Is anything cozier than a crackling fire? These fireplaces, fire bowls, and fire pits have been “warm” spots in our outdoor articles all year at Stylish Eve, and they’re among our favorites. If you’re thinking of putting a fire feature into your back yard or outdoor living area, there’s plenty of inspiration here ¬— from full-fledged outdoor rooms with enclosed kitchens, to a built-in concrete bench around a “campfire” where the kids toast marshmallows! Outdoor fireplaces can be small — take a look at the brick enclosure with a wire grill top that can double as a cooking spot — or lavish, as in the full-wall model that graces a cooking and entertaining area that’s an extension of the house itself. You can set up a fire pit so your guests can keep warm and enjoy a spectacular view — or make it the center of a spiral of patio stone, within a secure brick-walled enclosure, for a quiet meditative spot.

Fire pits can accent the center of a formal garden, with stone paths in geometric designs around them; they can serve as “spotlights” in a terraced bed; or — one of our very favorites — they can even be part of your pool! If you’ve never thought of mixing fire and water…think again. A wall of cascades looks spectacular with fire bowls at each end; up-lighting your pool at night with a combination of regular electric light and reflected firelight is nothing short of breathtaking. Whether your outdoor fireplace is inserted in a sleek concrete wall, stands on its own before casual Adirondack chairs, or is one of your sources of light and cooking heat…peruse these ideas, “strike the match” on one of your own, and enjoy!
