Christmas Decorating Ideas: Spruce Up Your Fireplace for the Yuletide Season

Beautiful Christmas decoration set on a living room It seems like a no-brainer for some, but decorating your new fireplace for the upcoming holiday season could prove to be a challenge if you don’t know how to mix and match some ornamental pieces.

Comfort Solutions and other experts list some tips on how you can beautify your new fireplace in your Salt Lake City home:

  • Go against the flow

Do the unconventional. Provide contrast to a matte white fireplace by decorating it with metallic accessories, as well as decors made from dried raw materials. An example by HGTV in a listicle titled “28 Designer Holiday Mantels to Recreate at Home” embodies such a bold experiment. It features a white fireplace mantel adorned with a dark brown wreath, miniature pines, antlers, a garland in the backdrop, and oddly enough, a bunch of down feathers.

  • Go traditional

Use garlands, flowers, and candles to add a nice, homey touch to an otherwise unlively space, according to Country Living. The greenery of the garlands livens up the fireplace, while the flowers are something to rest your eyes on. The candles lend warmth to any room — perfect when the family is huddled together in the living area.

  • Consider eclectic items

In several examples curated by home improvement and interior design website House Beautiful, one common theme that stands out is the use of eclectic designs, textures, and materials. The first example decorates a fireplace made out of limestone with an antique sunburst mirror. The second shows how black and white Moroccan tiles were used as an outer layer for the fireplace mantel. If you’re considering going for this look, you can complete it with a white miniature Christmas tree, along with candles and silver picture frames.
