Some of you have already received your first or second blast of winter reality. Here in Toronto, we just missed the storm, but it'll be here on time for the Holidays. For those of you with a wood burning fireplace, you will know the the comforts of putting a few logs in, and listening to the crackle of flames, drinking some hot Irish Coffee, and cozying up to a book or a movie. These interiors are much more formal than what I grew up with, but certainly comforting just the same.

Sadly, I am without a fireplace. I am not a fan of the gas or the electric fireplace unit. Looking at a flame just isn't the same as being surrounded with it's warmth, poking wood around to get the flame up, smelling that crisp wood burning, and listening to that wonderful crackle. So for now, we head over to my parent's house to enjoy their fireplace. We will be there for Christmas and I can hardly wait. So when we finally decide to move to another home, it's definitely a Woodburning fireplace for us, perhaps 2 or 3. A fireplace in the kitchen is a must, it's where I spend hours creating everything from elaborate dinners to glittery kids crafts . Ina Garten has a fabulous kitchen in her Hampton's home.

And the ultimate luxury, a fireplace in the bedroom. How incredibly romantic and soothing to fall asleep to the sound of that warm glow, and soft crackle. The bedroom below is the ultimate in opulence. It's grandeur, floor to ceiling headboard, the Crystal chandelier and sconces, mirrored walls, creamy colour palette and of course beautiful wood fireplace.
