By: adminPicture This. You are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your extended family as holiday smells and music swirl around your kitchen. As you sip on a glass of wine, you are excited to show off your new living room addition, which you just bought new furniture for and decorated for the holidays. After the family begins to arrive and hugs are exchanged in the foyer, you steer them into your living room for the grand tour and bask in the 'oohs' and 'ahhhs' as you describe the ins and outs of your recent remodel. Then, in a quiet admission only you can make out, you hear your mother-in-law say, 'That fireplace is gorgeous.'
