Fall Mantle Essentials

Fall Mantle Essentials for Autumn 2015

Hey Guys!
Fall collections have been rolling out and I can't help but be bothered with obsessing over what I would do if I had my own Fall Mantle going on.

It was the plan last year to get some kind of faux fireplace deal going on this year but the bathroom ended up being the project of the year. I've totally got updates coming up on that, but I had to take a second to be inspired by the beautiful things going on in the housewares sections of my favorite stores.

And maybe I'll help you put together or put the finishing touches on your Fall mantle.

Right now I'm all about the neutral backdrop with mixed metals. And shockingly I'm not all about the gold and copper, but rather copper and silver. The weather has gone cold and gloomy and I'm having fun dreaming up ways of incorporating the drab into the Fall season.

Above the fireplace I'd use this swanky Copper Wall Stag. Maybe perched in front of a big statement mirror using something like command hooks to attach it to the face of the mirror temporarily. I really like this larger stuffed plaid wall stag, too.

For big statement pieces atop the mantle I'd pair this large gold lantern I know it's gold but I'm pretending it's silver (filled with feathers a la Emily Henderson or stacked gourds because Fall) with a small village of these marble houses (both the large and medium ones) and wood houses. If I were to be adamant about the copper and silver theme, I'd go with this large copper lantern, but I actually really like the idea of pairing the large gold lantern with this smaller copper lantern.
I think the wood houses, marble houses, wooden mushrooms and filling the large lantern with a natural elements like feathers really tones down the highly metallic theme of this mantle.

I'm torn between this fabulous copper candelabra and this moody matte black one. I think either one would look good with the whole set up. I would pair the slim lines of the candelabra with this chunky copper faceted votive.
But I may just want a candelabra for the sake of having one, I could use it anywhere really.

And then for the smaller decorative pieces I really love little pops with this silver pear and copper fig. And this mercury glass votive brings back memories of Autumn years ago when mercury glass was all the rage. You think it'll be back any time soon?

Hanging across the mantle front I'd hang my own leather fringe banner and overtop it I'd hang either this acorn garland or this wood leaf garland.

And that's my dream fireplace mantle set up this year. Maybe next year I can actually put all this together ;)

If I weren't shopping for tile and towels for the bathroom remodel right now, I would be filling up my online shopping cart with these goodies (and using Ebates, of course).
