Not every mantel has to match the season or holiday on the horizon. Instead, there are ways to dress this space that will last throughout the months. If you want something neutral and just as stylish, we’ve found some of the best bouts of inspiration. These 14 pieces of DIY mantel decor can be used year round.
1. Patterned Wall
Create a fun focal point beind the mantel. The decor can be as simple as the accent wall – using paint, texture, or wallpaper. Check out this beautiful scene while visiting Decorpad.
2. Gallery Wall
A gallery wall is one of the simplest ways to decorate above your mantle. Include pieces of artwork that you love and would love to look at all year long – not ones that only speak to a particular season. Just like you see here in this Brooklyn Bride setup.
3. Golden Heights
Pink Peonies has us swooning over their mantel decoration and inspired us. Play with metal neutrals – they work year round – but also play with varying height. The different scales will help with providing easy interest.
4. Classic Art
Sometimes just a piece of beautiful art will do the trick. One like you see here at HGTV works within the summer, fall, winter, and spring months without being too kitschy. It can stayed displayed throughout the holidays nicely.
