Ideas to decorate your mantel

 

One of the most popular items to hang above the mantel are mirrors. But today I won’t show you mantels with mirrors, I wanted to show you some other great ideas to fix up your mantel.

A fireplace creates an instant focal point in a room and that is why it is important to choose the right decorative items.

 

A modern painting as here!

Notice the colours of the painting that match the stained wooden cabinets, the leather chairs and coffee table. I love the look of this living room!

Add personality and style by adding a few more pieces as Michael S Smith has done here. And instead of hanging a mirror above the mantel, he places the mirror next to the chimney.

I just love the way Vicky Archer has decorated her mantel! All these candlelights give her living room an enchanting atmosphere.
