Last week summer left us abruptly as winter arrived with a vengeance.  Out came the scarves, the coats and electric blankets as we faced the whirling winds, the torrential rain and the heavy hail.

In this type of weather there is nothing more attractive and as welcome in the home as a fireplace. Sitting and watching the dancing flames not only takes the chill out of the air but is relaxing as well as adding atmosphere to the room.

Fireplaces have had a resurgence as many use gas or ethanol thereby eliminating the fuss and the mess of a wood fire.  They are not only practical but also very decorative and can be rather architectural.

There are many different styles, ranging from the traditional with a formal mantlepiece, to a contempory, sleek look with the fireplace and entertainment unit being intergrated,  to the modern free-standing and portable.

I have found some fabulous examples for you to be inspired.
