It’s one of the most wonderful times of the year. From hanging lights on your house to putting up the tree and decorating your mantel, Christmas inspires a feeling of love, happiness and nostalgia. Being fireplace designers, we can’t get enough of a well-dressed mantel, that allows your decor turn your fireplace into an eye-catching focal point for the holidays. From traditional to contemporary designs, take a look at a few of our favorites.
While this technically doesn’t constitute a mantel, we love the way this minimalistic space has a classic, subtle Christmas flair. The oversized wreath, stacked logs and buffalo-check plaid turn this bright-white space into a cozy dream.

Modern farmhouse is all the craze, and this Anderson + Grant post is the definition of elegance and no exception. Using neutral shades of white and grey stockings, classic draping garland, and gold candlesticks this mantel feels welcoming at first glance.

If you’re one who prefers a classic Christmas palette of red, green, and gold – this design is for you. Originally posted on Pink Peonies, this design adds a burst of color to the white fireplace and stockings, drawing the eye into the space. What’s even better? The round gold mirror is a staple that could be used year-round while simply swapping out the mantel decor.

A contemporary design lover’s dream… the crisp, sharp lines around the fireplace, throughout the lighting elements, artwork, and candlesticks create a uniform consistent design that allows for a pop of contrast with the whimsical garland and playful stockings.

Having a full stone fireplace allows for a much different mantel design. Whether you’re looking for traditional elegance or a rustic Texas design, varying textures of all-white stockings can be the perfect contrast between the sone and the stockings. Luckily, Pottery Barn agrees and sells these beautifully curated white stockings for you to pick from.

Last, but certainly not least, we stumbled upon this beautiful design from Better Homes and Gardens and couldn’t agree more. “Nothing looks more festive than a holiday mantel decorated in crimson red and crisp white. Add in the deep green of a flocked pine wreath and garland for a traditional farmhouse-style palette. Finish the look with mini tree decorations and small white ceramic houses.” – Better Homes and Garden
Fireplaces have evolved into works of art. While still creating the perfect mood and ambiance for any occasion and any style. From the timeless elegance of our more traditional styles to the stunning simplicity of our modern and contemporary fireplaces, there’s no denying the fact that the fireplace is often the focal point of your home, and holidays.
While decorations can transform the space, often times the “bones” of the fireplace may need updating in order to achieve the design aesthetic you have in mind. Does your fireplace need a bit more love than decorations can simply do on their own? Contact our team today to talk about a fireplace remodel.
