Even though we're well on our way to Summer beach days, that doesn't mean your fireplace is hibernating for the season. Indeed, chilly Spring and Summer nights are perfect for a romantic fire-lit evening. One way to update your fireplace is by replacing a Winter-themed wood carrier with something lighter on the eye, such as this woven basket. The switch instantly updates the fireplace, and adds an unexpected texture to the room.
Baby, it's cold outside. And it's cold inside, too. If you have a fireplace in your house, it's most likely going to be seeing a lot of action pretty soon. And you know what that means? It means that it better look good for all the eyes on it. So for the latest Casa Craving Challenge, I'd like you to deck out a fireplace so that it's not only functional with all the necessary tools to keep you warm, but is also eye-catching.
Televisions are no longer the center of attention when the logs start burning. So, you can't ignore your fireplace mantels, bases, and the walls above them. What fireplace tools would you use? Log holders? What artwork, candles, sconces, and decorative accents would you put on your mantel? What small furniture, if any, would you put near your fireplace? What tiles or bricks would you choose for it?
Tell me by creating Casa Cravings and tagging your Cravings with the phrase eye-catching fireplace, and I'll feature the results next Wednesday, Dec. 5. Even better, you can create a list of your bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions.
