Is A Black Fireplace My Final Descent into Goth?

 Top Black Fireplace :: House of Valentina

When we moved to Copenhagen I didn't own a single piece of black clothing.  Fast forward six years and about 3/4 of my wardrobe is black.  I've painted my living room black, my studio an almost black grey, and I've even started painting my nails black.  I've gone to the dark side.

When I started contemplating a black fireplace, I wondered if this was my final descent into goth.

I once heard someone say that wearing black was a sign of depression.  If that is true then there are a lot of depressed Europeans (and New Yorkers, too!)  Personally, I am of the persuasion that black is a sign of sophistication.  It adds warmth to a room and a touch of grandeur.  It's like a classic black blazer that goes with everything.  Dress it up or get cozy.  Either way, black is forever.

If you like a black fireplace, consider painting your own mantel and even the wall behind it.  You could also order a new mantel.  There are loads of marble antique mantels available.  An electric fireplace could be an easy fix!

But don't let me be the judge.  Take a peek and see if you love a black fireplace...
