Fireplace Tools and Log Holders

The Fall season is here, with rain (in Los Angeles of all places!) and cooler temperatures. If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace to cozy up to, here are three ways to give it a whole new look for the season. 

Start with the fireplace tool set. These come in a wide range of styles, from ornate to rustic.

Most feature a brush, tongs and ashes scoop. Fancier designs, like the one above, give you storage for logs and kindling.

Wall Art and Wall Decor

Next, you'll want to accent the mantel.

If you have just one large painting or photo above the fireplace on a mantel, try adding additional wall decor pieces.

Odd numbers of framed prints or wall decor items always look best, say 3 or 5. Matching prints, like those above, are a great way to add multiple items.

And you don't have to get fancy and hang them; just lean them against the wall for a more casual look that can be easily switched around. 

Decorative Candleholders

If you are stuck on using just one painting or wall decor accent above the fireplace, here's another approach to try.

Add decorative objects below the painting on the fireplace mantel to create a sense of depth and dimension.

The objects can be prized collectables from around your home or seasonal accents like pine cones and pumpkins. Candleholders, like the twig and branch-themed design above, are always a classic touch. 

Got an idea of your own? Let us know and we'll blog about it!

  • The fireplace is for all season. It helps people to reminisce. When your in front of dancing fire you will feel relaxed. Cleaning the dust is a one way of taking good care of a fireplace. You must do it regularly so that you can avoid the disease coming from the dust.
