A few beautiful examples of fireplace mantel ideas:
You’ve trimmed the tree with ribbons and bows,
but you’ve left the mantel bare as snow.
Bring a sprig of green or lights of white
to adorn the fireplace all winter’s night.
Striking Silhouette Mantel
Lost wax bronze casted statues make a striking impression. Silver and red are a festive combination, especially when illuminated by candlelight. Pomegranates and rose hips hold a rich color that will stand out nicely against freshly cut greens and silver metal garland.
Sophisticated Twilight Mantel
When singing bowls aren’t singing, use them as decorations. The reflective surfaces will twinkle and gleam with the warmth around them.
Salt Pink Glow Mantel
The soft, warm glow of pink salt crystal adds an ambiance of much-needed warmth for the holiday season.
Blue and Gold Mantel
Waves of colored Phoenician glass swirl and encircle the light that burns brightly within them. For a more formal look, make the mantel pieces symmetrical, and add a star garland for peeks of gold throughout the length of the space.
Stocking-Ready Reindeer Mantel
If your mantelpiece is rustic wood and stone, match the sentiment with roughly wrought reindeer. Birch bark and berries complete the look of a woodland theme.
Moroccan Feast Mantel
Lemon yellow brightens up the space with a zesty vibrancy. Golden vases, candleholders, and lanterns bring a sense of joy and contentment. A comfortable abode indeed.
