Summer Fireplaces

Let our warm-weather ideas for filling your empty fireplace box show you how to light up a room without building a fire.

Display a collection

Wall cubes and glass vases filled with sand can hold an array of seaside artifacts from seashells to starfish & coral. Any grouping of related objects displayed in hurricane glasses on varied-height risers can become a stunning fireplace focal point and help you celebrate the season.

Bring the outdoors in

All-white vases in different sizes and shapes offer a visually united vignette for displaying fresh flowers from your garden. If you are worried about pollen in your house, use a big vase with lush silk hydrangeas or a large potted fern to decorate the space.

Stack it up

Vintage baskets fill empty space while offering the benefit of seasonal storage (extra perk!). You can also try stacking old wicker suitcases, hatboxes or books for an eclectic and fun look.

Let there be light

Fill the fireplace with lanterns of different sizes filled with flickering LED candles to offer a romantic look that will make the fireflies outside jealous.

Reflect an object

Leaned against the back of the fireplace box, a mirror doubles the impact of a simple arrangement of ceramic garden spheres or can highlight a unique architectural salvage piece adding dimension to the space.
