2020 was one of the coldest winters in Australia for a very long time. 40 years in fact, and as everyone huddled around the fireplace at night time in their favourite pyjamas and sipping hot cocoa, at Sydney Heaters and Pizza Ovens, we were run off our feet supplying Australia with the means to keep warm.

Just as important as the fireplace is the fireplace décor. It helps transform your lounge room from an icy cold tundra to a cosy and warm place to congregate with friends and family.

In this post we take a look back at our favourite fireplace décor of Winter 2020.


This outdoor pit fire, sporting simple, functional, and cosy surrounds, is a classic example of an outdoor fireplace and has all the makings of a fine place to keep warm. The natural stones and greenery give it a rustic charm, while the sofa and the wood fired heater add modern flair.


This old chestnut. This is the classic wood fire mantlepiece you often see in suburban homes all across the country. The indoor plants are a lovely touch and the scene wouldn’t be complete without the bookshelf and the stereo. This may be an oldie, but it’s just so cosy and charming.

This scene is more of a minimalist approach and uses an inbuilt gas heater as the centrepiece of the room. It’s a harmonious blend of modern furniture with traditional flooring and fireplace.


This is a bit luxurious and opulent and wow, the view is amazing. This is a very fine example of a living room and a very expensive one no doubt. The landscape electric heater provides more than enough warmth and visual stimulation for this area.


This is some good old fashioned cosy winter fireplace décor, using the winter palette to create a stylish yet homely feel – a nice place for the family to congregate. The exposed brick and wooden beam only add to its rustic charm.


We love this décor. It’s so simple and so minimalist and allows the fire to be the star. It’s a case of industrial loft meets forest cabin meets modern apartment. It has that loft style rough brick wall, polished wooden floors, and the modern furniture, to have these three elements combine harmoniously.


This list wouldn’t be complete without this classic natural stone mantle. The owner has really gone out of their way to make it as cosy and colour coordinated as possible. Notice all the throw pillows strategically placed and colour coordinated with the natural stone and the vases are a nice little touch that complete the whole scene.

Although the winter of 2020 may have been cold and unbearable outside, it was a great excuse to crank the fire in living room, gather some friends and enjoy some good food, good company and good vino. The fireplace décor of 2020 was a classically minimalist approach with rustic mantles and modern furniture and a great melding of design styles and eras.
