If your Troy 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. But it doesn’t need to be that way. There are a lot of things that you can do to dress it up, turning it into a beautiful 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 insides of a clean fireplace. Large potted ferns or other greenery could also make a beautiful statement on either side of your fireplace surround.
Set the Night Aglow
If a bit of romance is more your style, consider 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 arranged to make a lovely display. When lit, candles will lend a warm ambiance to the room.
Add Artistic Flair
To make your fireplace stand out, try 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 lend color and vibrancy to the room in a cool, attractive way.
Reflect the Light
For a design with a twist, consider adding a mirror inside of your fireplace area. Whether alone or combined with other décor items, a mirror can help bring light to your interior spaces. Both eye-catching and unexpected, an ornamental mirror may be just the thing you need to give your fireplace a warm-weather facelift.
Channel the Sea
For a more beachy feel, try filling a decorative basket with seashells and coral and placing it inside your empty fireplace. Blue glass vases and other elements can also bring that seaside aesthetic right into your Troy home.
To keep a rustic theme on point, a great option is 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.
