Fall is the best time of year for fireplace decor as the temperature shifts from scorching summer heatwaves to crisp autumn breezes. The leaves are glowing with new colors that indicate a new season. So, naturally, everyone wants to celebrate this glorious time of year by decorating the inside of their home to match the beauty outside. While there isn't an article long enough to go through every type of fireplace décor out there, what we will do today is talk about 5 ways to decorate your fireplace for fall.
The first fireplace décor idea we have is Decorating the Mantle:
Mantles are a classic design piece that come in many styles. You can have a full fireplace mantle, mantle shelves, and corner fireplace mantles. While each is slightly different, they all include a flat surface that leaves room for decorations of all kinds. One way to decorate a fireplace mantle is to make a garland by twisting strands of fake leaves and vines. You can lay it across the mantle and/or weave it in and out of photo frames. You could also try adding small pumpkins or variations of candles mixed in with the garland. Any of these combinations will make your fireplace a beautiful focal point for your room.
The next type of fireplace décor we can discuss is Fireplace Screens:
Fireplace screens have a dual purpose when you have a wood burning fireplace. They can add a touch of flair to your fireplace décor and serve as protection from flying embers. If your wood fireplace is not burning or you have a gas fireplace, a fireplace screen's only use is for decoration. The great news is fireplace screens come in a variety of styles. So, this Uniflame Bowed Black Fireplace Screen is perfect if you are looking for something more modern. You could also give the Pilgrim grand oak fireplace screen a try if you want to keep with the traditional trees and leaves theme associated with fall.
The third fireplace décor idea you can consider is Andirons:
Andirons have been used for centuries to brace logs in wood burning fireplaces and to help air circulate under them. While many people use them in gas fireplaces, they only serve as decoration in those models. Andirons are great fireplace décor because you can choose black, silver, or gold (among other colors) and match them to your other décor. They are a great addition to any fall decorations.
A set like these Minutemen maple leaf andirons work as the finishing touch to bring all your decor together. If you'd like something a bit more elegant, you could try the Pilgrim fonda andirons in antique brass or black. This set is so stylish and sure to make a big statement right, front and center in your fireplace.
The fourth fall décor idea we have is Firebacks:
Firebacks are made to protect the walls of your fireplace as well as reflect heat back into your home. Their wide variety of design options makes them great for mixing into your fall decorations. The Pennsylvania field of leaves fireback has a traditional fall look with autumn leaves covering the piece. It is made of 100% cast iron which also gives it an antique feel too. If you want an outdoorsy style fireback this model from Pennsylvania has a lake theme with ducks and "autumn" written in bold letters.
The final option for fireplace decor is Hearth Rugs:
Hearth rugs are the last thing we will mention on the list of fireplace décor ideas for fall. Hearth rugs are like fireplace screens in the sense that they have a protective and decorative purpose. They are different than the average throw rug that is flammable and not good to sit next to your fireplace. Hearth rugs will protect your floors against flying embers and coals all while matching your mantel decorations and fireplace screen.
If you want to stick with the "leaves" theme of fall, you can try this Good of the woods hearth rug. The neutral brown and olive colors will blend nicely with just about any other décor you have sitting around your house. If you'd like a more colorful, rounded rug you could try this Goods of the woods beige rug with multi-colored leaves. Either of these rugs will be great options to add to your fall decorations.
