Fall Is Here - Fall Mantle Decor

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the baking, the apple picking, the cooler weather, the leaves changing colors and Halloween. But my favorite thing about fall is decorating for it! I don't put a ton of stuff out, but I like to add a few touches around the house that look more fallish.

In honor of my favorite season, I thought I'd do a series on fall decorating in October. Today I'll be sharing some autumn inspired fireplace mantles. I know not everyone has a fireplace, but it's always nice to look at pictures of them right? Here are a few of my favorites from pinterest:

I realize that this is a piano - and a very cool, old white one at that - but this same look could be used on a fireplace mantle. I love the banners!

So spooky and old school. Love the black and white and silver!

Hit up your local thrift store or salvage yard for some cool, old shutters and you've got yourself an amazing looking Halloween mantle! I love how they hung them off balance.

Further proof that Halloween decor doesn't have to be scary!! I love this simple, black and white decor.

Really digging this perfectly balanced mantle in black.

A very fun, casual take on fall

More formal, but I love it

Who says you have to save all your bling for Christmastime?? LOVE this one!!

I hope you found some inspiration in those fun mantle photos! Here are a couple of shots of my fireplace mantle dressed up for Halloween. I will probably add a few white mini pumpkins, but for now this is what it looks like!!



Happy Fall!!! Stay tuned for some outdoor photos tomorrow!!
