While we adore those royal looking fireplaces, that kind of decor could cost you a handsome amount of money. For revamping your fireplace without breaking the bank, we have a very simple yet appealing idea. Just collect those golden shade leaves from your garden and place it all around the fireplace. You can also make use of artificial leaves in the orange and golden shades. In addition to that, get some mums and tiny potted plants for enjoying a beautiful fall patio retreat.
