Tiled fireplace is another great look, apply the tiles to inch thick plywood carefully. Mount the plywood to creating a removable fireplace. Mirror can work wonders; a vintage style mirror may add the perfect charm. Buy a frame-less utility mirror which can cover the front of the opening. Candle bricks, pillar candles, candelabras or a combination of candles artfully arranged will provide different moods and can be changed seasonally or to set a special mood.
