These wonderful fireplace decorating ideas can really enhance the look of your fireplace, even the overall house. First idea, you can use mirrors. You can either have one huge antique mirror fitted right above the fireplace or you can have many small mirrors arranged in a seemingly random manner above it. On the opposite wall, you can place another mirror so that the brilliant flames get reflected in it. Another way to decorate your fireplace is by using fresh and fragrant flowers.
