18 Gorgeous Mantels to Inspire Your Holiday Decor

The holiday countdown has begun: Trees are trimmed, (some) gifts are wrapped and doors are decked with DIY wreaths. Now it’s time to show that hearth a little love, since it has kept you cozy on all those cold nights with Netflix. Put away that Elf on a Shelf, ’cause we’ve got more than enough ideas to keep your holiday decor decadent and fresh with these 18 holiday mantels.

1. Blue, Gold + Silver: There’s nothing wrong with feeling a little blue. Throw a few blue ribbons here and some blue ornaments there and voila. Mixed metallics and blue decor never made a mantel look so good. (via At the Picket Fence)

2. Color Play: Offset an all-white room with a stunning display of colors. It’s a white winter wonderland makeover, and the brighter the decorations, the better. (via Pencil Shavings Studio)

3. Gold Accents: More into an effortless chic look? Something as simple as a glittery gold garland or two can do wonders for a seemingly plain mantel. It’s all in the details. (via The Design Confidential)

4. Rustic Elegance: Cozy up your mantel with earthy tones and rustic staples like burlap, wood and greenery. Doesn’t it just make you want to bundle up by the fire? (via DIY Network)

5. Ornaments: Double up on the ornaments this year and decorate both your tree and an evergreen garland to drape over your mantel. (via Style Your Senses)

6. White Out: Keep everything wintry white, with a few metallic accents here and there for an easy look that’s elegant and pristine. (via Centsational Girl)

7. Light-Up Marquee: Don’t let the tree have all the fun. Add this marquee to your mantel and you’ll have everything feeling merry + bright with a glittery glow in no time. (via A Beautiful Mess)

8. Frame It: Make a literal statement and frame it by upcycling an old frame, using white gold metallic paint against a faux chalkboard background. (via Blooming Homestead)

9. Silver + Gold: If you’re all about the glam life, go big with mixed metallics. (via Bliss at Home)

10. Advent: Count down the days while keeping your mantel in style. And no, white and gold never gets old. (via Stylizimo)

11. Gemstone Garland: Keep things relatively simple up top while stringing some colorful beads below. Your mantel will come across as an effortless kind of modern elegance. (via Centsational Girl)

12. Faux Fireplace: If you’ve got a faux fireplace, bring your mantel decorations on down to complete the whimsical holiday masterpiece. Use firewood as filler or get creative! (via Ana White)

13. Glitter Letters: Use spray paint, glitter and cardboard letters to spell out your favorite festive saying, et voila: instant mantel masterpiece. (via Centsational Girl)

14. Cozy Sign: Use a stencil to mimic this festive sign. Personalize your holiday message to up the cozy factor. (via The Lily Pad Cottage)

15. Canvas Art: Decorate your mantel with holiday-inspired art works. Stick to silver and gold paint like this artist, or try your own take on holiday colors. (via The Decor Fix)

16. Gilded Everything: Go gold or go home! Deck out your mantel and stockings with gold accents for the complete glamour experience. (via Tatertots & Jello)
