How to Style a Fireplace During Warm Weather Months

Vintage Fireplace Styled with Flowers and MirrorsIf your Meadowlakes rental house has a fireplace, you may be wondering how to incorporate it into your decorating style. For the time of spring and summer, it’s often too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. But this isn’t the way it should be. There are a variety of ways to dress it up, turning it into a lovely focal point in every room.

Go Green & Natural

One simple technique to lend some greenery to your fireplace is with houseplants or flower arrangements. Consider adding potted plants to the mantel or set them inside of a clean fireplace. Enormous potted ferns or other greenery could also make an impressive statement on either side of your fireplace surround.

Set the Night Aglow

If a little romance is more of your style, begin adding a candle arrangement to your clean-swept mantel. Scented candles are appropriate to evoke exotic places or tastes, while candlesticks and pillar candles can be organized in different sizes to create a lovely display. When set alight, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.

Add Artistic Flair

To make your fireplace stick out, consider decorating it in combination with a bold piece of artwork or ornamental fire grate. Whether hung over the mantel or set in front of the fireplace itself, an artistic piece will provide color and vibrancy to the room in a cool, pleasant manner.

Reflect the Light

For an exceptional design, think about adding a mirror to your fireplace area. Whether solo or in combination with other décor items, a mirror can help produce light for your interior spaces. Both good-looking and stunning, an ornamental mirror may be just the thing you need to give your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.

Channel the Sea

In case you love a beachy feel, consider filling a decorative basket with seashells and coral and put it inside your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also bring that seaside aesthetic right into your Meadowlakes home.

Rustic Comfort

To keep a rustic theme on point, it is advisable to stack firewood in your fireplace area. Pick aspen or other decorative woods to give an outdoors sensation right in your front room. When the weather cools down, you will have sufficient fuel to keep your home warm and cozy.
