Would you like to try a rustic decor products in your living space? This kind of interior design could be very inspired. The rustic look focuses on comfort and warmth. Rustic colors of green, red and brown are earthy, and one of the best places to create a stunning rustic display is on your mantel.
Since the idea of rustic decorating is to bring a bit of the outside indoors, it makes sense to add elements of nature to the mantel. By knowing how to decorate your mantel, you can achieve a unique, rustic display.
1. Begin with a focal point on the mantel. This can be any object, but it needs to be the largest piece of the design. A mirror trimmed with cedar or birch bark is a nice idea. Another idea that works well for a mantel is a wreath. The main idea is that it pulls all of the other pieces of the design together.
2. Stay within the color scheme of your room. Use colors that complement each other, such as creamy beiges with deep reds and greens or yellow hues with browns and blues. The mantel is an object in your room and it should look like it belongs there.
3. Select decorations from nature. One of the most charming ways to decorate a mantel is to hang a wreath just above it. Wreaths are good choices because they can be rotated out to match the changing seasons. There is no reason to be elaborate in decorating a wreath, either. A simple pine wreath centered over a mantel is a perfect focal point. Another idea is filling baskets with pinecones and acorns.
4. Choose iron candlesticks and stone vases. These pieces can sit off to one side, providing contrast and texture to your design. Use candles that pull from other colors in your room, highlighting spots of colors in pillows or draperies. Use greenery that reflects the seasons for a nice look. Take advantage of the seasons and display daffodils and sunflowers when you can.
5. Arrange framed fabrics. An easy way to bring texture to your mantel is to frame pieces of fabric. Burlap, wool, quilt pieces, samplers and linens are just a few objects you can frame and group together upon a mantel. Groups of three look nice without making the mantel look crowded.
