Even though we are ready for warmer weather, you may be missing all those nice, cozy fires you had all winter long. Want to keep your fireplace the focal point of the room, but not sure how to make it special this spring? Try these fresh ideas and add a whole new kind of warmth to your room.
Consider updating your mantel with reclaimed wood, then take some inspiration from Joanna Gaines and add lots of florals, pottery, and candles for a fresh, yet neutral spring look. Don’t forget to clean out your fireplace and add a decorative basket in the opening.
Bring on the art
Add some vibrancy to your mantel with some new artwork. Bright greens, oranges, and even pink art in various sizes offset in natural light wood or brass frame make for an easy, yet dramatic change.
Use your fireplace and hearth to create your own mini garden. Clean out your fireplace and consider painting the brick black to hide soot. Then add various plants in clean, white pots of different shapes and sizes to really make an impact in the room.
Probably one of the easiest, and inexpensive ways to bring spring to your fireplace is to add your favorite fresh flowers. Don’t be afraid to mix and match both floral stems and vases to brighten up your mantel. Added bonus with this idea is you can change it out each week, keeping the room fresh.
