Pastel Paradise

Add a playful touch of color to your living area with a soft and inviting pastel palette. One easy way to accomplish this look is to use mineral paint on your fireplace, such as Romabio’s Masonry Flat or Masonry Textured paint.

Romabio’s paints are mineral based, and their extremely durable masonry products are perfect for brick, stone, stucco, and other materials. Consider hues like blush pink, warm beige, or tranquil blue to infuse a feeling of serenity and artistic flair into your space.

Limewashed Whitewash

Brighten up your brick fireplace with a limewash finish for a romantic and charming atmosphere. The subtle texture and aged appearance of limewash paint creates a classic, old-world feel that works well with both traditional and modern aesthetics. White or off-white tones also complement the warmth of the brick, and you can finish off the look with a warm-toned wood mantle.

Romabio offers various limewash paint products, including Classico Limewash, which is designed to calcify on unpainted brick or masonry surfaces, while still allowing moisture to evaporate. It can be washed off easily, so you can create a more or less textured look according to your taste.

Distinct Dual Tones

Add a bit of drama to your fireplace with two contrasting tones. You can use the two colors to create various looks, such as an ombre effect, a geometric pattern, or even a framed border. This striking effect adds depth and visual interest to your fireplace, making it a standout focal point in the room.

Using Romabio’s masonry paints, you could pair Celtic Stone, a dark, smoky shade, with Feather, a subtle, warm gray. You could also pair Romabio limewash with their flat masonry paint for contrast between a textured finish and a solid finish.Feather and celtic stone by romabio

Dark & Alluring

Bring an air of sophistication to your living space through rich, velvety hues. Romabio offers several dark hues in their masonry paint line. For example, their “Navy Steel” is a dark, moody navy tone that adds depth and is sure to capture the attention of anyone who walks into the room. Using a dark shade on your fireplace will envelop the room in a cozy ambiance, creating a sense of completeness that exudes warmth and comfort.

Mediterranean Escape

Give your fireplace a Mediterranean-inspired makeover with earthy tones and a textured finish. Choose warm, sun-kissed colors like yellow and orange or deep ocean blues and earthy greens to evoke the dreamy appeal of Mediterranean landscapes. You can choose muted tones or bold colors according to your preference.

If you want a more pronounced look, use limewash to whitewash the fireplace itself, then use your Mediterranean color palette to paint the wall surrounding the fireplace. You can create an accent wall or transform the entire room into an idyllic escape.
