Warm as toast!

Ah, Winter!!!
I would like to think the worst of it is behind us, not that we experience anything to cold here in the Hunter Valley, but it has still been chilly. Especially in the evening.
I love the WOW factor a fireplace can add to a home. Not only do they create a warm & cosy atmosphere in the winter time, they also make a beautiful feature in any room, year round!!! 

If you had a library in your home wouldn't it be lovely to curl up with a good book & a glass of wine in front of the fire....

This stone feature is beautiful, rustic but classic all at the same time...

How about a long hot soak in the tub with the fire to keep the bathroom lovely & toasty, I think if you have a bathroom that looks this incredible, you just know you've made it... This, to me is just the ultimate luxury!

How romantic to have a gorgeous fireplace in the master bedroom...

Some fabulous dinner parties & wonderful conversation could certainly be had in this dining room...

I'm not sure what room this fireplace is in but it is very pretty & feminine, Don't you think?

This patio fireplace would certainly extend your outdoor entertaining well into the cooler months...

This ultra modern glass fire is incredible...

It goes to show there is a place in every home to put a fire place & a style to match.

We are looking at installing a fireplace in our dream home, most likely a gas fueled fire or possibly electric as we will be using bottled gas. I like a nice traditional style, with a lovely mantle that I can dress up.
How about you, do you have a fireplace at your house?
