In houses that feature a fireplace, the mantelpiece is a go-to spot for winter decoration. It provides the ideal space for anything from garlands to candelabra. Also, a mantel’s eye-level height from the floor is such that the decor is almost always within your general field of view. This strategic positioning in addition to the adequate space of the mantel essentially sets the stage for eye-catching decor. Since the winter season calls for a transition of design elements, what better place to start with than your mantelpiece. With the plethora of designs that are trending this season — from timeless traditional decor to modern aesthetics — you’ll find many ways in which you can adorn your fireplace shelf.

You don’t need to go above and beyond with holiday decorations to maintain a festive aesthetic throughout the frosty season. A garland with minimal adornments can stay on the mantel all winter without being overly holiday-ish. Besides, it’s just a piece of foliage, right? A white handcrafted wreath in the shape of a heart can provide neutrality and style to the decor. You can’t go wrong with a couple of light-colored candles as well.
