My latest obsession has been browsing Pinterest and ogling those dreamy whitewashed fireplaces that look like they have existed forever. There’s something pretty fantastic about how they can transform a space into an effortlessly chic and casual space that you can definitely picture yourself enjoying no matter the season. In the fall and winter months you can keep a fire roaring, and they’ll feel cozy and warm, while in the spring and summer months they’ll make a gorgeous focal point and keep your space feeling fresh and bright.
A pretty versatile trend, the whitewashed brick can give your existing fireplace an update that works with a more modern décor style OR on the opposite end of the design spectrum, can also work perfectly with traditional décor.
To achieve this lovely look, check out these tutorials to help whitewash your existing stone fireplace. Or call my dad and he’ll build you one (but don’t tell him your plans of painting it…)
