Layered Mantle Decor for a Fireplace You’ll Love Every Time!



If you have a fireplace in your living or family room you are in luck! Fireplaces are not only functional but they make a space fell warm and cozy and are a great focal point for the room. The mantle area should be decorated as such, showing off to all eyes that enter the room.  One way to make it great is to do a layered look with accessories, and here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Use a main anchor piece, such as a mirror or artwork and layer smaller pieces in front of it.

Here the white picture frames tie into the trim color and keep the mirror with it’s dark frame as the main piece, then the dark color is repeated on the small frame in the front and the base of the sculptural accessory. The floral elements soften all the other hard surfaces.

Nowadays, fireplace ideas come in a vent free gas or propane and electric fireplace. Modern fireplaces are built no more just with stone and brick. Now they are being built by marble and even glass. #fireplaceideas #fireplacediy #fireplacestone #fireplacebrick #fireplacecoastal #fireplacewithtv #fireplacecorner #fireplacerustic #fireplacefarmhouse #fireplaceworking #fireplacemodern #fireplacelivingroom #fireplaceelectric #fireplaceGas


On this next mantle there are not only layers of mirror and pictures, but also layers with books and a mix of different sizes of vases. The greenery adds softness.


Layered pictures and accessories with repeating colors make this one a good focal point. A mix of finishes with glass, rope, wood, metal and canvas makes it interesting.

Round out a mantel with a gathering of secondhand mirrors and frames. Golden paint freed the largest mirror in this group -- a $60 flea market find -- from a dark finish, bringing out the piece’s architectural charm. Tuck black-and-white photos into the edges of mirror frames for a casual look. #Fleamarketdecorating
