A fireplace can be a focal point in any room of the home. What is placed on the fireplace mantel and the wall disguising the chimney can balance the setting and further qualify the fireplace as a focal point. Choose decorating pieces based on the depth of the mantel, the makeup of the chimney wall (like plaster or brick), and the decor of the room.
When there’s a chill in the air, nothing beats the warm and comforting glow of a blazing fireplace. These cozy mantels will keep you warm all season long. Local artwork is a meaningful accessory. A locally painted scene of Florida live oaks hangs above this family room’s cast-stone fireplace.
