Wood-burning stove A woodburning stove, set within a large fireplace, is the focus point of this living room. The walls and floors are kept neutral to complement the black sofa and warm red rug. RP by the cool iPad for showering with your tablet ;)
Fireplaces look inviting in a home but are highly inefficient when it comes to heating. The solution is a wood (or pellet) burning stove installed directly into the fireplace as illustrated in this picture. It looks much better than an insert, and if well-matched to the fireplace, imparts ambience as well as warmth to the room.
