Warm up to these BoutiqueHomes with heavenly hearths.
What a design feat: rather than obstructing this snow globe of a view, this graceful fireplace enhances it. Located on the slopes of Whitefish and created by two French photographers, we recently added The Nooq to the collection. Needless to say, it’s getting a lot of well-deserved attention.
Planning a winter migration? Consider a stay in this eclectic cabin – part of a small village of restored properties – on a remote part of the Atlantic Coast. Imagine: a rebooted version of yourself, curled up next to the flame of this sculptural charcoal wonder (and don’t miss the record player and collection next to it!).
A 16th-century townhouse that was rescued from ruin by architect Anna Noguera, it artfully balances ancient beauty with elegantly employed materials for today’s living. This fireplace is just one of its many marks of modernity.
It’s a singularly human moment when a neat stack of logs beckons one of our most primitive skills. Enjoy a slow burn in the comfort of this cool and understated home that harkens back to the seafaring days of early inhabitants.
57 NORD, WESTER ROSS, SCOTLAND
All possibilities can be kindled at 57 Nord, a holiday letting that blends a raw West Highland agricultural vernacular to Scandinavian Modernism. Take it all in with a glass of the country’s best single malts.
We love a divine checkerboard floor, and coupled with this grand fireplace that’s filled with candles, we’re in design heaven. The rest of this 17th-century restored villa – decked out in stone and brick – is just as decadent.
You can read a historic fairy tale, or live inside one for a week. For the latter option, consider a stay inside this nine-suite castle-turned-boutique hotel and residence, on an enchanting hilltop in Tuscany. The best seats in the house face a giant fireplace within one of the bedrooms.
We appreciate this corner inside a luxury boutique hotel in Portugal, because sometimes all you need is a sleek wood burner, a book, and some tea and cake. Especially as a respite between other activities: like a massage at the on-site spa, or one of many nature excursions in the region.
Taking to the desert is always a good idea, but there’s a particular beauty to its winters. This 1962-built ranch-style home, just minutes from the west entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, immerses you in the rugged landscape and crisp air. Hold your hands to this sleek fire pit and take it all in.
