Decorating Ideas for your Halifax NS Fireplace

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 by Polycorp

A fireplace adds ambiance, value and warmth to any space it occupies. It’s also a focal point that automatically draws attention. Explore these fireplace decorating tips to dress up the fireplace in the great room of your Halifax NS new home.

When placed in the right spot a mirror can reflect sunlight or something exciting like a light fixture, decorative table or art piece. Lean or hang a medium sized decorative or framed mirror above the fireplace. Increase depth of the room and build a layered look by placing a smaller mirror over it.  Opt for round or triangular shaped mirrors to contrast the square shaped windows that may be on either side. This is sure to be a great addition to your home design.

Your great room can also double as a media room. Snuggle up with your favorite snack to watch a movie in front of your fireplace.  Fill the built-ins with your media player and Blu-Ray movies.

Holidays and seasons provide the perfect inspiration for decorating the fireplace.  Fall into the season with an autumn inspired mantle.  Hang a fall themed art piece above the fireplace.  Pull in colors from the art piece and fireplace to decorate your mantle, adjacent window sill and built-ins in your new home in Halifax NS.  A tall vase filled with bronze branches, leaf filled lanterns, apothecary glass jars filled with acorns, Indian corn in wicker baskets, fall leaf candles, pinecones, grouped gourds and garland are ideal fall accessories to fill these spaces.

We hope these ideas will inspire you to create a beautiful area surrounding your fireplace.  What can be better as fall arrives than cozy moments spent in front of the fireplace listening to the crackling sound of wood burning and watching the flickering light from the fire?
