As we edge closer to Winter, my mind has turned to all things toasty and warm. So snuggle in, ’cause this blog post is on fire!

So it’s probably too warm in Queensland (where I’m based) for a fireplace – with only mild winters. And whilst I’m thankful for all that sunshine, sometimes it’s nice to be able to pop on your pyjamas and cosy up next to a roaring fire – something I only ever do when I’m holidaying down south or inland. For those of you who are in the market for a fireplace I’ve rounded up some of my favourite freestanding wood heaters from Oblica. I love the sleek tubular design of Invicta’s Alcor pictured above – something like this would work great in smaller spaces thanks to its slim design. Invicta’s Kazan (pictured very top) and Skanthern’s Shaker designs are also great choices (that bench seat adjoining the Shaker one is genius). Click here to check out their range.

Looking for a stylish yet rustic way to display all that chopped firewood? Unearthed Garden have a number of beautifully designed, Melbourne-made options including the Square Stack, Wood Stacker and Baby Stacker (pictured below). All of their stackers are available in a rust patina, or your choice of powdercoat paint.

If I had a proper backyard, a fire pit would be high on my agenda. The idea of sitting around a fire pit at night, toasting marshmallows and sipping on wine sounds like my idea of fun. And when I think of fire pits I’m always drawn to the rustic kind for their country charm – like the Angelina and Molly (Mel)Drum designs from Robert Plumb, pictured.
