Design Tips

Decorating a Mantel

The fireplace is the focal point of any room.  Remember three tips and decorating a mantel can be fun and easy.

  1. THE ANCHOR Choose an object and center it over the mantel.  This can be a mirror, TV or picture.
  2. THE WEIGHT Choose something to go on both sides that are similar in height.
  3. THE FILLER Add objects at varying heights under the object that we selected as our ANCHOR.

The trick is understanding the shapes and proportions that pulls this mantel together.
