Spruce up your mantel with stylish lighting and fabulous accessories to transform it into an instant focal point. Start with an eye-catching work of art. Place in the center of the mantel. Next, add lamps or sconces to each side of the mantel to create symmetrical balance and provide a soft, candle-like glow. Choose fixtures with colorful bases for a splash of contrast. Add an additional layer of shapely appeal with a collection of small decorative items. These stunning brass urns echo the look of the lamps. Sprinkle a handful of smaller items throughout the display to create balance and harmony. Now, you have an eye-catching focal point that reflects your personal style.
