Modern Fireplace Design: Portable, Rollable, Hideable

I don’t know about where you are, but here in Chicago IT IS COLD.  Right now I am looking out the window at a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground and even more flakes falling from the sky.  All I can think about are things that make me warm – hot cocoa, fuzzy slippers, comfy sweaters, and the warm glow of a fire.

There is something so mesmerizing about fire – watching flames dance around as they curl around the logs, listening to the crackling of the wood … the smoky scent that fills the air, the warmth radiating from the hearth … ahhhhh.

Modern fireplace design comes with a hefty price tag, but there are some really amazing options to gawk at and dream of maybe one day being able to afford.

Don’t have a fireplace?   Candles just aren’t enough?  Try this tabletop fireplace designed by Carl Mertens.  Two stainless steel “logs” that can bring a warm glow to any room.  Available at Generate Design.

Eco-Friendly Home Decor

Lately, the snippets of free time I usually spend working on blog posts have been eaten up by my new obsession of looking at apartment listings online.  We are going to be moving to Chicago at the end of the month and it is all I can think about.  I am so excited about getting to unpack in a new space, buy a few new pieces, and decorate!  I love mixing vintage and modern and using neutral colors with bold accents and I visit various home decor blogs and online stores religiously!  Eco-friendly furnishings and accessories are one of the hottest decorating trends, with many major store brands adding environmentally friendly lines at affordable prices [well, some of them] and more and more independent stores popping up every day.

Tamara Komuniecki, Editor-In-Chief of Long Beach Magazine, recently did a guest blog piece over at decor8 that made me fall in love with Union Eighteen.  Handmade from the manufacturing waste of the carpet industry, these beautiful RAW rugs are one of a kind.
