Kitchen Fireplaces

<span class=

So I know that interior design isn't something I normally talk about here but lately I've been daydreaming a lot about what I want when I'm older and settled down with a family.
My biggest obsession? Fireplaces in the kitchen! Not cooking fireplaces (that would be a disaster!) but ones that add a cozy, friendly feeling to the kitchen!
Isn't the above one beautiful?!

I can just imagine a house full of kids sitting eating grilled cheese and soup on a cold winter afternoon with the fireplace glowing in the kitchen! Rather than being a place to rush through it helps turn it into a room where you want to spend time! Plus, even in a small space, it helps the room seem more open and sophisticated. It also gives a focal point that isn't an appliance. I love big armchairs and couches in kitchens too...especially if you have a fireplace there!

My two favorite examples of the perfect fireplace kitchen-

:Sigh: Aren't they lovely?
If you take that idea and put it into this you'd have my ideal kitchen--maybe some day I'll be so lucky!

If any of these kitchens belong to you I'm green with envy!
