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.

You can never go wrong with plants. They make any space feel alive and vibrant. Display small plants on the mantel itself and bigger plants on the floor, underneath.

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

What are some ways that you would decorate your mantel?
