Wooden furniture is one of the current trends in interiors, and property owners should consider what colour will match up to their wood burning fireplace.
Adrienne Chinn, design director at Adrienne Chinn Design, said that burnt or aged wood finishes are very popular at the moment, while bleached wood, matte finishes and sustainable teak are being chosen.
It is also possible to buy wood which has been painted to fit into a room's existing style, with turquoise, orange and lime green helping to add a splash of colour to people's property.
"Good quality wood is always a popular option as it is good looking, is natural – be sure that the wood is from a sustainable source - and with a bit of care, can stay looking good for centuries. It brings a bit of nature into the home and softens the harder edges of modern living," she added.
Wood could be a great choice as a fireplace surround. With a marble hearth, a dark timber frame would sit well in a room with cream walls and a minimalistic style.
