If you are looking for a quick room transformation, look no further than your fireplace mantel. Instead of leaving it empty, or using the same decorative pieces season after season, try a few easy decorating tips. By simply adding or rearranging decorative pieces, you can quickly update a room a few fresh mantel ideas.
Sarah from the home décor blog Thrifty Décor Chick recently embarked on a quick and simple mantel redo. In her post, she showed her readers a few stylish and ingenious ways to make mantels beautiful. She accessorized and paired various décor pieces together, creating a pleasant theme that instantly captures attention. She hung a mirror over her fireplace and added a few candlesticks and hardcover books. She even included a potted plant that breathed life into her space. With just a few change ups, she effortlessly turned her mantel into the star of her bedroom.
This is a great project. With very little effort or cost, Sarah was able to spruce up her mantel. The takeaway here is that redecorating doesn’t need to be elaborate. Unlike other redo tasks, all you need is some inspiration and a good eye for design. Choose furniture pieces that will perfectly complement the finish of your fireplace. Select accessories that will echo the aesthetic of your room.
There are a lot of inspiring ideas to change up the look of a mantel. Personally, I let the season be my guide. At the moment, my mantels are decorated with pumpkins, gourds, books, and warm-toned candles. But with the Christmas season nearing, I’m already thinking about how I want to decorate for the holidays.
An easy holiday mantel idea is to pick a color theme, then place candles, ornaments, and other color-coordinating decorative pieces on the mantel. If you want a kid-friendly mantel, decorate with stockings and candy canes. I also think going with a simple winter foliage such as berries and a bit of garland is a beautiful touch.
