If your Chesterfield County rental house has a fireplace, you may be wondering how to incorporate it into your decorating style. Throughout the spring and summer, it’s regularly too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. But it doesn’t need to be that way. There are a lot of aspects that you can do to dress it up, turning it into a good-looking focal point of any room.
Go Green & Natural
An easy way to lend some greenery to your fireplace is with houseplants or flower arrangements. Try adding potted plants to the mantel or placing a few insides of a clean fireplace. Large potted ferns or other greenery could also make a gorgeous statement on whichever side of your fireplace surrounds it.
Set the Night Aglow
If a bit of romance is more your style, ponder on 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 varying heights can be settled to make a lovely display. When lit, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.
Add Artistic Flair
To make your fireplace stand out, 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 lend color and vibrancy to the room in a cool, attractive way.
Reflect the Light
For a design with a twist, consider adding a mirror inside of your fireplace area. Whether unaccompanied or combined with other décor items, a mirror can help bring light to your interior spaces. Both eye-catching and unexpected, 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 filling a decorative basket with seashells and coral and placing it inside your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also bring that seaside aesthetic right into your Chesterfield County home.
To keep a rustic theme on point, a great opportunity is to stack firewood inside your fireplace area. Use aspen or other decorative woods to generate a sense 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.
