In the past, the hearth was a gathering place in many homes, providing warmth for the house and heat for the cooking of daily meals. Today we refer to it as a fireplace where we can create a traditional wood-burning cove or a modern fuel flame. Either way, it is a focal point that creates ambiance and romance.

So what do you do during the spring and summer months? Here are a few ideas to maintain its focus in your room.
