Hey friends! Do you love spring as much as I do? Oh good! Around here, spring temps arrive early so I tend to pull out lighter and brighter decor by February.

The style ideas I’m sharing today will help you decorate your fireplace for spring and summer. The simple greenery, white accents, and black pillar candlesticks easily take your space from spring through summer in style.

As soon as we finished our fireplace mantel upgrade I transitioned our family room to warm weather decor. Let’s take a closer look at the elements I used.

Over the Fireplace

I like using a large mirror over our fireplace to bounce light around the room. I’ve had this mirror for ages! It’s hung in all three houses we’ve lived in. I like the contrast the black frame provides and the gold details dress it up just a touch. It gives my space that Ballard Designs look that I love.

AnnMarie and I found this gorgeous wreath at HomeGoods. AnnMarie took it home but it didn’t work in her house, so I was more than happy to buy it from her! I knew it would look great hanging on top of this mirror. I love the mix of greenery and its relaxed and airy look.

Spring Fireplace Decor On the Mantel

I tend to prefer a somewhat simple and traditional style on my fireplace mantel. Two groupings on either side of the mirror with some varied height are all it takes.

On the right-hand side, I started with the tall, white, pressed-tin vase. I found this in Hobby Lobby. I topped it with a large faux boxwood ball.

I like to use varying heights, so next, I added this black pedestal clock. I’ve had this for a while, but originally found it in Kirkland’s.

There’s a design principle that recommends using odd numbers of elements in your groupings, so I added a third item to this side of the mantel. I wanted it to be lower than the other two pieces. This green, moss-covered orb was the perfect accent.

On the other side of the mantel, I added two black, wooden pillar candle holders. I have a weakness for them. I love finding ones with different shapes and textures and mixing them! They’re topped with some plain white flameless candles. And for a third item to vary the height and to bring some green onto this side of the mantle, I used my Green Tuscan Vase. I got this from Southern Living At Home. Do you remember that company? It was my favorite for a while there! They’re out of business now, but you can still find those urns on eBay.

Spring Fireplace Decor Around the Hearth

We don’t have a raised hearth, but I’m so in love with how it looks since we re-did the marble surround! You would not believe how it looked before. You can check out how we painted it with chalk paint here.

I found these tall candle holders at Hobby Lobby in January. They were marked as Holiday items. I’m not sure why, but I was happy to take that 70% discount! All three of them were $30! TOTAL. Score!

The fireplace screen is another Southern Living at Home item. I still absolutely love it. If you’re interested in having one too, you can find the exact one I have on eBay.

This awesome basket is made from leather straps. My parents got it for us as a Christmas gift one year from a store near them called Terrain. I’ve filled it with a variety of throws. After all, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is: sometimes it’s nice to get cozy with a throw.

Here’s a full view of the entire fireplace, in all it’s springy and summery glory! I’ll probably end up changing a few things for summertime because I tend to get bored. But these colors would work for both seasons, don’t you think? Yup. Me too.

I’ve had several people on Instagram ask where I got my curtains. I found them about four years ago at Target and they don’t sell that pattern there anymore. I’ve linked some similar patterns for you below.

    • Hi Mary! Thank you so much! I actually purchased them from Target about 5 years ago. The ones I linked on Wayfair were the most similar that I’ve been able to find so far. Hope that helps, but sorry I can’t provide an exact link.
