Having a fire place in New York City is just as difficult as it seems. Except for this one and very rare instance, my freshman year of college: I rented a small one-bedroom in the village and my apartment had a fire place. Now, did it work? Probably not, and to be honest I never took the chance to try it out. But what I did was beautifully decorate it with voses and picture frames and put tiny candles where the wood was supposed to go.
This slideshow of five beautiful fireplaces are here to bring inspiration to your liveing room, or bedroom, and also just get you excited about the preceding colder months. When we finally have excuses to not leave our apartments and curl up with a great book or movie and a cup of tea, and just be.
