    Warm up the fireplace If you’re reinstating the surround of an old fireplace, it’s important to think about the materials you go for. Do as our ancestors did and choose marble, stone or cast iron for principal rooms, and either wood or cast iron for secondary or private spaces, such as bedrooms. As a rule of thumb, you should avoid removing the fireplace in a reception room. This is because it adds a focal point to the room and creates valuable air circulation in an old house. If your disused fireplace is draughty, you can buy inflatable chimney balloons that you fit to the inside of the flue.

    Frame a chimneybreastThe alcoves on either side of a fireplace are the ideal place for a pair of decorative mirrors. Make sure you get the proportions right, like these grand, arched designs that frame perfectly the handsome fireplace and imposing artwork above it.

    The living room is the most relaxed space in the house, with plump sofas and a slightly more traditional aesthetic kept on the contemporary side by the pale, neutral palette. The light-enhancing mirrors nod to the square Georgian window panes.

    Tile inside near the fireplace insert and maybe a concrete for the outer layer

    Might be too modern, but such a glam look!
