Let's start with a simply classic idea for furnishing the fireplace at home: the mirror! Adding a reflective surface above the fireplace is a great idea for decorating the living room and space above the fireplace, but remember that mirrors are a great help in increasing the perceived depth of the room. Not a bad trick, especially if your living area is small.

Decorate the mantel with paintings

As you know, paintings look good almost anywhere in the house. Also try them as decorative elements for the mantel! This way you can create a small art gallery in the living room and enhance your fireplace even more.

Opt for abstract paintings or prints to give a modern touch to the living room, like in this photo you see above, but there are no limits to imagination and styles. Choose the paintings that best suit your home and your taste and start creating your composition to furnish the fireplace!

Lightness and imagination: furnishing the fireplace with empty frames

If you don't know what to put on the mantel and you are looking for a really intriguing idea, take a look above. Just like paintings, even empty frames can be transformed into real decorative elements for the fireplace!

Choose wooden frames (even better if aged) or wrought iron to create a small country chic or Provencal setting, but you can also opt for a more minimalist and modern decorative style. Empty frames are a truly versatile and original detail to furnish the fireplace with a touch of lightness and without crowding the shelf too much.

The autumn idea: decorate the fireplace with pumpkins!

The autumnal idea par excellence to decorate the fireplace! Pumpkins are a bit of a symbol of autumn (and of Halloween, of course), why not use them to decorate the fireplace before winter?

A tip: use an autumn palette by balancing the orange of the pumpkins with the brown (the color of the dead leaves) and some white elements to lighten the setting. The result? Look at the photo above and get ready to impress your guests!

Rustic style and country charm: decorate the fireplace with old vases
