Design Inspiration for the Mantelpiece


Fall is in the air! Leaves are starting to change colors here and there and the temperatures are starting to get lower. That means it's time to take a look at your interior design for the new season! One of the most popular areas to redecorate in the fall and winter is the mantle over your fireplace. After all, the fireplace gets a lot more use in the cooler months and often becomes the centerpiece of the home for the holidays. John Elliott Interiors is the best interior designer at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have great inspiration to share today on how to design the mantle in your home. Check it out! 

Flowers & Greenery

If you prefer a more formal look than photos, then greenery and flowers could be the perfect choice. When arranged well, florals can bring up the sophistication and beauty of a space. Particularly if you choose flowers that match your overall design scheme.


The fireplace mantel is a great place to display photos of your family, adventures, and anything else meaningful to you. The fireplace mantel is usually in the center of the home, which makes it the perfect place to place something so meaningful. 


Many people choose to mount the TV above their mantel. This is a great option for the family that enjoys spending time watching movies and favorite shows together. Mounting the television on the wall is also a great option because it still leaves room on the mantel itself for personalized decorations.


Fine art is a beautiful way to decorate the space above the mantel and add extra beauty to your space. John Elliott Interiors has gorgeous pieces of art at our high-end home décor store in Lake Ozark, Missouri. We specially curate each piece in several different styles, so there is sure to be something you fall in love with! 

Change Your Point of View

If you still aren't sure how you would like to decorate your fireplace mantel, then try to think of it differently. Think of the space like a combination of a bookshelf and a coffee table. Bookshelves are often decorated with pretty items and meaningful trinkets, while coffee tables are designed to look inviting and clean for guests. Try combining these two styles when choosing pieces for your mantel.
