So my friend recently bought a house and has some trouble decorating her mantel. How do you decorate a mantel? For me, I easily know what I like to put up, either a mirror or an artwork, but then as I researched about decorating, I stumble upon Honey and Fitz blog and her guidelines is so smart and easy. Create a visual triangle! Center a large piece of art, or mirror, and then add some decor on the mantel that makes it a visual triangle! Easy peezy!! And, as a lighting designer, it would make the mantel more unique if you add some lights. Ideally, wall sconces framing the mirror or artwork, but you can also be unique with it.
