Turnin’ Up The Heat

While stalking Steven Gambrel on Instagram, I came across his fireplace design for a recent project:

Gorgeous isn’t it? I love how he manipulated simple moldings to come up with something unique. And the gold edges don’t hurt either.

I personally believe fireplaces should exit in most, if not all, of living rooms – it makes the space comfortable and homey. Some of my favorite memories are making s’mores and relaxing near the fire on our big cozy couch. There is really nothing better.

 

Here are some good looking mantles to spice up your day:

Had to include this mid-construction photo – the paneled walls are just too good
