Thank you to Wayfair for sponsoring this post so I could fill you in on our cool fireplace refresh! All product/brand opinions are 100% my own.
Our fireplace is a big deal in our home! We don’t have a foyer or grand entryway, so the fireplace serves as a focal point. While I am not much for elaborate decor, I like to keep the mantle fresh and seasonal. It’s pretty to look at while helping maintain celebratory anticipation of whatever holiday is upon us. Win!
So when Wayfair asked me to partner with them for a fall fireplace refresh, I was tickled. I love changing up some of my go-to decor items, but my major crush this season was tackling our tremendous fireside book piles (read: the disorganization is threatening to overtake our living room!).
It’s pretty clear our family is obsessed with books, and I have shared before about our passionate love of Berenstain Bears. However, I have never actually shown you our EXTENSIVE collection of Berenstain Bears books. What started as a cute pile on the RIGHT side of our fireplace has morphed into…
Enter that I’m holiday-obsessed, and we find ourselves with a not-so tidy sum of books for every single holiday. These books I slide over to the LEFT side of our fireplace, but…they look chaotic.
So I’m left with an “around the fireplace area” completely over-run with Berenstain Bears and holiday books, and…it’s a mess!
With all of this in mind, my goal was set…
Fall Fireplace Refresh
For my fall fireplace refresh, I wanted to add a few new fall fireplace decor items and CLEAN UP the mess of books on both sides of my fireplace.
To tackle the books, I researched storage baskets/crates/totes to suffice our sizable stash. I was super-tickled when I found this three-basket set.
This set offered baskets to fit both our vast Berenstain Bears collection AND our smaller seasonal book collection, plus there was an extra basket to spare for whatever storage needs come our way (I have found in MANY such needs pop up with kids around!).
Our storage needs sorted, I took to sprucing up our fall fireplace with new decor items that integrated well with our space and added dimension. After extensively searching Wayfair’s huge selection, I settled on these two items:
Our final fall fireplace result? Perfect for us 🙂 Very seasonally attractive, plus the two book baskets on either side well suit our reading needs…while being easy to pick up and move when we decide to light up the fireplace.
Wayfair has so many other perfect-for-your-home fall décor and fireplace décor items–take a minute to browse their selection and find some accents to bring the seasonal spirit to your space!
