Our New Fireplace
I have always wanted one. I grew up in Florida so not many of us had them. We often spent Christmas in shorts so there was little use.
When we moved to Kentucky there were two things we children begged for in our new home - And we were pretty sure dad was would give them to us since he moved us from the only home we had ever known. :)... A basement(we don't have those in Florida either-to much water) and a fireplace. We got both. :)
A fireplace says home to me... It means warmth. It means light. It means cuddles. :)
Blake and I looked at a few homes with no fireplaces, but I wanted one so badly! One of the many things that made our new home perfect for us is it has a FIREPLACE! We are 2 weeks from moving in and I am at a loss for how to decorate it! Modern? Painted brick? Sea-Shore inspired?
May I share a few photos that inspire me? Would you vote for your favorite? Perhaps it will lead me in direction I am to go...
Fireplace #1This fireplace is one of the MANY that I came across when searching HGTV's sight for some inspiration. I figured, it is my favorite channel(tied with Food Network) so of course I would love the websight. It had wonderful photos and ideas! I love the formality of the sconces in this photo.
Fireplace #2John and Sherry are pretty good at the decorating thing. I love their blog. I LOVE their home! I love this fireplace! I love painted brick!
Fireplace #3This is the family room of the blogger 3 men and a lady... I adore her style! Perhaps a little modern for my taste normally, but perhaps a change is in order? What do you think?
Ok - VOTE PLEASE! And please let me know if you have any fabulous fireplace hearths to share!
