mantels + fireplaces

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

A friend of mine recently told me that she was having a hard time styling her mantel, so I thought I'd do a post with a few tips and styling ideas for that shelf space above your fireplace.

A mirror above the fireplace is a great focal point for your area and becomes a way to open up the room.

You can easily style your mantel with an eclectic mix of accessories. The height of these various objects work together to create a grouping that is pleasing to the eye, while the peacock wreath and framed initial add interest on the wall.

 An arrangement of a large statement piece of art and a few small accessories looks great and is easy to put together.

 Books are an awesome way to accessorize in any area of the house, and this arrangement helps to create a unique mantel.

The mirrored tile here obviously makes a huge statement, but I think the greenery and pieces around the floor of the fireplace really balance it all out.

I hope this was helpful and inspires you to think about different ways to style your mantelpiece!

Cheers,
Ellie
