How to Style a Fireplace During Warm Weather Months

Vintage Fireplace Styled with Flowers and MirrorsIf your Berkeley rental house has a fireplace, you may be unsure how to incorporate it into your decorating style. At some point in spring and summer, it’s often too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. However, this should not be the case. There are multiple approaches to dress it up, transforming it into an attractive focal point of any room.

Go Green & Natural

An easy option 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. Massive potted ferns or other greenery might also provide a lovely statement along both sides of your fireplace surround.

Set the Night Aglow

If a sense of romance is more your style, consider 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 different lengths can be organized to generate a lovely display. When lit, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.

Add Artistic Flair

To emphasize your fireplace, consider 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 deliver color and vibrancy to the area in a cool, attractive way.

Reflect the Light

If you want an astonishing design, try adding a mirror within your fireplace area. Whether alone or combined with other décor items, a mirror may help light up your interior spaces. Both stunning and unexpected, an ornamental mirror is perhaps exactly what you need to give your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.

Channel the Sea

If you’d like a beachy feel, begin to wrap a decorative basket with seashells and coral and put it within your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also give that seaside aesthetic right into your Berkeley home.

Rustic Comfort

To preserve a rustic theme on point, you need to stack firewood inside your fireplace area. Select aspen or other decorative woods to let you feel the outdoors right in your front room. Once the weather cools down, you’ll have a vast amount of fuel to maintain your home warm and cozy.
