With the entertaining season in full swing, I keep finding myself making a mad dash around the house, scooping up stray chairs from their regular surroundings to stand in as extra dining room seating for guests. What I could use is more accommodating furniture, like the versatile banquette. On a regular day it can seat one or two, but can just as easily hold many more when necessary—just try doing the same with a dining chair. Here are some ideas. . .

Creative Ways to Decorate a Non-Working Fireplace

Christmas is approaching and many fireplaces in many homes are non-functioning or simply never used so here is some creative ways to decorate. There’s something warm and welcoming about a fireplace. There’s something completely romantic about fireplaces. Your fireplace should never have to look empty, stark or lonely. We’re offering you a few ideas to help you fill your hearth.

Candle display

Beautiful and clever placement of pillar candles. Whether you prefer flames or flame-less this is a perfect solution for those who want to create the effect of warmth and fire without the hassle and mess. The arrangement is warm, inviting and romantic

Put a log in the fireplace

There’s something warm and inviting, festive and fun about this log-filled fireplace. Without even being lit, the wood evokes a feeling of warmth and a homeyness. The logs, of all shapes and sizes add a texture and pattern all their own.

Create a book lover’s nook

The books aren’t seemingly tossed in haphazardly, but they have been cleverly arranged both vertically and horizontally to develop a fun pattern. This adds a nice design element to the room while using what the owners already have.

Create a personal gallery

Here’s a clever way to display some of your favorite pieces of artwork  instead of on the walls or over the mantel. The framed pieces, grouped together and placed on the floor, adds not only a sense of creativity and freshness to your space but will surely be the focal point of your room and garner some great conversation. Art becomes even more fabulous when it’s not hung, predictably, on walls.
