Styling Your Fireplace Mantel
A quick video from Emily Henderson, https://stylebyemilyhenderson.com as she explores 3 options to style your mantel.
Over the years of styling fireplace mantels, my mantra is to use a few good pieces paying close attention to the scale & color of each piece. Because a mantel is pretty large, it’s natural to just keep adding stuff to fill it up, so be careful not to overdo it. Lastly, editing is the key to a perfectly styled mantel. ~ Nancy
However, a caveat to this is a well thought out collection that places importance on shape & color. So if this is more of your style, take a look at the video below from ArchitecturalDigest.com.
Lastly, whatever your design style is styling the fireplace mantel is an important design element of your room. So give yourself plenty of time to play around with the many options available to you. Start with what you have on hand at home. Bring all these possibilities to your room and begin by thoughtfully placing them on the fireplace.
Now you will begin to see what works and what doesn’t. For example, for a summer vibe you just want to keep it simple. Then go ahead and edit out the items that don’t fit into your vision. And so the design process has just begun! Equally important, you will see what you need to purchase to fill in; such as the correct size picture or mirror. Or a vase, flower pot or accent piece in a certain shape or color. Or you may decide to create a collection. The options are endless once you give it your full attention! ~ Nancy
