A fireplace is always the focal point of whatever room it’s in but never more so than during the holiday season. The cozy warmth and soft light make it ideal for gathering around to sing carols, read old stories, or enjoy the company of dear family and friends. If you want to amp up the holiday spirit around your fireplace this year, follow a few of the tips below and celebrate the season in style.
Whatever color scheme you set up in your living room’s year-round decorations, make sure it’s easily adaptable for the holiday season. Forest greens and soft whites make a festive backdrop for Christmas colors, especially if you have some deep red ornaments to put up. The natural brick color of your fireplace and the light of the fire itself will complement this color scheme superbly.
