How To Decorate and Accessorize A Mantel

Hello ABN readers! It’s Cecilia with Home with Keki and I am excited to be back with one of my how-to style posts and today we are tackling how to decorate and accessorize a mantel. The fireplace mantel does follow some of the same styling tips of a console table and you can read all about my console table styling tips here. I love the idea of over-styling a fireplace mantel and showcasing items in your home because you know it will get see. The fireplace is most likely the focal point of the room, as a result, the mantel is a great area to showcase art, collections, or photos.

How To Decorate and Accessorize A Mantel:

I am sure many of you have heard or read about the triangle method. Styling your mantel using the triangle method is simply a three-step process of creating height and balance on a tabletop or mantel. It is a layering process of creating height, weight, and fillers in the shape of a triangle. See my mantel below, I created two triangles. This makes it appealing to the eye.

3. Go Big

We know we have to create height, but don’t be scared to go high up. Nothing wrong with drawing the eye closer to the ceiling. You can do this with art, adding wall sconces, adding shiplap to frame it in.
