Autumn is one of our favorite times of year. And decorating is a big part of that. Who wouldn't want to bring those beautiful fall hues into their home? An easy way to do just that is to give your fireplace mantel a quick seasonal makeover. Take a peek at these nine eye-catching displays and get inspired to infuse some autumnal flavor into your space. All that's left to do is kick back and relax with a cup of hot spiked ... ahem, we mean spiced apple cider.
1. Take advantage of every inch.
Blogger Jessica from I Dream of Homemaking utilizes the mantle and base of her fireplace to incorporate autumnal accents. We love the mix of pumpkins, signage, and fall foliage. It's simple yet seasonal.
2. Blend in lots of autumnal florals.
3. Go bright and colorful.
4. Build layers.
Start with a round mirror. Then layer mini pumpkins, greenery, and wooden lanterns à la Michelle Janeen. The result is sophisticated with loads of depth and dimension.
5. Go rustic for the win.
Take a cue from blogger Nelly Joyce and turn your modern farmhouse mantel into a fall fantasy. All you need to recreate this gorgeous display is a round mirror, a little greenery, some white mini pumpkins, and a handful of old weathered books for extra rustic flair. This minimal setup could work all year long!
6. Make it modern.
Fans of a more modern aesthetic will fall head over heels for this mantlescape from Camille Styles. A crisp white palette and minimal yet cozy accessories keeps this gathering space feeling warm and inviting.
