The master bedroom fireplace was installed yesterday and today. The fireplace is made by Town & Country . Searching for a direct-vent gas fireplace was very eye-opening for us as there are many unattractive, cheesy units out there and it was a real hunt to find a unit that looked as realistic as possible. What we love about this manufacturer is that they use what is called a disappearing glass which is a non-glare ceramic glass (really difficult to find), the firebox is very minimal, and you get to "design" your own fireplace- you pick the lining of the fireplace, and the type of fire you want. The see-thru fireplace between the kitchen and dining room is also a Town & Country.
We are looking for an antique mantle for the master bedroom. I have found one in an antique shop about 10 miles from us that I think is the one- it is very simple yet lovely. But, to be sure be drove to Vermont today to go to a salvage place we've been hearing about. It is in a little town called White River Junction and is about two hours North of us. We didn't find a mantle, but did find some interesting lighting fixtures and saw some pretty sites along the way.....

Thought this fixture might be fun in the kitchen pantry.
Or this one...
This charming lamp shop, in the same town, was a fun surprise! The artist hand paints the shades!
I love the one with the circles!
A covered bridge on the drive home.
This tall "tree" is really a cell tower camouflaged to look like a tree!
Oh, and this is the antique mantle that we are looking at for the master bedroom. Yes, it is $299!
