Autumn is here! Fireplace decorating ideas

Fall is officially here. Though I would pick warm weather over cold weather any day, I still think fall is my favorite season. I love a fireplace, a chunky knit throw, and just the general "coziness" of the season. So I thought it'd be a good time to bring on the fall decorating inspiration!

Try holding on to a little bit of nature even when it's receding outside, by decorating the mantel with display boxes of interesting branches, pods, and other natural objects.

I really like the dramatic look of branches in a vase.

We have a wood burning insert, a pellet stove, and an electric fireplace in our house. Between the three of them they really keep the place cozy. I have to say the electric fireplace is the easiest to keep clean - no ashes!

I like the look of bookshelves framing a fireplace. Just add a chaise and or a comfy chair and you have a reading nook.

My favorite is the second one. The one with all the pumpkins. I'm on such a pumpkin/fall kick right now. Really cute, i just wish I had a fireplace.

Beautiful fireplaces. I wish I have one too. And I really love the second one and the last one. :)))

Really wish I didn't have a giant TV hanging above my fireplace. Would love to use that space for some autum decor!
