Simplifed Autumn Mantels with Coastal Flair

Fireplace mantels are like an artist's blank canvas - they are a focal point in any room that may be quickly and easily changed on a whim. We've gathered together a few of our favorite Autumn mantels; which all offer a simple style and a bit of coastal flair . . .

One Nutty Girl has been enjoying her family's newly taken photograph which hangs over the mantle and she kept her Autumn decorating simple by adding two white pumpkins, a piece of driftwood from her summer display as well as starfish to throw a little coastal theme in there too!

Going a Little Coastal kept a few of her starfish, added some berry twigs to the curly willow; swapped out the glass candle sticks for some wooden ones and also tried to keep the overall mantel very simple.

Marie's Maison created a muted and simplified decorative expression for Autumn; which we love . . .
