Indoor Summer Fireplace

The weather is warm so we won’t be using our fireplace for several months.

I dressed up this area with twigs, battery operated twig lights and greenery around the large candle trio.
faux lavendar
lanterns and a rustic homemade wooden box filled with pine cones
battery operated twig lights look like twinkling stars on a clear summer night
an over sized vintage window covers the “black hole”
a trio of three wick candles gives the essence of a real fire burning – without the heat
 summer ambiance indoors when it is too hot outside – created with natural and artificial elements – air conditioning is a wonderful thing, especially when I can sit by this pretty view and read a book and stay nice and cool – cozy -even!

(sounds like a nice life – I am actually too busy for that – just sounds good)

So pretty, Holly.


I would rather sit in front of this then the TV most nights… so beautiful! The twig lights add so much and as always you take it over the top to perfect! Only wish I had a fireplace…doesn't mean I can't make a faux one…right????Hugs,Pendra


I love how candlelight looks any time of year, but love it as a substitute for a roaring fire in the summer time! Great idea!

Those twinkle lights add so much! You know I won't be using my fireplace this weekend. Saturday's forecast is 112. Yep, you read that right. So I'm totally into your no heat fireplace. xoxo jules

This is so pretty Holly! I love that you put a big window in front …. I may try that! I tend to decorate 'inside' my fireplace for summer but I like your idea for a change! Thanks!!~~Angela

What a great idea with the lighted twigs. Now I'm sad mine are packed away with the Christmas stuff.


Perfect…hope you find time to enjoy it!! What happened to \”lazy summer\” days? Not so much 🙂
