Cozy Up By The Fire

Hi Everyone!

I hope you're all doing well.  I haven't been posting as much lately - the start of school and getting everything underway has really distracted me!  But, the dust is settling and I hope to be blogging more often going forward.  Now on to today's post!

As the weather turns cooler here in Seattle I am looking forward to experiencing our first fire in our new home.  (yes, I still call it our new home even though we've been in the house for six months now.  :))   

I think I'm a bit over-excited about this event but all of you can probably understand!  :)  Along those lines, here are a few of my favorite fireplaces.  I hope you can find some inspiration that you love!

This is what's in front of my fireplace now.  
It's an old section of fences that I bought an antiques market in Munich.
I love the rustic touch that it adds to the room.

Such interesting lines on this fireplace! 

I guess you can tell that I lean toward an oversized stone fireplace mantel.
What's your favorite style?

I found LOTS of inspiration! Every picture was gorgeous! Glad to hear I'm not the only one having trouble with keeping up in blogland! I do see things beginning to quiet down around here as well and I must admit I'm loving it! Have a great week!

Sadly we don't have a fireplace so we're envious of those who do... We head upstate to get our cozy fire on and will be doing so soon!

I agree, oversized stone is definitely my favourite. Love these examples! x Sharon PS I can't believe its been 6 months. It seems like just the other day that you were living in Germany!

Time for another evening out. How about next week? Marianne is game too.

Barbara, beautiful cozy pictures. I wish it would get cold here so I could turn on the fireplace. It sounds relaxing.

We just tried out our newly rebuilt fire place in our family room (post renovation) and I can't wait for the temps to stay low, so I can light it up all the time. Now, I'm on the hunt for a great pair of andirons.

It takes time to feel "at home" at 6 months, I think you're doing great!!

xoxo Elizabeth
