How to Style a Fireplace During Warm Weather Months

Vintage Fireplace Styled with Flowers and MirrorsIf your Bannock County rental house has a fireplace, you might be speculating how to incorporate it into your decorating style. In the spring and summer, it’s typically too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. But this isn’t how it should be. There are numerous things that you can do to dress it up, making it a gorgeous focal point of any room.

Go Green & Natural

A convenient way to lend some greenery to your fireplace is with houseplants or flower arrangements. Consider adding potted plants to the mantel or put a few in a clean fireplace. Big potted ferns or other greenery might create a great statement on either side of your fireplace surround.

Set the Night Aglow

If a bit of romance is more your style, try adding a candle arrangement to your clean-swept mantel. Scented candles can be used to evoke exotic places or tastes, while candlesticks and pillar candles in various lengths can be arranged to make a lovely display. When set alight, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.

Add Artistic Flair

To make your fireplace be highlighted, make an effort to decorate 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 your place in a cool, attractive way.

Reflect the Light

For a unique design, try adding a mirror within your fireplace area. Whether by itself or in conjunction with other décor items, a mirror can help provide light to your interior spaces. An ornamental mirror, which is both eye-catching and surprising, could be just what you need to give your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.

Channel the Sea

For a more beachy feel, start filling a decorative basket with seashells and coral and put them in your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also bring about that seaside aesthetic perfectly into your Bannock County home.

Rustic Comfort

To keep a rustic theme on point, it is a good idea to stack firewood in your fireplace area. Utilize aspen or other decorative woods to provide a sense of the outdoors directly in your front area. Once the weather cools down, you’ll have plenty of fuel to keep your home warm and cozy.
