When the sun starts to shine and the days become longer, our fireplace can look a little tired and empty. No longer needed to keep us cosy on long and cold winter nights, what was once the centre of our rooms can now seem a little redundant.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Dressing your oak fireplace beam for the spring can really help to bring your fireplace to life and transform it back into the centrepiece it should be for the season ahead.
After all, an oak mantel isn’t just for Christmas…
When it comes to interior decor trends for 2018, its all about adding a bit of colour to your home.
Adding a splash of colour to your fireplace by purchasing a few pastel-coloured candles, cannot only brighten up your oak fireplace beam during the day but also give you the feeling of warmth and cosiness that comes from having a few flickering flames, on those cooler spring evenings.
Tall, thin candles in equally elegant holders, work well on an oak mantel. Add a few fatter, different sized pastel-coloured church candles to your hearth, to create a stunning display.
If you have a wood burning stove, you could also try putting some battery-powered fairy lights inside it, after you have cleaned it out for the summer.
There’s nothing that says spring quite like a lovely string of bunting.
Hang it on your oak fireplace beam to create a garden-party atmosphere in your front room.
If you are feeling especially crafty, you could even make your own.
Pick pastel shades to go with your candles or if you want to go all out, opt for this season’s must-have colour: emerald green.
Adding flowers to your oak mantel or even inside your wood burning stove (obviously do not light it!) is a great way to bring the outdoors in and make you feel like spring has truly arrived in your home.
For those who don’t want the stress of looking after real flowers, fake ones look just as good and can be re-used year after year.
You can even buy fake flowers that are already in pots or alternatively, pick your own and make a display to suit your space.
An oak mantel not only makes a great feature in your room, it’s also the ideal place to create a seasonal display.
