We are well and truly in the middle of winter and I think the best way to stay warm on a chilly night is to snuggle up in front of a roaring fire with a good book and a glass of red.
Today I have put together a collection of gorgeous fireplaces both modern and traditional. Not only do they add warmth to a room, but they also add charm and character.
To make the most out of your fireplace, dress the wall up with art of a mirror. Fill the mantle with pretty objects like vases, books, candles and frames.
Paint the walls around a fireplace in a deeper accent colour and keep the mantle in the same colour as the trims. this really draws attention to the fireplace.
