by | Dec 11, 2023 | Project Planning, Remodeling Ideas

The holiday season is upon us, and there’s no better time to transform your home into a festive and fun space! One key focal point that often takes center stage during this time of year is the mantle. Whether you prefer a classic and timeless look or something more contemporary, Corinthian Fine Homes has curated our top 4 holiday mantel ideas to inspire you and help you elevate your holiday decor.

Traditional Elegance

For those who appreciate the timeless charm of the holidays, a traditional mantel complete with evergreen garlands, red bows, and classic ornaments is the perfect choice. Consider incorporating candlesticks, nutcrackers, and metallic accents to add a touch of glam and a stunning wreath as the centerpiece ties the entire look together. If you are looking to incorporate more of your senses, consider throwing some scented pinecones into the mix for added texture and an outdoorsy aroma. The addition will create a welcoming environment for anyone that visits. 

Winter Wonderland Whimsy

Bring the magic of a winter wonderland into your home with a whimsical mantel display. Opt for a frosty color palette of whites, silvers, and icy blues and display snow-dusted branches or frosted garland, sparkling fairy lights, and delicate snowflakes on your mantel. To add depth, layer in figurines such as polar bears or snowmen and then light white or silver candles to complete the look. We love pairing white stockings with this mantle display for a continued monochrome style.

Rustic Charm

Embrace the cozy and inviting feel of rustic decor by decorating your mantel with natural elements. Start with a base of pinecones, twigs, and burlap and then incorporate wooden elements like reclaimed wood signs or lanterns for a warm touch. Creating your own garland from cranberries and popcorn is the perfect way to stylize your mantel without breaking the bank and a wooden sleigh with a small pine tree on the back is a nostalgic way to capture the holiday season! The rustic charm aesthetic is ideal for those who appreciate a more casual and down-to-earth holiday vibe.

Glamorous Gold

Elevate your holiday mantel with a touch of glamour! Deck out your mantel with gold accents, including gilded ornaments, metallic stockings, glitter stars, and shimmering ribbons. Incorporate mirrors to make a large statement and string gold lights to create a warm and sparking glow throughout the whole room. This luxurious theme is a great choice for those who want to add a touch of sophistication to their holiday decor.
