How To Keep Your Fireplace Decor Simple For The Summer

| | |

I will show you how to keep your fireplace decor fresh, simple and organic for the summer!

When decorating my family room for the summer months, I was on a mission to keep the fireplace decor simple.  Hopefully,  I’ve managed to pull that off by using a few simple, natural and organic elements.

With the arrival of summer and the temperature and humidity on the rise, I wanted the decor inside my home to stay on the simple organic side.  The feeling I wanted in my home was for it to feel light, fresh and welcoming, so no heavy or bulky decorations for me this time of year.

I added a small amount of blue and green, to tie in with the summer decor in my dining room and breakfast nook, but I mainly focused on natural organic elements for my summer fireplace.

A fireplace mantel with a basket filled with daisies hanging above.

A hanging basket, overflowing with daisies, is a sure sign that summer has arrived at Worthing Court!  A crockery vase is filled with unexpected spindles, instead of stick filler of some kind.  A flat basket filled with draping greenery vine and a grapewood branch dressed with wooden beads and jute tassels fills out the rest of the mantel.

Down on the hearth, I’ve continued the simple and organic theme by using a woven basket to contain a large fern and my spikey wood orb.  A tiny wall basket, attached to the brick with a removable hook helps to fill a spot that looked a little too empty.

There is a grey armchair with pillows beside the fireplace.

This is just a little peek at one side of my summer family room.  I hope you’ll come back on Monday for the full summer tour of my home!

    LOVE! Did you make the beaded string/garland? Where did you get the beads? I *need* to make one. 😉

    Love the basket ‘wreath’ with the daisies. I just picked up a summery straw purse at a yard sale on Saturday… $1! I’m gonna fill it with flowers and put it on my door. 🙂

    1. Hi Julie. No, I didn’t make the beaded garland. I just walked into Target a couple of weeks ago and there it was! It was in a display with several of their new items for spring/summer. Love your idea for the door basket!

  16. The moment I saw the basket with daisies, I knew my fireplace décor needed the same thing! We usually have an antique mirror over the mantle, but the basket is so light and fresh…going to add this tomorrow! Thanks!

  17. So beautiful!! I love the ideas you shared. Could you tell me where you found the large wood and metal piece on your mantel?

  18. So simple and so elegant! I really like this a lot. It’s just beautiful!

  19. What a beautiful home! Love the fireplace, so pretty. Sharing on FB. Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Have a great week!

  20. Wow! I’m loving every element of this mantel and your living room! The touches of blue and wood are perfect and very inspiring. Simple and beautiful and an amazing share for the #HomeMattersParty

  21. So pretty! I really want to paint my fireplace. Love the ideas. Thanks for sharing at the #InspirationSpotlight party @DearCreatives Pinned & shared.

  22. Love the hanging wicker basket with daisies! Also I’ll be checking target to see if they still have any bead garland still in stock. Great look!

  23. Love it all. Would like to know the paint color.

    1. Hi Linda. The wall color is Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and the paint used on the fireplace is Sherwin Williams Extra White.

  24. Where did you find the hanging basket? It’s an awesome decorative piece thats so versatile!

    1. Hi Lachelle. I found the basket at World Market. 😀

  25. I was wondering where the large white cathedral wall art is from over your fireplace? It’s beautiful!

    1. Thank you! That piece came from Kirkland’s, but it’s no longer available. 🙁

  26. Your ideas on how to use colors like blue and green when decorating a fireplace for summer were really impressive. We plan to do some renovations to our living room which includes adding a new fireplace to it, and decorating it this way can really round out the natural look we’ve been planning for the entire house. Once I find a place that offers branded fireplaces and installation services, I’ll make sure that we get these kinds of decorations for that room.

  27. Love you ideas & decor. I am sure you have shared it before & probably even to me BUT, the gray chair, where did you get it?
    Thank you so much!!

    1. Thank you so much! That little gray chair came from Hayneedle a few years ago.
