A question I’m often asked as an interior designer is how to decorate a fireplace mantle. As the focal point of the living room, we orient our furniture around the fireplace even when it’s hot outside. There are many ways to decorate it depending on your style and personality.
I tend to prefer an asymmetrical balance. I also like to display a collection or gather items in a similar colorway. The best part is the opportunity to change it up seasonally or even monthly. If you don’t have a mantle any shelf will do!
