There’s something about the four seasons that is wonderful. But a Colorado winter can be long and cold, and when that warm spring breeze starts to blow, it is a relief. Fix up your hearth and mantel to bring the feeling of spring inside.
Once you get your fireplace all cleaned out after a long winter, it’s time to turn it into a springtime showpiece. You can do this by bringing some of those early spring flowers or plant-life into the home. First, your mantel and the area above it. Look for something to hang above the mantel; a picture that highlights the colors of springtime in Colorado would be a nice touch, or, if you prefer, a picture that reflects some of the beauty of nature that only Colorado holds. If you’re not into paintings, a mirror can add another level of depth to the room. Finding a mirror with a frame that matches your room’s decor will make a beautiful addition to the room. After you’ve found the perfect piece for the wall, look to the mantel.
Spring Decoration Ideas
You can add color to the room by filling a vase with some of the flowers of springtime in Colorado and setting it on the mantel. Some great choices for a tall vase would be tulips or daffodils. Snapdragons or pansies can fill a lower vase and add a cheery touch to any room. If you don’t feel like changing out fresh flowers, go to your local hobby store and buy some silk flowers instead. If you’re not a flower person, candles can make a beautiful decorative statement, especially when lit in front of a mirror. Pictures of family members are a conversation piece as well.
As a final touch, since you won’t be using your hearth for a while, find something to put in front to fill that empty space. You can carry the plant theme by finding a large basket and filling it with more silk flowers! Tulips are a great option, but really, anything that makes you feel happy is a great option. Or if you’d rather, add a fireplace candle holder and some chunky candles. As well as being decorative, this can keep odors down during the summer months.
