Mantels are the perfect place to showcase artwork, mirrors, and accessories. The display on mine is always changing, because there are just so many variations that can work.
One of the quickest ways to establish a mantel as a focal point is to anchor it with a large mirror or single piece of art
. Then you can add in accessories, symmetrically
for a more traditional look and asymmetrically and layered
for a less formal and often more modern look.
Smaller art can work well in a gallery style or neat line
. A bold wallpaper
can replace artwork and mirrors, and live branches
will bring height and organic softness. Mantels are also a perfect spot for small collections
and seasonal decorations
, from stockings to pumpkins to foliage.
