The fireplace and mantel is a best spot for Christmas trees, decorations and stockings. It will set the mood for the room and can serve as a nice background for you and your family if you want to take a family portrait. A tastefully designed mantel is an important design aspect when it comes to holiday decor. It’s often the first thing the eye is drawn to when entering a room. Much like the rest of our homes, the way we decorate our mantels for the holidays is a direct reflection of our style.
One important element of mantel decorating is how you balance your objects in the space. Symmetry brings your eye across the mantel, which is better for a more streamlined, simple approach. For homes with a more classic and conservative aesthetic, this is a popular look. If you prefer a more modern style, vary the height of your accessories to achieve the look that best fits your personality.
