How to dress a fireplace

October 28th, 2009 in Home Improvement

If you’re lucky you will have a fireplace somewhere in your home. The fireplace and its mantelpiece is bound to be the focal point of the room (unless of course your TV is massive).

It’s the perfect place to display your favourite objects, whether they be ornaments, pictures or knick knacks. I do think that the top of the mantelpiece is the one place where clutter and life should run amok.

Hanging a mirror above the fireplace is always popular, reflecting and bouncing light around the room. Please enjoy these fireplaces and ignore my comments if you don’t agree!

My home is my passion, I love to search for inspiration on decorating ideas, tips and hints for keeping things clean and tidy and great recipes to try out. When I'm not trawling through Pinterest or the Blogosphere, you can find me outside, usually running around with my dogs- I'm not sure which of us enjoy the walks more!
