Mantel Decor

VAV!/December 18, 2011

An exquisite showpiece in any room, a mantel can create a whole new look for your hearth, adding an element of style and elegance to your home. The mantel is usually the first thing noticed since it's at eye level.

When decorating, keep decor personal, appealing and in good taste. The mantel is also the perfect place for mirrors, portraits, objets d'art and treasured heirlooms. A touch of balance may be achieved by placing sculptures, candles, topiaries, or vases at both ends. The choices are limitless.

Decorate your fireplace for the seasons!

Adding pine cones, and greenery enhances the warmth and feel of winter holidays. For Christmas, why not 'hang the stockings with care' from the mantelpiece or add a Hanukkah menorah to celebrate your holiday?

Colorful fall garlands, intermingled with small pumpkins and gourds will make any room feel like autumn. Spring and summer seasons lend themselves to decorating using colorful floral additions to the mantelpiece.  Introducing festive lighting into the scheme of your mantle design brings a warm glow to the entire effect you're creating.

Stepping up your mantel decor can be done as often as you like and shows your own dash and flair for decorating. Enjoy!
