A bright white mantel displays a variety of green accessories, adding color to the space. An interesting ceramic vase houses white flowers while green glass candlesticks hold green taper candles. A vintage fabric screen decorates the adjacent wall.
A mantel can be a revolving spot for you to display photos, books and accessories that you own and have scattered in other rooms. Dena Stormer stacked up photos and accessories on books for her latest vintage mantel decor, and don't forget about the space underneath the mantel. You can take an existing wreath that you used during the holidays, remove any seasonal elements and weave in leaves or fake flowers.

Framed by two floral chairs, a large white mantel accessorized with a round mirror serves as a majestic focal point in this living room. Smooth gray walls and crisp white crown molding keep the room looking sharp and sophisticated while a comfortable leather sofa and colorful patterned chairs create a welcoming seating area. Yellow draperies placed just under the crown molding draw attention to the height of the room, making the space appear larger.
To get this look, look for mirrors with scrollwork or intricate details at yard sales, estate sales or antique stores, and hang it flush with the mantel. If the mirror is gold, silver, black or another color, you can paint the mirror and the mantel white, like this elegant fireplace by Atlanta-based Pop Custom Homes.
A black-framed mirror, collection of black candlesticks and turquoise books create a decorative display atop this white mantel. Black and white patterned wallpaper bring the background to life for a cohesive and stylish design.
