4 Ideas for Fireplace Decorating

Light up a room without building a fire. Our warm-weather ideas for filling your empty fireplace box show you how.
  • Display a collection

    Wall cubes and glass vases filled with sand hold an array of seaside artifacts. Any grouping of related objects displayed on varied-height risers (or stacked books) can become a stunning fireplace focal point.

  • Celebrate your garden

    All-white vases in different sizes and shapes offer a visually united vignette for displaying fresh flowers. Or use a big vase with lush silk hydrangeas or a large potted Boston fern to decorate the space.

  • Stack it up

    Vintage baskets fill empty space while offering the benefit of seasonal storage. Also try stacking trunks, interesting old suitcases, hatboxes or small footstools.

  • Reflect an object

    Leaned against the back of the fireplace box, a mirror doubles the impact of a simple arrangement of ceramic garden spheres and one twisted branch. An artistic sculpture or a unique architectural salvage piece would also work.
