Your fireplace functions as the heart of your home. What’s a cozy, fall day without crackling logs and a warm blanket? But if your chimney can’t handle the heat, there are still plenty of ways to decorate a non-working fireplace. These decor ideas dress up the mantle and hearth without relying on fire, so the centerpiece of your living room can always look its best year-round.
Put that hearth to work in the warm summer months: Stack interesting hardcovers, paperbacks, and magazines inside to create a collected focal point.
