Yesterday, it was all about the simplicity of an outdoor firepit and s’mores, and today we’re moving indoors for fireplace season dreaming. After all, a crackling fire adds so much cozy warmth to chilly evenings and dampened moods. If that weren’t enough, it does seem as though everything (including us!) looks lovelier in the fire light. I hope Fireplaces to Inspire sparks an idea (see what I did there?) or simply soothes your soul.

The curvy European country style of the new surround completely transformed the look of the fireplace with its black granite.
I hung on to the original fireplace surround, hoping I would be able to repurpose it. And that’s just what we did. (Scroll to top of post to see it in our new house…yep, that’s the original one from our former home.)
