Kick your decorations up a notch by adding mix-and-match items on either side of your fireplace. You can choose anything from accessories, photo frames, to books, plants, or even candles. Choose from mirrors, paintings, antiques, or even beautiful crockery like plates, to place above the fireplace.

Themed Fireplace

One of the best fireplace decoration ideas is to go with the ever-famous quote of Van der Rohe, ‘Less is more’. Express your minimalist approach by keeping your fireplace simple, although you may paint the background in a defining color, like the use of blackened steel by Atelier AM in the above setting.

You can choose from the festive, traditional, modern, cabin, mirrored, antique, French, and hundreds of other themes. Choose your theme in keeping with the surroundings of the fireplace because getting an awkward living room back in coordination is a costly project.

A Scented Fireplace? Yes, Please!

You can use the fruit of your liking and use its peels. Pine cones, cinnamon sticks, dried herbs, applewood, etc. are also used to create a fragrance in the fireplace.

Adopt a combination of these fireplace decoration ideas. Set the mood in your living room by creating an ambiance with glimmering light and flavorful scents. Chill beside your brand-new-looking fireplace. Now and then, switch between accessories to get a new decoration.
