When I was given the seasonal assignment to round up the 10 best fireplaces, I panicked for a moment (as I do with all last minute stories). Then I remembered that I’m obsessed with fireplaces, and literally have hundreds saved on my pinterest boards. (ha!) So the 10 best fireplaces quickly became the 20. Even though I live in sunny Austin, the first thing I did when I bought my condo was to design and build a large fireplace for the living room. Nothing gives a room a friendly center of energy quite like a fireplace does. I’m also a fan of them in unexpected places like kitchens and bathrooms as well. Modern, rustic, gothic, southwest, victorian, mid-century, every style you can think of. I love them all. Scroll through and let me know: which style is your favorite?

    I simply love fireplaces, the bigger the better. I love these design styles! I wish I could have one on each room! LOL

    What a great post and beautiful selection of fireplaces – they are all gorgeous and set a different mood. Personally, I love the rustic feel of the coloured one, the cozy cottage, the food and simple and cabin fireplace – but they are all nice and I like this idea for a post!
