The vine is Boston Ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata). When it wanders over the fire place, it gets crispy, so I just prune it to keep if from growing into that space. The fire place is gas.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Climbing Plants Suit Small Gardens
Soften Imposing HardscapesThe boundaries of small, enclosed spaces can be overpowering, and through the use of plants we can soften and even decorate garden walls in the same way we use wallpaper in our homes. Here, evergreen ivy covers the wall and surrounds the outdoor fireplace, but is kept carefully under control. Create an even more decorative use of ivy by planting different varieties together, allowing them to grow and interweave for a kaleidoscope of colors.
Imagine this outdoor living room with different furniture — maybe white wicker. It would feel lost in this beautiful environment. Instead, this furniture is bold and confident. Substantial in size, the teak sofa and armchairs relate beautifully to the other features of this outdoor room, including the oversize bluestone pavers and fireplace wall. The furniture is also scaled comfortably for the exterior setting, where large conifers loom overhead.
