Add Balance to Your Television
Showcase Large Art
Reflect Your Space
Mirrors can help make even small spaces feel larger and brighter, and the mantel is the perfect place for them. Add a large mirror or several smaller ones to the wall above the mantel. To make more of an impact, aim for a shape that will stand out from the fireplace. If the fireplace has strong lines and squared-off textures, a round mirror will help soften it, while a rectangular mirror looks best with a fireplace made of stone or other irregular shapes.
Fire is about as natural as it gets, so it makes sense to use more of nature’s goodness above it. You can’t go wrong with polished wood, nature art, and simple lines. If you use art, plan for a simple frame that is made of wood to help set off the natural look you’re going for. You may also wish to set up other items to help decorate the mantel: try pinecones, a vase with a pretty branch or a large seashell!
