Houzz is the new way to design your home.
What about something more open?
Seating/firepit set up with dining table in front?
Seating on either side of fire pit with dining table to the front?
I just like it... back to the fire pit, but still open.
Some type of structure surrounding an open fire pit?
Fire pit next to dining area
Twinkle lights/dining/fire place
The fireplace is not overly tall and I like the stone work
stone floor & opening of the fire place
