In the spirit of the winter storm currently dumping snow along the east coast and the bitter temperatures that are accompanying it, I thought it would be appropriate to look at some unique and inspiring fireplaces. A good fireplace not only adds practical comfort on cold days, it adds an aesthetic that is hard to replicate. We don't have a fireplace in our apartment, but one of my favorite holiday channels is the yule log. Even that adds a little more "warmth" to the apartment!
Cozying up to Fireplace Design
I'll start by saying if I had a fireplace in my bedroom, I would never leave. Certainly not on days when the temperature is down to a balmy 0 degrees. Aside from loving this long, modern fireplace, these big windows, high ceilings and beautiful hardwood is to die for. I'm also really loving the pillows (side note, I'll be sharing an awesome pillow designer with you soon!)
This. I'm having trouble finding the appropriate words to explain how much I love this entire room. The simple and sleek fireplace is beautiful and the perfect complement to all the ornate detail surrounding it. And then that wallpaper and the chandeliers. I want it all.

You can really see the detail in the design of this fireplace. It's absolutely stunning and it perfectly bridges the two rooms in this open floor plan. I'm also loving the patina material used, especially the polished bronze on the interior. I highly recommend checking out the entire house here on ArchDaily.
This textured copper fireplace is casual yet grand given it's large scale. It makes the huge open space around it seem almost small by comparison. And while the actual fire pit area is small, the material makes the entire area feel warmer in contrast to the white wall.
Whether you have a fireplace or not, hope you all stay warm this weekend!
