the sunday nook {fireside}…

fire side

i figured that given the season it would be remiss of me at this point to not take us all fireside for a sunday nook…

afterall, what are sundays for if not hunkering down & taking refuge from the cold whilst listening to the roar of a hungry fire…

there were a few contenders for today’s nook, but whilst many were fabulous, i have very strict criteria for the perfect fireside retreat: it must induce immediate relaxation, invite moments of quiet contemplation &, when the occasion calls for it, accommodate large gatherings for friendly banter & lazy sunday pursuits…

i think today’s nook achieves all of this & more…

  1. Yes, I could see myself squished face-down on that glorious flokati rug. That actually sounds like the perfect place to me right now! I never had a working fireplace but I’ve always wanted one. Do they make you smell like smoke, though? At a friend’s party earlier in the season they had a fire pit out back and I ended up reeeeeking of smoke. Only downside!

  2. haha, i actually love the smell of a fire… yes, if you lean in i guess they can make you smell a bit like a burnt woodpile, but 99.9% of the smoke generally speaking goes up the flue! my parents had a working fireplace in their previous home & i loved it, but you do need to clean it out after each use which can be a bit of a bore… but so worth the effort in my opinion!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
