Tips for Perfectly Decorating Your Fireplace for the Holidays

As the holidays approach, people are beginning to decorate their homes. We’ve got some tips for decorating your fireplace. Whether you have a stone or brick fireplace, these decorations will look great on your mantle!

Decorating your fireplace: getting started

The first thing you’ll need to do is evaluate your own style. Do you tend towards modern design, classic, or a mix of all the styles? You’ll want your fireplace decorations to mesh well with the rest of your decor.

Cozy and classic

We’re a big fan of how stone fireplaces look with a cozy and classic theme. When decorating your fireplace with this theme, you’ll want to use classic colors: red, green, and gold. And if you have a stone fireplace, these colors provide a great contrast. Choose knit stockings to hang from the mantle to give it an extra homey touch! And of course, your holiday fireplace decor isn’t complete without a nice green wreath above the mantle.

Sleek and modern

The sleek and modern fireplace decor has become more popular in recent years. Stick to silver and gray for this style, maybe with a thin piece of garland to give it a pop of color. White lights can add extra oomph to this style as well! And if you have a modern concrete fireplace, decorating your fireplace in this sleek holiday style will bring the whole room together.

Young at heart (or in the home)
