Make your own fireplace.no chimney required. Use an old mantle structure and have several candles serve as your "fire." This lovely vintage room lends itself perfectly for this idea well. White mantle and mirror, candles and lanterns.
This HDB apartment is an excellent example of how subtle mix and match can be. What is interesting about the interior is that the designer opts for more modern flooring materials in the dining room, such as tiles, but still sticks to parquet in.
