As you’re decorating the house for the holiday season, what is your favorite part? Maybe it’s hanging your favorite ornaments on the tree or stringing lights high up on the roof. Whatever it is, it’s bound to get you in a festive mood! One place in the home that is perfect for Christmas decorations is the mantel above your fireplace. You can get extra creative by adding lights, natural elements such as wood and greenery or you can even display your favorite Christmas treasures. The options are endless and you might just find that once you have decorated your mantel, it inspires you to decorate the rest of the house the same.
The above mantel is a simple, yet classic way to show off your holiday spirit. Decorating with natural tree branches brings in a pop of color to your mantel and can be highlighted with the addition of white string lights. Add a few more layers to your mantel to give it a more complex look, similar to the red star and print shown above. Once the flicking flames of the Valor Windsor Arch turn on, it will be hard to resist curling up and getting extra warm!
If you’re looking for more of a bold Christmas look for your mantel, look no further! Using a mirror as the base for your mantel decoration will make the room feel larger and give you more of an expansive look. You can then add to the mirror with hanging ornaments, a holiday wreath or with large letters as shown above. The mercury candle holders and the silver accents give the mantel a completed look with the perfect color scheme in place for the holidays!
Last but certainly not least, if you want to keep your mantel and color scheme on the softer side try decorating with whites and light colors. The light shades will still feel festive with the addition of a statement piece in the center of the mantel. In this case the wooden reindeer and rustic window frame, make the perfect center for mantle decorations without overpowering the formal furniture and living room. Add your family’s stocking and or a handmade banner to add a personal Christmas touch!
