Live in an apartment or home with a gorgeous but totally non-functional fireplace? We recently received a note from a reader asking us for help on decorating her non-working fireplace and decided to round up 15 of our favorite decor options. Be sure to stay tuned later this week for our own hack on adding a little personality and light to your non-working fireplace.

1. Log Storage: Not sure what exactly one uses logs for without a fireplace, but we love the rustic look of both of these gorgeous fireplaces. (via Creative Index Blog + Abbey Goes Design Scouting)

2. Wine Storage: When in doubt, you can always turn to drink ;) (via Freshome)

3. Books + Magazines: We love the look of these eclectic collections of books, artwork, and magazines. (via Design*Sponge)

4. Packed Books: More books! If you’ve got a bunch of books you’ve already read, create a cool little matrix under your mantel. (via Apartment Therapy)

5. Vintage Suitcases: Need a reason to hit the flea market this weekend? (via Modern House Insight Freshome)

15. Faux Cardboard Logs: And last, its log, log, it’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood! Oh wait, it’s actually small, light, and made out of cardboard ;) (via Design*Sponge)
