Express Your Self: Special & Edgy Fireplace Decor

Coming into the homestretch of winter, if you’re lucky sufficient to have a fireplace in your property, I hope you are enjoying it. Fireplaces are a significant benefit to any property, the 2 functionally (specifically in the cold weather) and aesthetically. They offer a prominent visual feature, balance, and symmetry to a space. But if you are struggling with realizing what to do with your fireplace décor to make it distinctive and non-bland, you are not alone!

Verify out some of these inspiring techniques to make your fireplace stand out and send the visual message that you want to send.

Animal Bust.

Embrace the inherent naturalness of a fireplace by topping issues off with an animal bust. Actual, faux, or funky – this trend provides persona to all décor designs, not to mention dimension to the fireplace.

A Single Easy Vase.

A single vase, in a contrasting color to the fireplace itself, provides a softening but even now modern really feel to the a lot of correct angles that can surround a fireplace. (Bonus: carry on the vase theme in other places of the area for continuity.)

Photograph Collage.

Adds character, daily life, and colour to the fireplace scene…not to mention conversation starters, and you can alter out photographs seasonally as you want. It’s a win-win.


Retaining issues edited to one particular basic lineup of a few comparable objects, like these bird statues, can have a gorgeous influence.


We’ve all noticed mirrors topping the fireplace mantel, and even though it is a choice that surely has its advantages (e.g., area-expanding reflection), it is not terribly exclusive. But take the mirror concept and twist it a bit – say, for instance, layering a framed mirror in excess of a large wall-mounted, and you’ve acquired your self a distinctive fireplace decorating notion.

Allow it Be.

If a fireplace design encompasses the entire wall, like this gorgeous stone characteristic right here, it could be preferable to let the function wall stand alone, rather than making an attempt to decorate and beautify some thing that is inherently aesthetic currently.


To set the fireplace apart from the rest of the room, to feature it appropriately, some fantastic contemporary wallpaper can do the task like nothing else. This wallpaper even aids to balance out (camouflage?) the large flat-screen Television over the fireplace, which is typically a significantly less-than-ideal décor move.

Contemporary Art.

A fireplace, what with its warm glow and all, tends to have a slightly traditional vibe no matter what the design is. Mounting 1 or 2 oversized pieces of modern art nearby is a funky-edgy twist to the whole cozy-up-around-the-fireplace scene.

Geometric Display.

Mix many interestingly shaped products, in this situation mirrors, and develop your very own above-fireplace geometric motif for a amazing modern search.
