Whether we want to admit it or not, Summer is coming to a close and Fall is upon us. As if the bags of candy or orange plastic pumpkins didn’t give you a clue! As the evenings get cooler and we unfold Grandma’s knitted afghan, there’s nothing better than snuggling up next to a roaring fireplace. We are lucky enough to be getting a fireplace in our new home. Granted, it’s a glass enclosed gas fireplace and not the “real” kind of fire, but, it’s an improvement from the “On-Demand Fire” video loop we played on our TV during last year’s Christmas party. Our fireplace surround is standard brick with a nondescript wood mantle, but I love it nonetheless! Still, I can’t help but envy these classic and rustic fireplaces from Country Home Magazine. Roaring fire or not, these fireplaces exude warmth and comfort.
