I thought I should share my April mantel before I change it out for different look.
I stuck with a lot of the same things from the Easter mantel changing out a few and adding a few. Probably my favorite color combo ever is green and white. It just feels fresh and clean to me.
My number 1 tip on designing a mantel is layering. Even on a narrow shelf you can layer by using things such as shutters, frames, mirrors, books. My mantel is 7″ deep and yet I’m still able to fit the shutters, a couple frames, and a vase in front.
Another thing is texture. Texture makes it interesting and not flat, just like the layering.
Varying heights of items add interest too.
Another example of layering, texture, and varying height.
I’m going to be adding a little more color to the May mantel. Since I love changing my mantel so often I might change it every month this year.
Do you change your mantel often or only for the big holidays?
