Early Fall Mantel Ideas
In my part of the world, fall starts early, even when we are not ready to let go of summer. Transitional fall decor is perfect for moving our homes from summer into fall without going all out with the fall colors and decorations. Just adding some simple fall touches to our decor can make our home feel cozy and ready for the new season without rushing to let go of the old one. The next examples of transitional fall mantels are perfect inspirations for late summer and early fall.
If you are into nature and natural colors you will love this Nature Inspired Mantel. The simple branches and the pot with feathers add just the right amount of fall without making it heavy or overstated.
Sometimes what mother nature provides herself is enough to create a stunning fall mantel. Vases with Colored Leaves on the Mantel give a hint of the changing season while still fitting in with a lighter summer look. The plump candles balance this mantel out.
Fall doesn’t have to be orange and brown. Skip the traditional colors of fall and go with lighter more summery colors, add a hint of coastal decor and use some botanical flower prints for the perfect transitional mantel. The gourds and squash in soft colors match the color palette of the prints perfectly. Go see this White and Green Nautical Fall Mantel

Rustic Fall Mantel Ideas
The fall season is the time of year when nature gifts us with free decorations in abundance. Natural fall decor almost sounds like saying green grass or white snow, it is a self-evident combination. Using weathered materials gives a natural rustic look to a fall mantle. Bringing the season inside and decorating with nature’s gifts is easy in the autumn season. From wreaths made entirely from leaves, and harvest-style decorations, to scattered pinecones, acorns and colorful branches, nature is the best decorator of all.

Hoi Marianne! De foto is niet te zien. In mijn reader krijg ik de melding “not a valid template” .
Ja ik weet het, er waren wat problemen. Maar nu loopt het (bijna) zoals bedoeld. Jij zit ook al vroeg achter het beeldschermpje.
Ja, hij is nu te zien. Jij bent ook vroeg op! Mijn vriend had een vroege dienst en ik kan de slaap niet meer vatten 😉
Prettig weekend! Hopelijk wordt het weer wat beter!

I love a good mantel. I had a lovely wide one in my old house and I enjoyed changing it for the seasons.
I love mantels too. I am always so sad that I don’t really have one. So I just pretend that the shelf above the radiator is my mantel. Works too.
Maybe one day I will live in a home with a real mantel. But then I would have to move first and that is not really in the cards.
I love your blog posts, and I’m really coveting the blue shade on the wall at the top left photo in this collection. Would you be able to share the paint color with me!? 🙂
It is not my wall. Click the link at the bottom of the image and it will take you to the original post. I am sure she will be able to tell you what color that is.
