The emphasis on textures and natural colors will be a design trend well beyond 2024. From sustainably sourced wood slat panels to textured Roman clay paint, the feel of the fireplace accent wall brings as much relaxation as the look.

Lime wash paint is another popular (and easy) fireplace accent wall covering. This natural limestone style adds a powdered marble effect with a gentle matte finish.

Cool-to-the-touch Touchstone electric fireplaces fit right in with this focus on feeling good. Calming neutral and earth tone colors bring balance and instantly update any space.
