What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Minimalist. A spray of green and gold fall leaves and a couple of candles is all that’s needed to make this cozy fireplace in North Carolina feel dressed for the season. To set up your mantel so it’s easy to update for a year-round display, keep it simple and uncluttered, and invest in one standout vase. Over the year, you can fill the vessel with fresh seasonal elements like cut branches in fall, evergreen conifer boughs in winter, delicate spring blooms and colorful summer flowers.
4. This fireplace wall strategy can block an unsightly view, while the open sides of the North Carolina porch maintain the cross breezes. The mix of white brick, slate floor, and dark rafters and trim create crisp contrast. With a mounted TV on the wall, it’s a great place to watch football during the fall.
If you position the TV off to the side of the fireplace instead, it can usually sit a little lower, so you won’t get a crick in your neck from looking up. If you don’t have the wall width available, consider using another wall entirely.See more on TV and fireplace combos
