We love keeping up to date on all the latest design trends. Here, we’ve compiled the latest trends of 2020 and how to work them around your fireplace as a focal point.
Pantone’s Colour of the Year has kicked grey off the top spot, with blue now the hue of choice and trending for interiors that want to keep up-to-date. If you want to read more about what Classic Blue has to offer, and how to get blue into your interior, we’ve written a useful article about making a bold statement with blue in your living space.

Forget fuchsia and magenta pinks – we’re talking muted tones to keep your interior soft and classy. When paired with neutral furnishings and complementary accessories, pink adds a touch of sophistication.
In the room below, the pale pink armchairs keep us on trend, but still allow the room those cosy vibes, with the Sheraton 5 electric stove taking centre stage.
Whilst Pantone’s choice for 2020 is a bold blue, Dulux are taking it down a shade or two, with the Dulux Colour of the Year being Tranquil Dawn. It’s a gentle, soft green which according to Dulux is all about understanding ‘what it is to be human.’ It’s about reconnecting with others, and provides a comforting tone to keep us calm during frantic times of life.
The pale green in this room below complements the inset Riva 66 wood burning fire, offering a feeling of natural charm and relaxation.
Texture is making another appearance, whether that’s in soft furnishings, or by mix and matching accessories around the home. If your home is fairly neutral, accessories with plenty of texture are a great way of giving your interior some personality.
Try adding texture to your home by using the material of your mantel as a guide. In this room, we’ve emulated the mantel in the texture of the vase, and in the accents on the chairs. By doing this, your eye is drawn to the centrepiece – the Chesterfield 5 Wide wood burning stove.
Have a look at some of our stone and wood mantels for ideas on incorporating texture around your fireplace.
