Fireplace Mantels Show Off Your Style

A discussion of the well-dressed mantel was featured in Cambria USA  recently.

It is so timely as we all have just cleaned the Christmas decor off the mantel and are ready for new and fresh decor there.

So before you bring out your colored bottles and greenery, look at their composition tips.

  1. Vary the height, shape and proportion of your mantel decor.
  2. Create groupings on the mantel in odd numbers. It looks more natural.
  3. Feature one large decor item on the mantel. The rest of the accessories should be secondary.
  4. Add organic accents to help your mantel feel fresh and alive.
  5.  Showcase items that have special meaning to you and enjoy looking at them on display.

I am going shopping now for my mantel’s design.

E-mail me here . I love working on mantels!
