A tastefully designed mantel is one of the most important design aspects of a living space. It’s often the first thing the eye is drawn to when entering a room. Much like the rest of our homes, the way we decorate our mantels is a direct reflection of our style.Want to update your mantel, but not sure where to begin? We’ve come up with some tips and ideas to get you on your way to a stylish display.
Can’t decide on a piece of artwork? Try a mirror instead. You can find them in nearly any shape and size, whether you’d prefer a statement mirror or two matching ones that flank the mantel. A mirror also helps to brighten your living room by reflecting light from a window. You can either hang it or set it on the mantel and lean it against the wall.
Take a look around your living room. Is it time for a new coffee table? If so, here are our picks of the best ones out there. They’re fashion forward and practical — and your feet will thank you for bringing one home.
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.
Whether you’re a fine-art connoisseur or just like gazing at your favorite painting, an art display can be a wonderful addition atop your mantel. You can go for a trendy gallery wall, either hung above the mantel or sitting atop it. Alternatively, you can make a statement with a single large piece of art that reflects your tastes.
