Outdoor Fireplaces

I do so love an outdoor fireplace!  I need to do more research on how they can be achieved in an environmentally friendly way.  Plus wood burning fireplaces are from what I understand pretty much forbidden in LA, but there is something so magical about sitting around a fire! Particularly if it's adjacent to a body of water - beach, pool, pond, spa, lake, whatever!  Some of my favorite outdoor fireplaces below.

How charming is this?  Love!

Glamorous fireplace by Jay Griffith for a family in Brentwood:

Gorgeous fireplace from the home of designer Billy Lehman of Aeries Development:

Insane infinity pool and fireplace in Malibu designed by Barry Beer, and below it another pool he designed in the Hollywood Hills:

Tranquil Courtyard in A. Quincy Jones' Holmby Hills Brody House:
Fireplace by a pool and spa in Berkeley by Thuilot Associates - divine!

Spanish style outdoor fireplaces and kitchens from two homes in LA, I'm loving the vines and all the hanging lanterns:

Sleek modern fireplace and pool in an Arizona Residence by repp design + construction:

I love the curves on this fireplace, not to mention the built in wood storage.  It makes me want to build an outdoor pizza oven, bad!

Funky fireplace at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs:

I love this oversize rustic brick fireplace, complete with built in potted plants!

How calming does this stunning indoor/ outdoor fireplace setting look?
