It won’t be long before the season changes and an autumn chill will be in the air, which means it’s time to start thinking about turning your mantel into a beautiful fall-inspired focal point.
My living room is one of my favorite spots in our home. I especially love changing out the decorations for each season and holiday. And I particularly love decorating it this time of year because of all the pumpkins, colors and cozy farmhouse decor. This year I teamed up with Oriental Trading to create a colorful fall mantel with a vintage farmhouse vibe that will take me from fall to Halloween in a cinch.
If you are tired of boring orange pumpkins and fall leaves then you’ve come to the right place. I’m sharing lots of colorful fall mantel decorating ideas and inspiration that will make your mantel a focal point.
First, let’s take a sneak peek at my colorful farmhouse mantel I created with Oriental Trading. Some of my favorite elements include the handmade wood bead and pom-pom garland, the farmhouse signs and my adorable fall pom-pom hoop wreath.
Be sure to head over to Oriental Trading to check out all of the details and products used to create this fresh and colorful farmhouse fall mantel. I will also show you how you can transition this fall mantel to carry you all the way through Halloween with just a few simple changes!
Over the years I’ve learned that the key to creating a show-stopping mantel is to add lots of layers, texture, and pops of color. Even if you prefer more traditional fall colors try adding an unexpected pop of color like aqua to create visual interest.
Last year I used a more traditional neutral fall color palette, but gave it a modern look and feel with colorful aqua pumpkins. I used natural elements like pumpkins, pinecones and cotton to create this simple modern farmhouse fall mantel and love how the color made it feel fresh and fun.
Aqua and orange are actually a great color combination and make the perfect fall decorations. The rich bold colors and texture of the plaid on these painted wood pumpkins make a fun way to display your favorite fall family photos.
Whether your style is traditional, vintage, farmhouse or modern you can create a colorful fall mantel that will make your home feel warm and cozy. I can’t wait for the chilly autumn air to arrive so I can curl up on the couch with a blanket and a good book while I admire my cozy, colorful fall decor!
