Spring has sprung and soon it will be Summer!  Fire­place Man­tels are thought of often during the cold months, but sadly neglected during the warm ones.  Don’t neglect your mantel!  Take it on as an easy cre­ative chal­lenge.  Intro­duce pops of bright colors (greens, corals, oranges, blues, and for the uber daring…PINK!)  Use acces­sories, art­work, botan­ical prints, living walls — what­ever you chose, have it make a state­ment just as it would during the hol­iday season.

We LOVE  how the designer used bright paint to jazz up the logs in the fire­place in the below photo!  If looking for a larger pop of color try a garden stool like the one from Emis­sary in the col­lage above (may also be used for addi­tional seating).  Pull out bright col­ored books and stack them in bas­kets in or around the fire­place.  Don’t forget pil­lows for your sofas and chairs to tie in your Springy vibrant colors!

Lastly, if pos­sible, bring some lighting near your fire­place to pro­vide year-​​round ambiance.  Cheers!

The thing I love about fire­place man­tels the most is how ver­sa­tile they can be. Every season, every hol­iday they can be com­pletely trans­formed bringing a new fresh look to the space. Thank you for sharing your ideas for the spring season.
