Every Home Should Have: Fireplace

A traditional and elaborate fireplace with an over-sized mirror resting on the mantel beautifies a French apartment.

If you are building, remodeling or designing a
home, consider adding a fireplace to create a permanent character and
focal point to any room.  If you happen to live in a warm weather
country or the house you are living in doesn’t have
the structure for a functional one, a fireplace mantel could be a smart
alternative and there are so many design options to choose from.  From
traditional and elaborate designs with a lot of charm as in the French
Apartment in the top image to more modern
and sculptural ones as in the one designed by David Collins.  Add a few oversized candles in a faux fireplace or mantel and
immediately you are creating a very romantic and casual atmosphere with little effort.
