So you have a non-working fireplace. So what! How many times would you really light a fire anyway? I do happen to have a working fireplace that we MAYBE light 2 times a year. By the time we think about hauling logs in from outside (after we make sure they’re dry, which is rare as a result of the unpredictable New England weather!), getting the fire properly lit, smoking out the house because we can’t get the flu right….forget it-I’ll just light a few candles for the effect!!
Bottom line is, fireplaces make a beautiful addition to a home weather working or not, and sometimes they are even more beautiful when we enhance them with some of the lovely options below…

For the beach lovers, coral and sea shells in your unused fireplace!
An elegant option for the nature lover’s non-working fireplace, moss and seasonal greenery, with a few candles (I recommend flame less around all those plants!)
Pumpkins galore! Overload your fireplace with pumpkins and gourds for a festive fall look, showcase family painted pumpkins for a look that’s fun and personalized!
For the holidays, arrange ornaments of varying sizes in your non-working fireplace, gorgeous!
