I do have a thing for symmetry when styling my home.
Pairs of vases, chairs, candlesticks, paintings etc etc.
Which is why I think I am drawn to the idea of a herringbone fireplace.
Something calming and aesthetically pleasing about the symmetrical design.
Food for thought as I have two fireplaces in my sitting room, sounds very grand but really isn’t, one of which I love and the other I try to hide with various objects of furniture.
It hasn’t been lit in thirteen years as we always light the other one but I would love to transform it using this herringbone design then it would no longer be an eyesore but a decorative part of the room.
Then I would style it with a pair of chairs either side, naturally.
