Black Sashes. Sashes in interior design refer to the parts of the window holding each pane of glass in place – the frames within the frame.

If you are unsure try bringing a clear photograph of your fireplace with you when you're looking for art and check if you can bring the piece home on a trial basis before committing to buy it.

Traditional brown furniture Moroccan rug. A redbrick fireplace is quite traditional and the tones tend to go well with dark wood furniture and rich leather. But if you want to shake things up a bit try rolling out a fluffy Moroccan‐style rug beneath it all and paint the walls a pale shade of "greige". The creamy tones work with the brick and leather while giving the traditional style a current twist.
