When You Don’t Have a White Mantel

We’re big fans of seasonal-inspired sets, especially in the fall. After all, who would not want to integrate the same feeling of well-being inspired by the changes of leaves and a slight shiver in the air of their interiors? If you’re looking for a simple way to bring a fall to your home, you’re in luck. We’ve put together some of our favorite modern and catchy coats design ideas. These looks are perfect for the coming season. Look at the suggestions below. With just a few items and our design tips, you’ll have all the tools you need to make your home an autumn oasis.

  • Embrace a rustic look. A wood burning fireplace is a great place to try a rustic aesthetic. Think about it: the smell of smoke and the sound of crackling logs in the flames instantly evoke memories of mountain huts and cool autumn nights. In this spirit, almost any rustic accessory is a fair game. Look for items such as wagon wheels, mason jars, and mirrors in antique frames. If possible, find accessories made from traditionally hardy materials such as iron, jute and reclaimed wood. With these coats, your best bet is to create a contrast. Organize your decorations so that they include a variety of heights and are placed in different directions. There is no hard and fast rule for finding the perfect placement. Use your intuition – your inner eye for design – to help you make the necessary adjustments until you are satisfied.
  • Rethink classic vacation items. Those of us who celebrate Halloween know that the beginning of autumn is a sign that scary nights are coming. Your holiday look does not have to be worthy of a costume party. Instead, focus on finding items that can stay in place all season long. Use this image as a guide. Rather than displaying a bold jack-o’-lantern or something similar, the pumpkins in this coat are smaller and have an impression of tenacity. White pumpkins are particularly fashionable, as are the blown glass options. Remember that by integrating smaller decor elements, it is essential to create groups. Whether you choose to focus your pattern on one side of the coat or you want to have accessories on either end, try arranging them in groups of odd numbers. These are generally considered more aesthetic than even-numbered configurations.
  • Try to incorporate nature. Although nature-inspired decor is not exactly the last idea for decorating autumn interiors, we’re not talking about the cornucopia your grandmother loved. Nowadays, when natural elements play a role in design, less is definitely more. In particular, the decorative branches – like those shown in the picture above – are incredibly popular. Think about using two or three clusters, placed in decorative vases, spread over the mantle. They can be used alone or as bookends to frame a painting. Leaf-based accessories are another seasonal standard. However, instead of braiding a large, unruly wreath at the top of the fireplace, try a more subtle touch. Wall art is a great way to do it. Remember to choose a few small pieces that you can use to create a gallery wall.
  • Consider antique finished objects. Fortunately for us, the vintage comes back in style. If you want your autumn-inspired coat to be both comforting and elegant, this is the way to go. This look is defined by pieces such as lanterns and antique photo frames. Keep in mind the best vintage items from their time of origin. Look for real antiques as much as possible. To do this, check out the savings stores and garage sales in your area. That said, if looking for historical accessories is not an option, you can always choose the path of DIY. Find items similar to those listed above and look for an online weather tutorial. With a little bit of work and the right layer of paint – maybe an off-white or a pewter gray – you should be able to easily recreate an antique look.

The best designs are those that do not stay still all year. Instead, they incorporate some small aesthetic details that change with the seasons. If you are ready to prepare your home for the fall, keep these ideas in mind. By making some changes to your chimney, you will have the opportunity to give your home an atmosphere of autumn.
