I don't believe anything can do as much for a room as a glowing fire in an attractive fireplace. Men and dogs love an open fire - they show good sense! It is the heart of any room and should be kindled on the slightest provocation.
- Dorothy Draper, 1939I could not agree more! I love a glowing fire, especially in the holiday season. Whether mod and minimalist or classic and old world, a fireplace is always beautiful. I also adore how fireplaces feel at home in almost any space, from a bedroom to a kitchen, library, bathroom or outdoor terrace. Here are some lovely examples to warm you up. . .
This last one is the Victorian Drawing Room at the Greenbrier Hotel, designed by Dorothy Draper and featured on the cover of House Beautiful 1948, and it's complete with a lovely fireplace!
Which one is your favorite? Hope you are all keeping cozy!
