Since the weather is chilly (and here to stay for a long while) I thought I’d pull together some great fireplace accessory pairings for those who have asked previously about just how to combine them to create an attractive hearth. For wood burning fireplaces, a screen is a MUST, as are tools and andirons. If you have a fireplace that is non-functioning don’t leave it bare- use andirons and a big stack of birch logs to create visual interest, or use a candelabra and screen for a romantic look. If you have a gas fireplace, look into getting custom doors made through a local fireplace shop. I just replaced mine when we did our sunroom renovation and they make a HUGE difference over the shiny brass monstrosity we had previously.
Here are some suggestions for pairings- from modern to traditional!
