Those warm and cosy winter nights are just around the corner and decorating your fireplace will make your living room even cosier. Not every house has one, but any mantlepiece, shelving or side table can be accessorised using the same principles!

Candles Galore

Some fireplaces are merely decorative, so adding candles will add fire to your fireplace in a toned down, cosy way. Not only will they look good, but they’ll also smell good! As we head into the festive season, choose warm cinnamon or fir tree scents to really create some Christmassy vibes.

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Choosing a specific colour or colour theme to decorate your fireplace is the easiest and most effective way to create a mood in your room. Aside from the classic Christmas green and red, introducing white to your mantlepiece with white candles, stockings and garlands creates a clean, modern take on a festive colour palette. Plus, it will feel as though Jack Frost has swept some winter snow into your home.

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Flowers and indoor plants are the obvious choice for brightening up any surface, making it feel fresh and smell delightful. But Christmas calls for something a little different. Adding tiny Christmas trees to your mantlepiece are a unique and extremely cute way to make your fireplace full of festive cheer.


However you decide to accessorise your fireplace this festive season keep it warm, cosy and personal to you. As the focal point of your room it’s important that your fireplace and mantel reflect you, and make you happy within your home.
