Your hearth accessories are like jewelry for your fireplace, so look for finishes that complement each other. Purchasing coordinated hearth accessories is an easy first step.

Birch's lighter hue and matte finish make it a great wood to use in modern designs. Try cutting a single log into thin slices for coasters, or simply pile a load in the fireplace. Though this space has plenty of rough and rustic elements to add texture, the look is still modern thanks to generous proportions, clean surfaces and minimalist styling.

Fill it with wabi-sabi decorative logs. They hint at coziness, aren't too formal and require no matches.

Embrace wabi-sabi style. The wabi-sabi philosophy, which has its roots in Japan, finds beauty in imperfection and impermanence. The flowers whose petals are just beginning to turn brown, the thick slab of wood with an interesting crack running down the center — these are more highly valued than something flawless. Isn't that refreshing?

Or go a little further: The rough-hewn columns on either side of this fireplace give the impression of two tree trunks climbing out of the floor. We see very few straight lines in nature, and playing with this in architectural elements (and in the art, centered) can subconsciously relax your eyes and mind.
