Fireplace Season

Welcome to December, and welcome to fireplace season. The official season in which it is ideal to be snuggled up indoors, hunkered down with loved ones by a cozy fire.

This non-working fireplace has been stuffed with logs
and is complete with cozy throws to snuggle up on!

So let's take a look at some beautiful fireplaces. Not only are fireplaces warm physically, but the visual quality of looking at a fire in a fireplace creates a great sense of warmth as well.

In addition to their great warmth, fireplaces make for stunning focal points.

Here are some of my faves:

This mixed mantle of stone and a simple wood hearth are so warm and cozy.
Especially with the open back bench to snuggle into in front! 

A modern minimalist spin keeps cozy with this fireplace.
Fill the space below with some split logs, and it would be perfect!

And of course we can't leave out the stockings and the holiday trim.
This classic white hearth & mantle are a timeless classic no matter the season.

Do you have a fireplace that you like to cozy up by during the colder seasons? How do you transition the decor for the holidays?

Hunker down, and keep cozy!

  1. We don't have a fireplace, but the Knight replaced the woodstove with a pellet stove this fall, and it does have a piece of glass so I can see the flames flicker. Not the same ambiance though.
