I really like the dramatic look of branches in a vase.

We have a wood burning insert, a pellet stove, and an electric fireplace in our house. Between the three of them they really keep the place cozy. I have to say the electric fireplace is the easiest to keep clean - no ashes!
I like the look of bookshelves framing a fireplace. Just add a chaise and or a comfy chair and you have a reading nook.
