How to Style a Fireplace During Warm Weather Months

Vintage Fireplace Styled with Flowers and MirrorsIf your Virginia Beach rental house has a fireplace, you may be wondering how to incorporate it into your decorating style. During the spring and summer, it’s often too warm for a fire, leaving your fireplace cold and empty. However, this is not what it should be. There are various approaches to dress it up, transforming it into a stunning 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 within a clean fireplace. Big potted ferns or other greenery could also create a lovely statement on either side of your fireplace surround.

Set the Night Aglow

If a sense of romance is more your style, start 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 utilized to create a lovely display. When lit, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.

Add Artistic Flair

To make your fireplace show up, think about 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 supply color and vibrancy to the area in a cool, appealing way.

Reflect the Light

For an exceptional design, try adding a mirror inside of your fireplace area. Whether solo or joined with other décor items, a mirror can help provide light to your interior spaces. Both gorgeous and extraordinary, an ornamental mirror may be just the thing you need to make your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.

Channel the Sea

If you want a beachy feel, start covering a decorative basket with seashells and coral and put it inside your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also give that seaside aesthetic right into your Virginia Beach home.

Rustic Comfort

To keep a rustic theme on point, you need to stack firewood inside your fireplace area. Use aspen or other decorative woods to create 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.
