Mod Fireplaces in Good Decorating and Home Improvement Encyclopedia. Status: Warm Pics for Cold Days.
Brrrr...we here in the St. Louis area are scheduled to receive yet ANOTHER winter storm over the next three days. Yep, 3 DAYS! Up to another foot of the fluffy stuff.
Well, I thought I'd share some pics of warm glowing fireplaces as found in my
vintage set of home decor encyclopedias. I haven't had a chance to shoot all the
books so I might ad more in another post and you might see some these pics
repeated in another post some time concerning some other detail in the pics.
Seems like every time I wish Winter to be done and over, Winter slaps me in the
face with more snow!
I love the white wall mount version in the first pic. You see a lot of these in an electric plug in form. The fire pit hanging cone in the second pic is almost to mod to actually exist!
The black cones seen in these two pics are so common that I don't even bother with them so much. I do have an electric one out in the Garage but I need to work out a dent anyway so it might get painted a different color.
A fireplace in the kitchen? OK! As long as it's cool to look at. That white one with the Angel fish almost disappears in that kitchen / dining room.
I love the firepit style fireplace in this workout room. It seems so James Bond or something. The black one in the second pic looks just like my orange one in our livingroom / cocktail lounge!
The books even have installation instructions and ideas. How convenient!
