Summer is long gone, the leaves are colorful and making their way towards the ground, the temperature is quickly sinking towards freezing point – winter is just around the corner and all I want to do is sit down in front of a fire. I have so many good winter memories from my childhood – being outside in the snow during the day – running wild with the horses – then spending the evening in front of the fireplace playing cards with my family. Right now we do not have a fireplace in our apartment – but it is at the top of my “must-have-list” for when we either decide to buy a place or build a place… Here is my well hoarded collection of fireplace inspiration – oh how I wish I could get one in our apartment straight away!

Simplistic? I could live with that.

Storage and display + a brilliant fireplace in the middle… Perfectly modern, perfectly cozy.

This is so perfect – that tree trunk table kills me – or to be correct, it kills me that it is not in my home.

Perfectly Scandinavian!

This kinda reminds me of my apartment in Oslo – just a mine was a tad bit more run down. I had quite the love affair going on with the old fireplaces in that flat – we had three of them – and this image brings back the right amount of good fireplace memories.

A fireplace is also a good place to store antlers – for those of you who did not know!

Black fireplace? I think I will have to say yes to that – the tiles on the floor on the other hand is a big no-no, reminds me of the old tiles in our bathroom… This is not the kind of fireplace I would put in my bathroom so that is not the connection I was looking for… But I would like a fireplace in a bathroom – if it came with a big old tub for me to soak in!

Single-log-fireplace… I will be your log lady!

Use a fireplace as storage space…

A fireplace in the diningroom – oh jess – I would like that.

Perfect – logs under the fireplace – logs on the table.

I love a concrete fireplace – and I do love the seating options… General love happening.

Nothing more than the word PERFECTION needed here.

I will end it all with this piece of vintage feel goodness…

I just came to the realization that I want a fireplace in every room in my home – or at least the livingroom, diningroom, kitchen and bathroom… The hallway and the bedroom can be without, smokey bedroom is not on the top of my list…

    For the last couple of weeks I’ve been starting my day in front of the fireplace with a cup of coffee and iPad in hand. You can’t beat it! BTW, your images are terrific.

      Oh thank you for the compliment – and I am getting a certain feeling of envy! Dreaming of the time when I can get down in front of the fireplace after a long day of work and hassle… Complete relaxation!
