I simply adore beautiful living rooms. Having a pretty place to enjoy company is something I wish to achieve in my future home. In the next few years, I plan on having my own place. Until that happens, though, I have Pinterest to give me a plethora of décor ideas.
On my one of many browsing sessions for “Home Décor,” I came across this gorgeous fireplace idea. Rather than having an actual working fireplace, candles are placed in the center of the fireplace frame. This gives the feel of a fireplace, without the commitment of one. I think it looks so elegant & chic!
My grandmother recently got a new fireplace; her old one broke, and it was just as much to get a replacement piece as a new fireplace. But rather than throw out the old fireplace, I asked her if I could keep it. It is brown, I guess a laminate-ish material. I plan on using it in my future place, but I want to paint it white. I also had the idea of adding mirrors on the inside of the fireplace. This adds reflection to make the flames from the candles look bigger & brighter.
So what do you think? Is this a pretty living room idea? Comment below!

That is so so pretty! ❤ It is absolute perfection!
I was thinking about doing this in my bedroom. Living in Hawaii there is no need for a real fireplace, so this is the perfect alternative. I’m thinking that this will be my next project 🙂 This particular one that you’ve shared is absolutely gorgeous.
I think it would look really pretty! 🙂
So pretty! I love the idea of painting it white. It will look so romantic.
love this! it would be perfect in the small sitting area I have on one end of my craft room. the fireplace has such a wonderful shabby chic look to it and I think the mirror inside would be perfect to show off the candles. I agree it will look very romantic no matter where you decide to put it.

We’re can i buy those candles… Anyone no thanks
Hi! I’m not sure where the actual candles are from. You should be able to find similar ones at department stores or discount stores like Marshall’s or HomeGoods. Thanks!
