With fall’s arrival days grow shorter and a little colder, and leaves of trees turn many marvelous shades of marigold. Thoughts too turn inward, to hearth and home, as we ready ourselves for the holiday season and entertaining family and friends. And nothing says come in and stay awhile quite like the sight of a fire roaring in the fireplace.
But if you happen to live in a home with a non-working fireplace, you can still create a warm, inviting look that will make the hearth of your home both a place of gathering and a focal point of the room. We found some pretty stunning examples of fireplace design ideas, like the one above from Michelle’s Sweet Somethings Design blog, arrayed with candles in autumnal colors, wicker balls and scatterings of natural fall accents.
