10 Cozy Bedrooms with a Fireplace

An ideal bedroom is a place that feels like your own personal sanctuary. You want it to be warm, comfortable and relaxing. Having a bedroom fireplace not only adds character to the space, but also helps cultivate a calming atmosphere.

Fireplaces are always great architectural features for any room. Even if you don’t want to use it as an actual fireplace, you can fill it with wood or candles to still get the same charming look without the maintenance. Or if your bedroom doesn’t have one but you don’t want to install a full fireplace, a mantel or faux fireplace can achieve the same effect.

Here are 10 bedrooms with a fireplace that show how much character and charm they add to the room, as well as how versatile they can be in terms of style.

Home Tour: Alec Baldwin’s 18th Century Farmhouse

Actor Alec Baldwin has owned a farmhouse in Amagansett, East Hampton since 1995, but he recently renovated it with his wife Hilaria to turn it into the peaceful, family retreat that it is today. The home is full of soft neutrals and rustic touches that create a sense of serenity. While the design elements are all upscale and elegantly crafted, the atmosphere is actually quite modest and comfortable.

They live in the home with their three kids, all of whom are under the age of 3, so there is plenty of room for them to spread their wings and for their parents to entertain large amounts of guests. It is simultaneously cozy and able to support big gatherings, making it the perfect home for a growing family.

Take a peek inside this gorgeous farmhouse that was featured in Elle Decor to get some great inspiration.

Simply Chic Scandinavian Decor Ideas

Scandinavian decor has made its way across the globe to America where it is seeing a surge in popularity. This look adopts a lot from modern style with a few key distinctions of its own, including bare wood (especially in light tones), white and gray palettes with minimal color, and a minimalist sensibility.

Bloggers picked up on Scandinavian style when IKEA, a Dutch home decor company, became popular in the States. Since then, it became a trend that can now be found in many mainstream home decor stores including Target, whose latest lines have been increasingly Scandinavian in nature.

If you love clean lines and a subdued color palette, this look could be perfect for you. Even if you don’t want to go full-on with Scandinavian decor, there are certain elements you can pull from the style to add some of its charm to other styles you love. Check out these 10 beautiful Scandinavian decor ideas to inspire you.
