14 Festive Fall Mantel Ideas We Love From HGTV Fans
What I love most about having a fireplace isn't snuggling up to a crackling yule log during the chilly winter months. In my older home, the fireplace isn't functional so I don't get to relish in the coziness that fireplaces typically bring. The fireplace for me is a spot where I can obsess over styling the mantel each season all for the sake of a good shelfie.
A mantel, or even a well-placed floating shelf if you're a renter or don't have a fireplace, gives you something to decorate over and over again without having to completely redesign an entire room. These Instagrammers know what we're talking about.
