Sacramento Street Smarts: Fireplace Mantel Styling

I dream of the day I own a home with a fireplace mantel. Ideally, I would love one in marble – preferably vintage. What I love about fireplace mantels is the ability to stage it in different ways throughout the year.

One key to a mantel that works is keeping continuity with the items you place on it. Load it up with your favorite items – just be sure they work together. I love the black and white collections of vases on this mantel and the pop of brass to add interest. Even the artwork joins into the theme. Don’t forget to also consider the accessories on the floor. I always like to use a pouf or chair next to a fireplace – the perfect spot for someone needing to warm their toes! It’s also nice to have a designated spot for your wood. I love the lines of this wood stand – great modern lines. And finally, don’t be afraid to change it up often!

Now that spring weather has arrive it’s time to enjoy both the mantel and the warmth of a fireplace on those cooler evenings.

    I’m sitting here drooling over your inspo pic. I love the simple color palette. Now I’m wondering how to get my hands on all those pieces.

    Speaking of pieces, those wood vases are AMAZING! seriously, they look so luxurious which is saying a lot for simple wood vases. I also love the pattern in the art and it looks like watercolor?
