So, your apartment has a decorative fireplace. But what good is it when the cold weather comes around and you can't build a fire? Well, the fireplace can still keep things looking warm and cozy during the fall and winter seasons...
• 1 Use it as a cornucopia of seasonal decor, as with these Halloween pumpkins from Good Housekeeping
• 2 Fill it with firewood, which is readily available this time of year and hearkens back to the fireplace's original function. Image: Country Homes & Interiors via House to Home
• 3 Make it glow with a strand of twinkle lights or candles, as in this example from Sunset.
