With cooler days upon us (hello arctic blast coming this week), I am craving a nice fire. Having a mantle in many a room is a great way to add a stylish element of ambience and warmth. What I love most about fireplaces is that they aren’t just for living rooms. I think there is nothing quite as spectacular than finding a fire going in a dining room, bedroom, or even bathroom. Anywhere unexpected.
Whether there is a fireplace on during an intimate dinner party or softly burning in a contemporary bathroom, fireplaces add an architectural element that allows for a fun pop of marble, stone, or brick. It can make a cold room cozy and bring tall rooms down to scale. Here are some fun fires that will have you wishing for one in every room.
