How to Style a Fireplace During Warm Weather Months

Vintage Fireplace Styled with Flowers and MirrorsIf your Clayton rental house has a fireplace, you may be questioning how to incorporate it into your decorating style. In the middle of spring and summer, it’s usually too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. But that’s not how it should be. There are a lot of things that you can do to dress it up, converting it into a great focal point of any room.

Go Green & Natural

A simple way to lend some greenery to your fireplace is with houseplants or flower arrangements. Consider adding potted plants to the mantel or placing a few inside a clean fireplace. Tall potted ferns or other greenery could also produce an elegant 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 can be employed to evoke exotic places or tastes, while candlesticks and pillar candles in various heights can be put together to create a lovely display. When lit, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.

Add Artistic Flair

To make your fireplace look exceptional, try 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 give color and vibrancy to the room in a cool, attractive way.

Reflect the Light

For a design with a twist, try adding a mirror in the interior of your fireplace area. Whether alone or mixed with other décor items, a mirror can help produce light to your interior spaces. Both attention-grabbing and stunning, an ornamental mirror may be just the thing you need to give your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.

Channel the Sea

For a more beachy feel, try stuffing a decorative basket with seashells and coral and storing it inside your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also produce that seaside aesthetic right into your Clayton home.

Rustic Comfort

To keep a rustic theme on point, an excellent idea is to stack firewood inside your fireplace area. Use aspen or other decorative woods to generate a feeling of the outdoors right in your front room. Once the weather cools down, you’ll have plenty of fuel to keep your home warm and cozy.
