One of the highlights of a home is the fireplace. There are a few highlights inside a house that is as impressionable as a setup that acts as a heat source and a form of entertainment at the same time.
Instead of watching the overly hyped news on television, why not simply enjoy the view of a fire crackling before your eyes? Adding to this form of entertainment is the collection of decor around it that can easily cater to any taste.
Okay, if you really want to watch the TV that bad, there are interior design ideas that can place it above the fireplace without it getting burned.
Fireplace Decor Ideas

Instead of black coal in Christmas stockings, why not simply go with black stockings that can be hung throughout the year?
2. Bunting Beauty
The decor of bunting draping across the fireplace can either be a year-round experience or time it for Valentine’s Day. Maybe there are other special occasions that come to mind. Who says we have to stick with Christmas stockings?
3. Easter Bunnies
Among folks who have a fireplace that celebrates Easter, use this occasion to make the most out of it.

6. Go Flora
Floral framing around an old fireplace spruces up its surrounding decor, adding a new element of class to liven up the room. The mirror situated above makes the overall look even more dynamic.
The autumn season witnesses the brilliance of color, along with the cooler nights that come with it. Instead of a pumpkin patch outside, set one up inside. Surround the fireplace with the display of changing leaf colors and you have yourself a decorative masterpiece.
8. Menino Jesus
Decorating around the fireplace with a festive spirit doesn’t have to revolve around Santa Claus and his reindeer. The original concept behind Christmas did revolve around a certain Saint Nicholas dropping money in the stockings of three young ladies that were in a desperate situation.
This act of kindness was meant to go unnoticed but their father caught him in the act as this man saved his daughters. When asked why he did it, Nicholas said it was due to the generosity of Jesus Christ that he was inspired to do what he did.
The Menino Jesus is spotted in the wreath while the rest of this elaborately decorated fireplace glorified the spirit of Christmas in a manner that sees the genius of creativity at its best.

Shabby and chic, the standout creativity between the swans and the shutters make the fireplace look even more scenic, not to mention the genius of turning it into a woodburning stove to really set off a classic look for the ages.
Turning the fireplace into a home for the woodburning stove is a great way to bridge the best of both worlds into a unique display of ingenuity.
