How to Style a Mantel
This was my simple mantel last fall.
I did my spring mantel recently, but until I finish painting around it, I can’t really take a photo of it. It is all torn apart because of the painting going on in the room! It will look much better with the new paint behind it, anyway.
I love changing up my new mantel. I haven’t had a real mantel for quite awhile, so being in this house it is a fun treat to finally be able to update one for the seasons!
But it is sometimes hard to find enough photos for inspiration on how to style a mantel. There are so many options, from simple to complex! I was really inspired by Layla at The Lettered Cottage’s comprehensive post (and series!) on mantels. Not only does she herself have a ridiculously beautiful mantel, but she has some great examples from her own mantel work for clients too. Check it out if you are wanting to create a new mantel-scape (is that a word?)!
