Do you ever look at your mantle and wish it was more than a catchall or dust bunny trap? Well then check out these tips for decorating the perfect mantle that we found for you. It’s all in the triangle!

1. “Take one large piece and center it on the mantel. Go for something reflective here like a large mirror.”

2. “Layer in artwork. Layer art and photos in front of the mirror.”

3. “On the left – Add something with movement. We love tall candle-holders – they add height and warmth. At this point, a triangle shape should start to form. Remember to stand back every so often, squint and adjust accordingly.”

4. “On the right – Incorporate an element with visual weight to the right side like a glass cylindrical vase filled with tall wispy branches or a chinoisery vase with simple white flowers.”

5. Finishing touch – “Finish off the vignette with accessories that reflect your personality like souvenirs or items from a collection.”


Happy decorating!
