Paint a collection of vintage urns and vases in several shades of the same color, such as peachy pinks. For paint colors that pop try Clark + Kensington summer trends like Orchard Street 10C-4, and set the urns and vases along the mantle against a freshly white painted fireplace for a collection that will really pop. Try Kudzu Antiques for unusual vase and urn finds.
Tantum also said to cover the fireplace opening with a Tree of Life fire screen door. The screen should rest on the exterior of the opening and sit on the hearth. You can find the screen at Plow and Hearth's online store. You can also take away the logs from the fireplace and fill the firebox interior with large boxwood balls and succulents. Check out The Heaney Company pop up shop in Sandy Springs for great quality faux boxwoods.
Reynolds suggested shiplap over an old brick fireplace giving a modern farmhouse vibe with a summery coastal feel. Finish with a fresh coat of white like Clark + Kensington Chalk for instant beachy style from Ace Hardware.
Switch out heavy holiday scented candles around the fireplace mantle using new scents such as fresh gardenia, grapefruit and beach inspired fragrances. You can also use a collection of candles inside the firebox for a fresh look with candles from a local Yankee Candle.
By alternating the décor of your fireplace each season, you will have a unique living space all year long.
