I have been looking into getting some birch logs for the upstairs fireplace. I think since it is painted black inside, the white logs will really pop. The fireplace is workable, but I hate to use it. I want the one on the lower level to be the one we use regularly instead. I hopped on pinterest to find some inspiration.
I love this design for the holidays. I am actually doing something similar for our fireplace to break up the massive marble. This is so simple and quiet.
