It would probably be a good idea if you are building a house to also have a fireplace in the bedroom if you are not going to put in a whole house generator. We will have full house generator but I still want a fireplace :)
That Pottery Barn candle chandelier is perfection. My favorite design feature is the stone fireplace, it's so dramatic and rustic. These high ceilings are fantastic, totally transforms the space into more than just your typical living/family room.
