Minimalist Looks for Your Summer Mantel

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Minimal is master in these looks for summer. Save the over-the-top decorating for the holiday season and dress down your fireplace – you’ll likely be spending more time in your outdoor spaces, anyway.

Americana

This never has to be minimal, but on a mantel it can be key to achieving the charming look you want.
A simple print and plaque, or even just USA made rustic decor can create that traditional appeal.

Beach Vibes

For a more coastal cottage look, a cluster of shells and pretty rocks make the perfect mantel accent. Make it more personal by collecting the rocks on your next beach trip and displaying them with family photos.

Clean and Simple

Non-hanging wall art like the prints shown below add decorative appeal without going overboard. Think pictures of water, trees or even just blue and green abstract art. Lean them against the wall or
chimney for an even more relaxed feel.

Basics

If you don’t have a certain style in mind, you can never go wrong with the three classic decoratives:
candles, flowers and something on the wall (a print or mirror). Use summer flowers and a
summertime image to reflect the season.

Quick Tip: Summer Beach Cottage

For a charming beach cottage look, combine natural elements, like seashells and driftwood, with a simple color palette – two or three colors, like blue, green and white – and subtle, yet whimsical decor, like a mermaid accent pillow, seashell string lights and sea glass.

Wednesday Spotlight: At The Beach

Beach Time Coaster SetBeach Labs Pillow

Summer is going by way too fast, so to celebrate summer now and after the season is over, we are spotlighting some of our beachy décor. Nautical accents and designs are always in season, and when you can’t make it out to the lake or to the ocean, or when we transition into the colder months, you can think back on summery memories and look forward to the ones to come.

Sit Back and Relax

Heading Out Sailing Print

Whether you’re on the back porch or watching a sunset from your living room, you’re more than likely going to be enjoying a refreshing beverage, and rather than leave watermarks on your furniture you can set that glass down on cheerful beach-themed coasters. With soft colors and a calming design, these coasters will look great next to your Adirondack chair on the porch or your sofa in the living room.

For some extra comfort on your seating or as an accent piece on a hallway bench, our Beach Labs Pillow is a colorful way to show your love for the beach and admiration for your canine companions. Enjoy the view of the ocean on a sandy beach, even when you can’t actually be there.

Take a Trip

While your summer plans may include traveling, it’s always nice to have home décor that will whisk you away to another place or inspire you to go on new adventures. We love the dreamy scene in Loren Blackburn’s Heading Out Sailing print, which will add a charming and cheerful picturesque accent to any wall of your home. Imagine yourself walking across the warm white sand and float away on the sailboat no matter the weather outside your windows.

Shoreline Wreath

k Rich blues and bright whites are staple nautical colors, and designer Liora Manne’s charming Navy Compass Rug brings out the best of this design theme. Place it on the floor of your entryway or kitchen, or place it outside on a deck or porch to direct the naval look outside to the sunshine.

Admire the Shoreline

Finally, our favorite summer treasures include shells found on the beach, and one of our favorite home accents is the wreath. The green Shoreline Wreath incorporates both of these things to give you a beautiful and fun summer accent for a wall or your front door. Seashells of many variations sit among starfish and sand dollars, creating a perfect addition to your nautical décor and for showing your love of the beach.
