With the winter chill in full swing, who wouldn’t like to snuggle up to a fire place on a winters night? Fireplaces are the cosiest centrepiece of any home and a great addition and investment. However, after a lot of usage they might seem a little tired or needing a little love. We have a few tips and tricks to how to bring your fireplace back to life.


White Wash –

A lick of paint is always a winner.  Weather your fireplace is an old 80s brick, or a newer contemporary plated floating fireplace, a simple lick of white paint can clean it up beautifully.


Master the Mantle –

You can buy ready-made mantles that fit most fireplaces these days.  Early Settler have a gorgeous selection, but always locally in Brisbane, Restoration Station have a beautiful customisable range.


Frame your Masterpiece –

Framing your fireplace with either chests of drawers or cabinetry can really finish the space.  It gives you the space to add a gorgeous lamp or personalise the space with trinkets, meaningful pieces and photos.


Hang it up – So what do you hang over your mantle?  Its going to be a statement.  So a beautiful mirror, a stunning photograph or an amazing artwork would be perfect.  Once you have created your focal point above, you can group some beautiful pieces on the mantle. Don’t forget to add a little life. Some gorgeous greenery or a posy of flowers.
