Look at this thing. I adore our new house, which we take possession of August 31st. There's just one thing that really bugs me. The propane fireplace. I've let go of the fact that it's a natural gas stove, and not a "real" fireplace for lovely crackling wood fires. :o( I won't miss the mess and the soot though. But this fireplace is UGLY! And so not a colour that is condusive to my taste.
Look at this idea below. It's from none other than my brilliant sister, an unofficial interior (and exterior) designer. She took into consideration our lack of funds. Check out her link on the right side of this page, called 'Just Beachy' (yes I'm too lazy to do it right here!). Some day she'll be official for sure. Thanks sis, for giving me hope!
