Summer is not so far, so have you decided how to decorate your home to celebrate its coming? To speak about inner décor, I always start from the mantel, and if you too, here are some cool and simple ideas how to decorate it. I think, the best advice is to gather what is connected with summer for you and place it on the mantel.

Styles And Colors

The style of your mantel decor is totally up to you: contemporary, minimalist, modern, rustic, vintage or any other. As for colors, they are also totally up to you but we strongly recommend to add bright shades – yellow, green, red, pink, orange and others as it’s summer. Mix up natural and neutral shades with brights or go for only bright shades for summer. If it’s a coastal or beachy mantel, you can add turquoise, aqua, mint and any blues you like.

Decor

Your decor will depend on the style you’ve chosen: if it’s a vintage mantel, you may use vintage mirrors, artworks, shutters, doors, if it’s rustic, go for metal buckets, baskets, wooden box planters, if it’s a contemporary mantel, use everything laconic – clear vases, simple planters, single blooms here and there and much greenery. Fresh greenery and blooms and faux ones, potted succulents and other plants will be a nice fit for a summer mantel. You may also incorporate clocks, candle lanterns, candles in candle holders, lights, banners and artworks. Beachy mantels can be completed with seashells and starfish, corals, greenery, driftwood and sea glass.
