Follow these mantel decorating ideas as a guideline on how to create your new favorite space, but keep in mind the most important tip of all: Stay true to your personal style. Use pieces you love, designs you are comfortable with and an aesthetic that fits your home. You can’t go wrong!
For a more decorative option, try framing your TV. You’ll still want to add things to the mantel itself, but be sure they are small and don’t clutter the space or block the screen.
Founded in Montreal, Canada, Customaps is the result of an unusual collaboration between a Parisian mural specialist and a Marseilles-based cartographer. With their combined areas of expertise, Customaps creates unique posters, murals, and pre-stick wallpaper of maps and satellite images, each detail tailored by the buyer down to the zoom-level, style, and font. The possible customizations are almost as endless as the locations.
At the core of it all, a custom yellow sofa that was developed on site adds brightness and storage. The matching ottoman can be turned into a small coffee table. The white chimney with its powerful rustic character adds to the eclectic atmosphere. During the day, natural lighting floods the space through a traditional window that’s painted blue.
Your living room, regardless of size, should be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertaining. Here are some of our favorite ways to make it feel more spacious.
