Anatomy of Mantel Styling
One area of the home we love to address with decor is the mantel. This decorative shelf above the fireplace is open to endless style possibilities.
But how do you begin?
Let's review how to style your mantel so you can give it a go in your own home!
Start your decor scheme by choosing a central feature item. This will be a larger piece such as a mirror, artwork, or another framed piece.
Next, give your vignette a little height by adding a taller item such as a large vase, branches or faux sprigs, or candlesticks in decorative holders.
These secondary items add depth and visual interest to the set. Look to add accessories of varying heights, materials, and colors, and stagger them around your center element.
We've said it a million times and we'll say it again: you can't go wrong by adding a little greenery! Plants add a natural warmth and pop of color. So fill that vase right up with some sprigs!
Check out these other mantel variations that utilize some of the same items....more bang for your buck!
Have fun this holiday season (and all year round!) sprucing up your mantel!
