stone fireplace near an existing brick fireplace?

We're adding a screen porch with a fireplace. The screen porch is adjacent to the family room which has a brick fireplace. I would love a stone fireplace on the screen porch, but am unsure of the look because it is about 20 feet from the brick one. what do you think?

I think it would be OK, the screen porch is outdoor, the brick, indoor. So long as the rest of the decor in the spaces reflects that difference it should be fine.

I would try to place the stone fireplace at a different wall so at least one is not looking directly at both fireplaces at the same angle.

Definitely on a different wall, I agree. What type of stone? You should also think about color and cut and shape and how that relates to the brick

How about painting the brick so it is less obvious and then the stone will take center stage?

I agree with Dytecture. A different wall would be great. The 2 together would compete against each other and the brick would loose. good luck
