Happy Election Day! And it is a happy day, because it means the end of political ads and phone calls! Living in the battleground state of Ohio, I’m done with all of it. But make sure you get out there and vote!
So, I figured that I’d offer up a more enjoyable voting option for you all – fireplace faves. As I sit here in my plywood-floored-family-room-awaiting-hardwood-floor-installation with my partially drywalled fireplace, I’m dreaming of a beautifully finished space. So, let’s take a poll, shall we?
Which fireplace is your fave? Do you like stone fireplaces or do you prefer wood-trimmed ones with lots of chunky molding? Or perhaps a mix of both? Or do you like an old school brick fireplace? Take a look at the fireplace eye candy below and cast your vote!
1. Stone with a rustic mantel
2. Classic with built in bookcases
3. Stone with a classic white mantel
4. Stacked stone surround with traditional flair
5. Old school brick style fireplace
6. Elegant in white
7. Cast stone mantel
8. Two-toned beauty
9. Graphic tiled charmer
10. Marble subway tiled classic
11. Warm and rustic
12. Bright and Cozy
13. Casual Chic
14. Coastal Masculine
15. Woodsy Goodness
So, cast your vote! Which fireplace is your fave? Are you cozying up by the fireplace yet this season?

It is so nice to see a post like this today! I have been planning a fireplace re-do in my house (which has been put on the back burner due to the hurricane-power outage in NJ). For my family room, I have been leaning closest to #1 – so I guess that one gets my vote! Have a great day!

They are all GORGEOUS!!!! It's a hard decision to pick one favorite. I'm picking #11.
Maury @ Life on MarsNovember 6, 2012 at 2:39 pm
Oh goodness… I like a lot of them but #1, #11 and #12 are my favorites!
AndreaNovember 6, 2012 at 2:46 pm
Oh that's tough. It's a tie between 6 and 10 for me. I guess it also depends on the room. I love the look of stone in a casual space and marble for a more formal space. Can't wait to see your floors and your fireplace!!!

I like two toned for you & subway tile for me:) But only if you come help me do it!
ElizabethNovember 6, 2012 at 5:39 pm
I vote for #8!
MimiNovember 6, 2012 at 7:16 pm
I vote for #3, Stone with a classic white mantel. Since I don't have stone on my fireplace, I'm thinking about the subway tile for my home.

#8 Stone w/ a classic white mantel is my favorite. I love the rustic w/ classic combination. #10 was a close second w/ the marble subway tile and the planked wall above…. Love these two.

#10 is my favorite but they're all beautiful!
RebeccaNovember 6, 2012 at 9:34 pm
Wow…these are beautiful! I can't say which one is my absolute favorite, but #3 and #10 really caught my eye! I LOVE the chunky white mantel on the stone in #3 and I love the clean crisp lines of #10.

Love #13 the best but they are all beautiful!

PamNovember 7, 2012 at 4:14 pm
#13 is my fav with #1 a close 2nd!!
KristelNovember 7, 2012 at 6:08 pm
3, 11, and 13, I couldn't just choose one, but, if I really had to choose, 11 all the way. Good luck with the floors, I know what a headache a renovation can be, just hang in there 🙂
Donna A.November 7, 2012 at 7:40 pm
#1, #8 & 11 are my favs

I would rather go with Victorian combination fireplace. It looks very traditional and enhances the appearance of my living room. I just got it from Strippadoor.
