When it comes to holiday decorating, the mantel is one of the most important spaces. Aside from the tree, your mantel is one of the key locations to add festivity. To get your space “Instagram shelfie” ready, try these three great tips.
Keep It Varied
One of the most important tips to creating a visually appealing mantelpiece it to mix and match your materials. Even the simplest decorations will look stunning when paired up in a unique way. Try materials that work well together to create a look of controlled contrast. Mixing the coarse look of burlap or twine with ceramic and metals can help create a look that is cohesive with sufficient interest.
Even when using simple decorations in a limited color palette you can create a look with plenty of interest if you use a variety of layers. If you happen to have a large framed piece of art or mirror on your mantel, you can use that as your base and begin to add layers. Working with different sizes and shapes will create a stunning look. The trick to layering is to keep trying, your first composition may leave something to be desired, but it might just be that your placement is a little off!
Bring In Simple Greens
There are plenty of ways to bring a touch of green to your mantel. From evergreen garlands to small firs, a bit of green is the best way to add an elegant, festive touch. For a look, you can enjoy all season long, add small living plants like poinsettias and rosemary in small pots. Alternatively, a draping of faux fur and eucalyptus will make for a beautiful garland you can reuse year after year.
