Holiday Mantel Inspiration


When the Christmas season rolls around, there are a few key areas of your house where you can really make a design statement - the entry table, Christmas tree, and of course, the fireplace mantel.  Depending on what look you'd like to achieve, the design possibilities are endless. Here are some mantels that caught my eye.  Which style did you go for this year?


Rustic Mantel.  The burlap stockings and wooden sign really make this cozy holiday rustic look.  I also love the initials on the stockings.  


Whimsical Mantel.  Tell me this mantel doesn't make you smile?  It's just so fun and full of joy, you just can't help but think that this is a fun household!  Click on the link to see the home tour of these bloggers.  Every room is different and equally beautiful.


Blue Mantel.  Around the holidays, light blue makes us think of snowflakes, snow, (Queen Elsa anyone?) and is a common color used in decorating this time of year.  This mantel adds just enough blue with the ball ornaments on the garland, and the blue bow on the wreath adds just the right touch to pull the look together.


Modern Mantel.  White and gold take center stage in this design with lovely art pieces and ornaments.  Dark velvet stockings complete the look.


Stylish Mantel.  Gift boxes wrapped in gold and silver paper with modern patterns make for a stylish mantel vignette.  


Playful Mantel.  In a fun twist, wrapped gift boxes go playful in this cheerful and colorful design.   


Red and Green Mantel.  No two colors represent Christmas better than red and green.  Check out the link to find out how to make these beautiful carnation wreaths.

Tis the season to let your festive mantels shine!
