Fireplace mantels are a great place to show off your style. Fireplaces are often the focal point in a space so their mantles are wonderful spots to showcase collectibles or decorative accent pieces.
When decorating a fireplace mantle, we like to draw from the colors and style present in the room. Compliment the decor by choosing items in similar styles. For example, in a traditional space using a classic wood clock and elegant scrolled metal candle holders, staying away from sleek modern lines. An accent color can be pulled from the room and used in the candles placed in the candle holders. Candle holders are a favorite of ours to place on mantles. There are so many styles and sizes to choose from, they are easy to bring into any decor.
Overall, fireplace mantles are fantastic places to show off your favorite things. They are also convenient places to place items to tie the look of your room together. For more decorating ideas visit www.cheapchicdecor.com.
