Summer decorating is so much fun, don’t you agree? What is there not to love about a bit of coastal and nautical fun, bringing beach decor into your home and reliving memories of glorious sunny days on the seashore or in the mountains. I love mantel decorations for summer especially. I am so sorry I don’t have a mantel anymore, but at least I can enjoy some summer mantels I did in the past and of course the summer mantel decor from blogging friends.
I am sure you will find at some wonderful inspiration here for decorating your fireplace this summer. Let’s go, shall we!
My Pallet wood summer mantel is one variation of this everyday mantel decor that can move perfectly with you through the seasons. It is one of my favorite summer decorations ever. Although I loved this mantel decor in Spring outfit as well.
Isn’t this beach inspired summer garland by Sand and Sisal wonderful? It is the star on this summer mantel beach garland. What a fun little craft project that only needs a few summer craft materials.
When you have a beautiful painting of the beach why not make it center stage in your summer mantel decor. I love this beach canvas summer mantel. The mantel itself and the painting are both lovely together. Not much else is needed to make this mantel decoration perfect for the summer season.
Summer is a time for making memories. And what better way to enjoy those memories a bit longer by displaying them on your summer mantel with photo frames. This mantel sure knows that it is silly to ask “how many photo frames can I put on my mantel?”. Just hang them, layer them and stack them until you run out of room.
My Beach Cottage Summer Mantel was a fun twist on traditional mantel styling. I loved how quirky it looked with the dangling shells and sea stars and the small jars filled with shells and (electric) candles. It sure was an original summer mantel, and I love it still.
This Summer Banner Mantel is perfect for the summer craft lovers among us. The summer bunting looks like so much fun to make. And what is there not to love about a summer mantel that features both pink peonies and blue glass. Love it!

Coastal summer mantel idea with lots of layers in soft colors. Don’t you agree this is beautiful. I quickly can count 6 different layers on this beautiful beach summer mantel decor. Although this mantel decoration is quite busy, it is the soft, muted color scheme that makes this totally work and so gorgeous.
This Summer mantel with Lemons is something totally different. This mantel is also quite busy and has a lot going on with the big picture frames, the luscious mantel swag and all the bright yellow oranges. And yet because the mantel sticks to a theme, it totally works. Not to mention how gorgeous that vintage old mantel itself is.
Sometimes simple is the best. I love this flower summer mantel idea where the basket adds texture, the peonies are bright and beautiful and the mirror adds a touch of whimsy. You see, this is how easy summer mantel decorating can be. It doesn’t always have to be complicated and stressful. Sometimes creating your perfect summer mantel just means adding your favorite flowers and a few extra touches for fun.
If you know me at all, you would have guessed I would have chosen several mantels that would be perfect in a little beach cottage. Like this coastal summer mantel. I never would have expected a deer head on my summer mantel. But when he is sporting a summer hat, he fits right in. The muted, natural colors on this mantel prevent it from becoming too busy. It is just lovely.
This cute and simple summer mantel idea uses everyday objects and is centered around a plain mirror. I can truly love the elaborate and over the top mantel decorations, but I also love summer mantels like this, where the eye can rest and each little item – as plain as a small white pitcher – can take center stage.
Talking about something taking center stage. How about that clock on this summer mantel in neutral colors. This clock sure makes a statement. This summer mantel definitely is the focal point of the room. And deservedly so, it is both elaborate and understated at the same time.
For the lovers of color I found this Colorful Nautical Mantel Decor. I am sure anyone with kids would love this mantel. The sailing boat is such a wonderful eye-catcher and the orange and blue make a beautiful color statement.
You knew I had to add at least one summer mantel in white! As a big time fan of all things white, I don’t think you can go wrong with this mantel idea. The collection of white pitchers and kitchen accessories make for the perfect farmhouse summer mantel. And yes, of course, life is better in FlipFlops!
If I had a mantel I could totally pull off this summer mantel with straw hats after all I have a little collection of straw hats myself. Alas I don’t have a mantel, but if I did I would totally decorate my mantel for summer like this. Beautiful in its simplicity and fun too.
