Embrace the seasons, and not just the ones at the end of the year. Add fresh flowers in the spring, tall grasses or bowls of slow-ripening fruit in the summer, or vases of cranberries as fall approaches to keep your mantel current. While mantel decorating creates an important focal point in a living room, it’s also one of the easiest things to change out — whether seasonally or with the trends. A good way to keep yourself from going into design despair is to collect several pieces to use together for a fresh look.
Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined.
One important element of mantel decorating is how you balance your objects in the space. Symmetry brings your eye across the mantel, which is better for a more streamlined, simple approach. For homes with a more classic and conservative aesthetic, this is a popular look. If you prefer a more modern style, vary the height of your accessories to achieve the look that best fits your personality.
