This sparked my interest!

Today I want to talk about an inspiring idea that I love, fireplaces… not just fireplaces but fireplaces in kitchens.

A Recent Kitchen Remodel via Indisco

I was at work this morning (designing kitchens in case you didn’t know) and I happen to come across a colleague’s photo of a recent kitchen project he was working on, it was a cute little white painted kitchen and the piece DE resistance was a red brick fireplace! It definitely caught my eye and made me think about how amazing it would be to have a fireplace in my kitchen! (ah sigh! dream on…. maybe someday!) There is something so inviting about a fireplace, and with the amount of time people spend in the kitchen it is a very nice amenity to have, especially here in New England. A fireplace can be made of many different kinds of materials, concrete, brick, stone, etc. they are a welcomed addition to any style of architecture or interior design, in my opinion. Anyway back to my point, today I thought I’d share some other pictures I found of fireplaces in kitchens. Oooo just had a thought, pair a great stone fireplace with a sliding barn door in your kitchen/great room! Okay focus, here they are enjoy, I know I did!

I'm in love I think!

Amazing Wrought Iron Shelf too!

I'll take one!

Doubled sided, a whole new dimension

The unbelievable warmth

In older more traditional floor plans rooms are often separated and closed off from one another, what a gorgeous surprise to walk into an updated cape or farm house and find an original or added fireplace. Stay inspired and warm today!
