One of the great things about a fire place is the fireplace mantel. Just imagine all the decorations you could put on it at Christmas or for any holiday. It's a wonderful flat surface for all my snowmen, candles, greenery etc. I can just see it now, can't you? LOL
Fireplace Mantels has some really beautiful fireplace surrounds. Since my house is a log one I'll go with something a bit simpler, don't want anything to fancy. How does this one look? Yep - it will work.
The one thing that I'm a little concerned about when it comes to fireplaces is carrying the wood in and where to put it, but they have such wonderful decorative Log Racks I think I could convince myself it's not so bad :) Besides, the smell of the burning wood would make up for the carrying. This one would look great next to my fireplace.
Oh wait - I'd also need a Fireplace Screen! Don't want the future grandchildren deciding to crawl into the fireplace and getting all dirty! Can just imagine what the daughter-in-law will think about that (once I have one). I love the look of wrought iron, so that's what it would have to be. This one is my favorite:
Now all I'll need is a wonderful big dog to lie in front of the fireplace on a hearth rug and we'd be set :) Since my kitchen counter and accents will be green - I think I'll go with this one.
Can't you just imagine it? Well - it wouldn't necessarily have to be a log house - but it is my dream after all :) Do you have a dream house? Does it have a fireplace or two?
