Below are some ideas for styling your fireplace mantel for any season.
When decorating your mantel, balance doesn’t necessarily mean symmetry. While symmetrical designs are visually appealing, an asymmetrical layout can be beautiful if done correctly. Place a tall object on one end, then balance it with a cluster of smaller items on the other.
Stick to a Theme
Pick a theme to simplify your decorating process. Whether based on a color, a season, or a style, having a guiding theme ensures that all elements come together. For example, use the Wooden Christmas Mantel Village as a centerpiece, then surround it with other rustic elements for a cohesive look.
Layer Your Décor
Put some items partially in front of others to create depth. For instance, place the French Market Floral Foliage in the foreground with the Lit Farmhouse Wooden Village slightly behind for more dimension.
Mind the Space
While showcasing all your favorite pieces is tempting, leave space between items to allow each piece to stand out. This ensures the mantel doesn’t look cluttered and lets each decorative accent shine.
