Decorate Your Mantel

In my new home I have a large fireplace and mantel that I just love, but that’s where the TV is, too. I like that the TV and fireplace can both be the centerpiece of the room, but it’s hard to decorate a mantel around a TV. So, I’ve been checking around the web for some decorating options for this area.

Garlands are a beautiful addition to a mantel and can be changed out for different holidays. I also love the use of the sconces on either side of the TV.

I like the idea of focusing on decorating the hearth rather than cluttering up the mantel.

I think balance is key to decorating and this includes the mantel and fireplace, especially when there’s a TV.

Decorate the area outside of the fireplace instead.

Covering the TV with barn doors is an awesome idea.

Of course, keeping things simple is a good option.
