There are two ways to display a fireplace mantle… formal and casual. It’s important to think about the overall “feel and mood” you wish to create before you start decorating. For a formal style always stick to symmetry and simplicity and make sure the mantle is balanced with textures and colours. In contrast, a casual mantle is all about placement and showcasing little collections in organic arrangements. I hope the short step by step video, at the bottom of this post, inspires you and helps you create a mantle perfect for your home.
