This blog goes out to all the East coasters being snowed in right now. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, settle yourself around a cozy fire and stay warm.
If you’re not so fortunate, you can always add visual warmth and glow by placing a mantle in a corner and filling with candles, or placing candles in a non-working, existing fireplace.
This three-sided fireplace is enjoyed from the kitchen as well as the family room.
If you’re thinking of redoing your gas fireplace, consider replacing logs with crushed glass or fireballs for a more modern look.
A white marble surround is always classic and goes with most decor.
Floor to ceiling copper mosaic tiles make this a beautiful focal point for a contemporary living room.
Even one that needs a bit of renovating can provide warmth and character to any room. This double-sided one in my master bedroom/bathroom is patiently awaiting to be redone, someday.
