With crisp autumn air and chilly nights comes the need to crank up the heat, or, if you're lucky, throw a log onto the fire. Actually, consider yourself lucky even if you have a non-functioning fireplace — the cozy factor it can add to your home should not be underestimated. We rounded up five fall fireplace looks that are sure to inspire you to add a little fall to your living room. With plenty of pumpkins and some surprising fall accents, here's how to get your mantel ready for the season.  

Chic and minimal

This fall fireplace is simple, elegant and minimal and is perfect for anyone with an aversion to 'fall orange'. To achieve this look, source white pumpkins from your local market. Foliage is also key here, but opt for silver dollar eucalyptus instead of the traditional fall leaves. Style with accents of gold and plenty of candles for warmth and your mantel is ready for the autumn!

Beachy fall

This fall fireplace proves that you don't have to give up your coastal decor to embrace fall. Style your mantel with lanterns, leaves and DIY ombre pumpkins. Opt for lots of beiges and natural textures to add warmth to your blue and white decor. To make your fireplace super cozy and more fall-forward, add baskets of pillows and throws and you've got yourself a cozy, beachy autumnal vibe.
