How to Style a Fireplace During Warm Weather Months

Vintage Fireplace Styled with Flowers and MirrorsIf your Washington rental house has a fireplace, you might be asking how to incorporate it into your decorating style. Amidst the spring and summer, it’s often too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are countless things that you can do to dress it up, making it look gorgeous focal point of any room.

Go Green & Natural

An easy approach to lend some greenery to your fireplace is with houseplants or flower arrangements. Try adding potted plants to the mantel or put a handful inside of a clean fireplace. Giant potted ferns or other greenery could also create a beautiful statement on either side of your fireplace surround.

Set the Night Aglow

If a bit of romance is more your style, think about adding a candle arrangement to your clean-swept mantel. Scented candles are suitable to evoke exotic places or tastes, while candlesticks and pillar candles in varying heights can be organized to create a lovely display. When ignited, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.

Add Artistic Flair

To make your fireplace noticeable, try decorating it in combination with a bold piece of artwork or ornamental fire grate. Whether hung above the mantel or set in front of the fireplace itself, an artistic piece will give color and vibrancy to the room in a nice, desirable way.

Reflect the Light

For a design with a twist, consider adding a mirror inside of your fireplace area. Whether alone or combined with other décor items, a mirror can help bring light to your interior spaces. Both impressive and astonishing, an ornamental mirror may be what you need to lend your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.

Channel the Sea

For a more beachy feel, try filling a decorative basket with seashells and coral and bring it inside your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can help add the seaside aesthetic right into your Washington home.

Rustic Comfort

To maintain a rustic theme on point, an ideal choice is to stack firewood inside your fireplace area. Utilize aspen or other decorative woods to generate a sense of the outdoors right in your front room. When the weather cools down, you’ll have enough fuel to keep your home warm and cozy.
