Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't have an inviting glow about your house. With all these things I've rounded up you can have the glow without the added heat, because trust me, in Texas, we don't need any extra heat. Adding a candle or lantern to a room just adds another layer of comfort and warmth, or bring votives and lanterns outside for a beautiful evening glow on your patio. By this time of the year, the fireplace industry has hit a slump due to lack of demand for heating devices, but here's the good news they start really dropping prices when summer approaches. It's kind of like buying bathing suits in the winter, or Christmas lights in the spring; you always find the best deals when things are in their off-season. Anyways I digress, instead of trying to add a glow with real wood and flame, you can add a visual glow with an electric fireplace and leave the actual heat setting off.
With the release of so many great movies this year (*cough* The Hunger Games *cough*) there’s nothing I love more than to have a couple of friends over for an evening of movies, catching up and fun. To make sure that the only decisions you’ll need to make on movie night is whether to watch a chick flick or to have that second helping of chips and guacamole you’ll want to make sure you have the perfect room setting before your guests arrive.
Do you love prancing around your home and seeing the presence of Christmas around you? Me too! That’s why I was struggling with the decision of not putting up a tree, but craving to display our ornaments and put up some holiday decor to infuse our home with Christmas anticipation. I needed to focus! So, I narrowed down my projects and decided to concentrate on the dining table, fireplace area and front door.
Fall is almost here! I can feel a shift in the weather (aka no more searing heat), I don't have to burn holes in my wallet by cranking the A/C down, there is less usage of my Coolerest Sleep Pad, and I finally feel like I can cuddle up with a warm cup of hot coca and a soft throw around a fireplace (check out these electric fireplaces if you live in an apartment or home without a fireplace set-up). I went searching for a couple of throws that I could see myself using this season. The throw I'm currently using are quite old and dingy, no matter how many times I wash it. These throws actually go from lightest to heaviest (completely unintentional I promise) which is funny because I can totally see myself trading throws each month as the year gets colder since in Texas it doesn't truly cool off for a few more weeks.
I know, you're thinking "Shannon, it's only August! Why in the world are you posting about fireplaces?!" Well my friends, now is the time to score some major deals on fireplaces. Since summertime is not the most profitable portion of the year for fireplace companies many companies slash prices to improve sales. Also it's at this time of year when they clear out old models to make room for new ones, so many of last years fireplace models are on clearance.
