Reading by the warmth of the stone fireplace on those freezing nights

Those little pleasures like the warmth of the fire in winter matter so much. And what better surrounding for the crackling flames, but rough cut natural stone. Natural stone occurs in several colors too. The rustic surrounding does remind of the days when people lived closer to nature. Before technology took over. Let both worlds exist side by side, anyway.

What about a jutting stone-layered fireplace from floor to ceiling, with a mantel above that contains a picturesque painting? Would it be better to have a cut-out for the woodpile instead of the mantel? Consider a slate hearth that contrasts so sharply with the furniture of yellow and gold though the walls are gray.

Say it with a large mirror perhaps to make everything bigger instead of books, photographs, and paintings? Greenery in the room works wonders too and intensifies that rustic touch with a togetherness of nature. A series of health-giving plants like aloe vera perhaps.

Did you know that fireplaces fit in just anywhere, bedroom and kitchen, living room and gazebo? Choose which one suits best. Antique furniture highlights that distant rustic look. White walls and brown furniture could contrast with those light-colored stone blocks of uneven surfaces. Try cobblestone and an amazing display space above for astounding effects. Cultured stone is lighter, easier to install. Shocking oranges and greens in furniture, if so preferred!
