Interior Design: Fire and Water Inside and Out?

If you’ve been trend watching this year, you’ve noticed the growing popularity of fire and water features outdoors.  But now I’m seeing the trend move indoors which is so exciting.  For years I’ve recommended water features and fire features for indoor spaces to my interior design clients because of the ambiance it creates but haven’t had much selection.  Now the selection is growing by leaps and bounds.

There’s nothing better than fire and water to create just the perfect ambiance outdoors or in!  But if you can’t afford to add one of these wonderful features, you can still add a beautiful fire feature to your home by buying a container to burn gel fuel which you could place on top of pillars, in urns or other containers.
