights progressively grow colder, I can’t help but anticipate my first fire of the year. Right now, the anticipation is making me a little bit fireplace-obsessed. I can’t get enough of painted brick fireplaces. They’re fresh and stylish yet classic and timeless. Check out 15 of my favorites, and prepare for some major #fireplaceenvy.

A transitional living room is softened by large comfortable seating and a lush Flokati rug.
