Candles are actually the traditional decorations for fireplace mantels. Back then, they didn't have electric lights and had to use candles for light in the evening. It was the perfect place to situate candles, which can be taken to the room at bedtime.
The fireplace mantel, if it's wide enough, would be the perfect place to put some plants or fresh flowers. These fresh elements can really bring life to a room, not to mention the added benefits of adding live plants in your living room. Make sure you pick plants that can thrive well inside or with little sunlight, especially if your fireplace doesn't get enough sunlight. This idea is best if you hardly use your fireplace, as the heat may wilt or kill your plants. If you use it seasonally, make sure you transfer your plants before you start lighting your fires.
