In fact, with a little imagination and ingenuity, you can take advantage of your fireplace all year round. Next, you’ll discover the ways to make this area one of the most stylish places in your home.

Rustic fireplace

There are two areas of your fireplace that you must consider. The first is the hearth and the second is the mantlepiece above the fireplace; both areas must be well decorated.

To compensate for the interior darkness, your fireplace needs some light and clarity on it. And there’s nothing better than an oversized mirror to achieve this.

If you have enough space for it, add glass vases and ornaments for even more clarity and focus. Remember that flowers add a very elegant touch to any atmosphere.

During the months when your fire remains unlit, you can think about bringing that black hole to life. Otherwise, this space will eat up all the light in the room.

Choose accessories in light and vivid colors. They can be baskets of natural fibers, a centerpiece of leaves and artificial wildflowers, or some large candles that you can light at night to create an atmosphere.

Some great ideas to decorate your fireplace

Decorate the fireplace

A natural fireplace

Plants are a great way to decorate your home. They’re capable of purifying the air, balancing energies, and beautifying any space.

An interesting idea is to use several plants in pots of different sizes in the hearth and the surrounding area. Also, we suggest you grow some hanging plants on your mantlepiece so that they fall gracefully and bring the outdoors indoors!

Add flame to the fire

Another proposal that’s often seen on Pinterest is to decorate fireplaces with candles. This is a resource that you can keep and use in both the cold and warm months.

Place candles of different sizes in candle holders that give a more rustic touch to your room. If you fear fire because you have pets or children at home, you can opt for ones with led lights, They’re just as beautiful and much safer.

A fireplace with a country feel

Beyond marble fireplaces with moldings and ornaments, there are also those made of stone or those that are covered with white lime and wooden beams. These will always remind you of grand country houses.

For these fireplaces, natural fiber baskets are a very successful option and if you add dry leaves or pinecones, you’ll enjoy an autumnal composition.

To top it off, you can also decorate the wall that presides over your fireplace with a collection of plates, some botanical-inspired prints, or straw hats.

Christmas and chimneys: a match made in heaven


Santa uses the chimney to visit the homes of those who’ve behaved well! So this area deserves a special touch during the festive season.

The family stockings should hang over the mantlepiece. The candles, the gold decorations, the greens, the reds, and the bright sparkles will be the festive focus that takes all prominence.

Don’t limit yourself when it comes to inspiration and let your fireplace create a warm and cozy atmosphere. Also, don’t forget to hang a large wreath over your fireplace to attract good luck.

If you have a fireplace, you have a treasure! With these tips and ideas, you’ll be able to get much more out of it throughout the year. Whether you light your fire or not, it’s a feature of your home and it deserves your attention accordingly.
