So, let’s get started!
Go with your color scheme
You don’t have to decorate with the usual red and green Christmas color scheme if it doesn’t match the style of your home. Feel free to bring the decorations that are within your specific colors.
Turquoise is not a typical Christmas color. But, you can see that it fits this home perfectly. The neutral colors with turquoise accents from the room continue to the mantel. This looks so tastefully decorated and cohesive.
Play with texture
Mixing different textures is the designers’ favorite trick. And you have lots of textures to pick from. Start with a nice and dense garland over the mantel. Can you notice the difference in textures here? I love how the garland creates contrast with the stone fireplace.
Anchor the decor
To anchor the mantel, you need to decorate the wall above it. This charming wooden clock shows you how to do it properly. Some prefer to add a large mirror or framed art. It doesn’t matter what you pick, the space around the mantel will look anchored.
Symmetry is a secret trick that makes things visually appealing. When you anchor the space, you can continue to build around it. Professional designers would advise you to add symmetry, right after anchoring. There is no easier way to do this than to add two of the same or similar objects on both sides of the mantel. You can see how the wooden decorations make the decor look symmetrical.
If you don’t have two same items or you want to spice things up, al you have to do is use objects with the same height. This will do the trick as well.
