Fire Place and Mantel Decor by Firenzo

Fire Place and Mantel Decor by FirenzoBecause the fireplace always loves to be the center of attention, the way its mantel is decorated can have a dramatic impact on a room. The mantel and fireplace area is the perfect place for displaying everything from art to flowers to a personal collection of objects. This area can say a lot about a room’s intended style and the interests and experiences of the homeowners. Here are some ideas and pointers from our team at Firenzo.

Before you start, gather a bunch of items that you love, and that work for your style and colour scheme. It’s good to have options that you can try on for size, and then swap out easily for another item if they don't work.

Once you have your selection, fiddle around with the setup. The trick is to move things around until something looks like it’s sliding into place. Try different configurations like symmetrical, cascading, layering and asymmetrical.

For a summer-inspired look, try a collection of classic whites, combined with pops of light-green foliage and some natural elements to give textural contrast to the display. Or stick with a monochromatic palette, classical finishes and add beachy accents like a nautical knot ball to further illuminate a sense of the sea.

Get creative, have fun and turn your fireplace and mantel area into a wow-worthy focal point by following these simple tips from the team at Firenzo Woodfires.
