Ah, yes: my garden room (in my dreams)! If I am not mistaken, the front wall is formed by a roll-up garage door. Actually, this would be great for an art studio if the door has windows to let in light when the door is closed. That way, I could use it year-round.
Oh these fireplaces! I'm not sure if I ever liked them, but by now they are pure nostalgia for me. I'm not sure that I would actively remove one, if it were in my house, but I'm not sure that I would seek to add one, either. One thing I do know: white is for the timid. If you're going to do it, at least go for orange!
fabulous outside fireplace/lounge area. My idea is to have this next to an outdoor kitchen area. On the other side of the chimney is the living room on the 1st fl, & master bedroom directly above it, so that all can share the chimney. Yah for cozy warmth!
