A Feature Fireplace for Your Christmas Photoshoot

Sophie Hitchens Thursday 15th September 2022

What could be cosier and more inviting than the flickering flames and welcoming warmth of a living room fireplace? The answer is a festive fireplace dripping with traditional yuletide trimmings or contemporary Christmas cheer.

When the time comes for festive features in magazines and gift-giving brochures, we guarantee you’ll spot a feature fireplace or two. Without a doubt, they conjure up Christmas joy and leave you pondering on what to add to your Christmas list.

Whilst the advent bells are still a few months away, lifestyle shoots usually take place in the sweltering summer months like this Christmas image that has just been released by Cox & Cox shot at Church Road. And with that in mind, we’ve picked out some of our favourite feature fireplaces. The ones that create the perfect setting for fabulously festive photoshoots.  

Contemporary Fireplaces and Fire Spaces

Keep it simple with a contemporary fireplace that sets the backdrop for a festive scene. Ham House is a fabulous example of an ultramodern fireplace with clean and elegant lines. Clay House, on the other hand, shows how simple unused fire spaces can offer crisp contemporary cool.

A Marvellous Mantel

A mantlepiece creates the perfect setting for seasonal style, festive foliage and a Christmas ornament or 2. A great example is the dining room fireplace at Eagle House, as seen below which has been used in many Christmas features over the years. And many of our Light Locations, including Huron RoadBelgrave Road and Anders House  offer gorgeous marble mantles that appeal to those searching for fireplace photoshoot locations.

Something a Little Different 

Every one of our gorgeous Light Locations is unique. So, it’s no surprise that you’ll find a range of quirky, opulent or unusual fireplaces. Some of our favourites are the art deco surround at Marmora Road, the impressive inglenook at Cotswold Barn and the strikingly simple choice at Cadogan Road. And it’s difficult to beat the excellent choices at Belmont House for ornate luxury.
