Every January brings cleaning, organizing and re-decorating. One of the areas that always get a fresh makeover in my home is the mantel. I take down the holiday decor and replace it with simple touches like plants, prints and candles. Usually mantels take center focus in a room. Which makes it a great area to spotlight some of your favorite goodies.
Above we see a pretty palette of white, wood and gold. It’s simple yet meaningful touches.
To make things really simple, add a large piece of art, a few vases or jars and call it good. The simple look is perfect for an extra modern space.
Like I said before, use your mantel to display things that mean a lot to you. If you have accessories that have been passed down to you, arrange them with more modern accessories. Also, use color to add a pop of personality to your mantel.

Sometimes it takes displaying things several different ways to figure out what’s best for your mantel.
