sneak peek best of: fireplaces

The chilly nights here in Martha’s Vineyard make me want to cozy up to some of the amazing fireplaces we’ve been fortunate enough to feature over the years in D*S sneak peeks. From working and non-working fireplaces to faux, painted and covered mantles, these amazing home owners have showcased it all and I hope their fireplaces (35 of our faves) will inspire you as much as they’ve inspired me. xo, grace

Oh man, I sooo wish we had a fireplace in our apartment! Sadly, I think we’re going to have to wait until we can afford an actual house.



love it. very inspiring. wish there were a few corner fireplace ideas – those corner coves are tricky.


Perfect timing for this as fall begins to set in….I am as captivated by the chairs as I am by the fireplaces ….especially those brown sort of faux bois wing chairs in Rinne Allen’s pic – who says wing chairs can’t be fun?


Horray! Thanks for the gorgeous ammunition for my never-ending argument with my husband over whether we should paint our very dark, very blah brick fireplace!


Great post! Even though it is 80+ in Dallas, I have Fall Fever in the worst way. Loved these gorgeous fireplaces and even more gorgeous settings.


I adore fireplaces – my dream one is at the Ahwahnee Lodge in Yosemite. Can’t wait to have a house with a fire going!


Thank you thank you thank you! I have been hemming and hawing over our fireplace, and have had such a hard time over the last half year finding pictures and ideas to inspire me on both you site and others. You made my day!


Yummy! I need ideas for our “kiva” fireplace. Corner type with a “banco”, bench in english. And it goes all the way to the raised ceiling, which is 22 feet! Currently painted to resemble baby poo! Any ideas? Anyone?


Love the north-woods themed one. This post makes me want to grab a book and a blanket and snuggle up!

these fireplaces are so creative and amazing! i just posted some pics of a cool one my friend made of driftwood and ocean rocks.


I absolutely heart what you did with the floor paint continuing onto the coffee table in your living room! Very creative/artistic/inspiring and unique!
