Upgrading Your Mantel During The Holidays

Upgrading Your Mantel During The Holidays

It’s never too late to let holiday inspiration take over on your mantel! These ideas often use items that you likely already have at home. Is it time to try something new and upgrade your mantel this year?

Make It Nostalgic & Cozy | This mantel captures the true essence of the holidays, creating memories with your loved ones. You can use items that you already have, such as antique prints, vintage family photos and knick knacks, and greenery. A tip: find items within a singular color scheme. 

Use What You Have | Take advantage of your existing decor to fill your mantel with holiday cheer. Notice this example using books from the bookcase turned around to match the overall neutral hues on the fireplace. Existing topiaries can be dressed up for the holidays too!

Overstuff Your Stockings | Your stockings can be the star of the show! We like this mismatched grouping overflowing with Christmassy things to achieve the holiday look. 

Create A Window | Transform a vintage window into the focal point of your mantel display. This example adds vintage shutters too. Then you can add your favorite holiday wreath and coordinating decor items. 

Get Inspired By Nature | Use fresh evergreen boughs, wreaths, garlands, and combine them with citrus like lemons, mandarins, and oranges. Your home will have a beautiful natural look, and it will smell fantastic!

Complement Your Home | Most homes are not decorated in holiday reds and greens. You can use holiday decor that complements your decor, instead of fighting it. This example uses the home’s blue accents in the holiday mantel.
