warmth + winter

February is here, which means winter has set in. We hope that you have already taken steps to prepare your home for winter. Cleaning your furnace filter, refrigerator coils and maintaining drains all are essential in winter home keeping safety.  If you live in a part of the country that hasn’t already received some amount of snowfall, chances are within the next three months you still could. Which means, you’ll be spending time preparing a fire and enjoying the physical warmth and inviting atmosphere it provides.

We are quick to recognize the importance of tending the functionality of the fire; ensuring there’s enough wood supply and keeping the flue clean, but what about the esthetics of the fireplace?

The screen and tool holders don’t have to be an eyesore; rather they are another expression of style. Architects and interior designers commonly utilize the fireplace for design inspiration as a focal point in the room.
