Whether you are a newly-wed couple or a family moving to a new city, new home-buyers are looking for different features in their homes. They want a certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but they also look for charm and uniqueness in a home. Fireplaces can add personality to a room making your home feel special. Today we will be sharing some tips on how you can add charm to your home through your fireplace styling. Get inspired and learn how to achieve this look whether you have an existing fireplace in the home or not.
There are multiple ways to go about accessorizing your fireplace. We love adding artwork above the mantle. Do you have a wall-mounted flat screen TV above the fireplace? It’s no big deal because you can still incorporate artwork on top of the mantle. Placing framed photos or prints on top of the mantle, leaning some against the wall will help to give your fireplace some dimension. Layer in greenery and décor for even more interest.
Layering objects is key to any good design and remember your fireplace decor should extend beyond the mantle. You can give your fireplace setting a comfy, yet sophisticated feel by adding a chair or an ottoman for people to sit and cozy up by the fire. You can freshen up your room by refinishing your fireplace. Check out our fireplace Pinterest board for lots of inspiration and DIY tutorials that will help guide you in revamping your fireplace.
We love faux fireplaces! DIY faux fireplaces are becoming quite trendy for many homeowners. People that once had no existing fireplace can add that charm into their home. Whether your style is rustic charm or more of a modern feel, these fireplaces can be incorporated into almost any room in your house. With just one weekend and a little hard work, you can make your very own faux fireplace. Once you've tackled your faux fireplace, try adding stacked books, baskets, and large vases on the floor in front of the fireplace.

Stacking short logs about halfway up the fireplace will draw attention to your lovely DIY project. Here is another great example of layering pieces on the mantle. The greenery and the short logs complement each other, giving off an earthy, natural vibe.
Add candles in various heights to create visual interest on your mantle. The cascading greenery and flowers give this image above an enchanted garden feel. We love this look for weddings and other special occasions.
Instead of candles, try using lanterns for an elegant addition inside a faux or non-working fireplace. Lanterns are multi-functional and can be used to decorate for any holiday. But, our favorite is a fall display with pumpkins, gourds, and autumn leaves.
Start off this autumn with a gorgeous fireplace setup just like this one. Here’s to fall and patiently waiting to start up the fireplace whenever it decides to cool off. What is your favorite thing about fall? Let us know in the comment section below!
