If you’re looking for a green light to pretty up your fireplace for fall, this is it. Embrace your obsession with all things autumn and treat yourself to some fresh and festive fireplace decorations. Because let’s face it, nothing feels cozier on a crisp fall day than a crackling fire crowed by a seasonally appointed mantel overhead.

Our top tip for giving your fireplace mantel a fresh fall look is to lean into the textures, colors and patterns associated with the season. Add foraged foliage and dried blooms from your yard (for free!), then layer in autumnal hues and tartan accents to bring your display to life.
