Dressing Up a Mantle

Fireplace mantles are an instant focal point in a room and deserve to be dressed up.

Here are a few different ways to show them off:

Isn't this one great?

Forget the art, use wallpaper as a back drop, and place a variety of stunning accessories.

Okay, so this room is just all together beautiful. I love how the designer used a large mirror to add life to the space and then hung interesting art on the sides. I think there is even a cute tiny lamp on the mantle.

Go big or go home. Sometimes just a large piece of art is all you need on a mantle. Okay, so there is also a vase in the photo, but you get the point :)

This arrangement is interesting. I would have never chosen to place two round mirrors next to each other over a mantle. I can't decide if I like it...

Gorgeous, masculine, and sophisticated. A beautiful symmetrical arrangement.

I like how this mantle is decorated with a theme - letters. Fun idea.

  1. I subscribe to the 1 large piece over the fireplace too! Too many small items are visually confusing. The eye can't rest. Great photos.
    Happy weekend!
