fireplaces part 1

Emily Oster

If you follow me on Pinterest then you might have guessed that I really enjoy fireplaces (I have a whole board dedicated to them). For me, the infatuation is founded in both the experiential and aesthetic aspects of fireplaces. In the winter, the fireplace is the focal point of a cozy evening spent at home with friends and family while in summer a fire marks the end of a long active day on the water. Aesthetically, a fireplace provides a unique opportunity to reveal the specific nature of a home. It is inherently custom, unlike many items in our homes, and easily becomes the center of any room. 

Currently, I am working on two separate remodels for fireplaces that are not very good expressions of the homes they occupy. They are both large and rather generic and desperately in need of a transformation. So I thought I would share some of the inspiration images and design strategies I am thinking about using. However, I wanted to first share some of my favorite fireplaces so make sure to check back tomorrow for part 2!
