Summertime Fireplace Decor

Who says the fireplace can’t keep you warm and cool at the same time?  I don’t know about you, but I tend to have the fireplace on most of the winter. With gas logs it’s very easy to start and provides such a cozy warmth that I always want to be surrounded by the glow.  But when those warmer months hit, what’s a girl to do?  She wants to head to the coast, with bonfires on the beach, and sand in her toes.  So I throw the windows open and invite the fresh breezes to sway my linen curtains and fill the room.  And to make me feel like I’m at the shore, I switch up the decor.  I’ve been to a lot of markets and sales this summer, and have found some great pieces.  As the summer heat rolls in, the fireplace becomes a source of cooling, a respite, an oasis.   It makes me want to sit back, relax, linger over my morning coffee, or lazily page through a magazine.  Hello there, summer.  Thanks, fireplace, for becoming my “coolplace”.
