SNOW DAY - I love snow but have to say it loses some of its charm when you have no power or heat and are told it may be another 24 - 36 hrs. Well at least the 3G on my ipad is finally up. We only have one fireplace so just the living room is somewhat warm. Since the rest of the house is 50, looks like it's going to be four somewhat happy campers sleeping by the fire tonight...but hopefully not tomorrow.

Here's a post from last winter - If I was building a dream house, a fireplace in the kitchen would be near the top of my wish list. This kitchen of Canadian designer Brian Gluckstein is my all time favorite. I love the elevated placement of the fireplace surrounded by the beautiful dark wood cabinets and woodwork. Off the the left, not shown, is a gorgeous banquet seating area (more on that in a later post) Source: Canadian House and Home, Feb 2003, photography by Michael Alberstat
Here's another beautiful, traditional fireplace adding ambiance to the kitchen of this older home. Imagine Sunday breakfast here. (photography by Mark Walron, Southern Accents, via All the Best)
The fireplace stands out in this blue kitchen in a Notting Hill home that was for sale last year. If it was lit I think it would give a better sense of its impact in the room.
Do you have a fireplace in your kitchen?
