How to decorate your mantel

Here are my best tips for decorating your fireplace mantel to create the perfect focal point!

When we bought our house last year  I was psyched that we had so many fireplaces… 6 to be exact! Fireplaces aren’t the most efficient ways to heat a house, but they sure are beautiful to look at. A room always needs a focal point and what better one then a decorated fireplace mantel!

Above you can see that because of the width of the mantel and the ceiling clearance I decided to go with layered picture frames to highlight the length of this beautiful mantel. I also used the green faux garland (target) to add in a nice neutral. Lastly, my sconces and my candlesticks add to frame in the mantel.

WIth this mantel, I went with one main focal point (the mirror, also target). Then I used the fall garland to fill in the mantel, and lastly, the candlesticks to frame it in. Very basic, but a beautiful mantel none the less. We’re also working on removing the plaster that’s covering this brick on the inside of the fireplace.
