Vintage Fall Mantel Decor

by - Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Things are feeling cozy in here. I'm joining my blogger friends on the Seasonal Simplicity tour hosted by Krista at The Happy Housie and today we're sharing our fall mantels.

This season, I've used vintage fall mantel decor to create a warm and inviting look.  I really love dressing up this area of my home. The fireplace is the focal point of our living room so the decor sets the tone for the rest of the space and I want this one to say "Sit, relax, and enjoy time by the fire".

Vintage Fall Decor


Much like the season, an attractive fall mantel should have both colour and texture. Last year's traditional mantel featured old leather bound books and a DIY faux flower arrangement set in a champagne bucket. In other years I've decorated a moody and romantic mantel, rich in red tones, or a simple mantel with a wheat sheaf and mini pumpkins.

This year, I went all in for warm, orange hues and organic textures. This autumnal palette works so beautifully against the neutral clay colour of the walls (Farrow and Ball Ammonite).

This vignette is anchored by the two vintage prints. I can't resist equestrian art or ship prints. They feel timeless and classic. The details found in vintage art bring a richness and character to this display.

The warm hues in the art are echoed by the other accessories. The antique jugs, the bound books, and even the underside of the faux magnolia leaves display a moody orangey brown colour.

Have you noticed the trend of displaying large tall branches in vases? Check out @Stevecordony for inspiration. I don't have any attractive trees or bushes to scavenge from so I'll settle for this mini version using a stoneware vase from Target and faux branches from Ikea.

One other detail worth noting is the use of metals to enhance and contrast with the natural accents. The brass fireplace screen is a constant and always looks lovely against the black marble surround. I've also tucked in vintage candlestick holders, their patinaed finishes left to admire, amongst the faux magnolia leaves.

And while this is a pretty view, I think it looks just as enticing at night...

The glow of the fire and the single lit table lamp bathe this room in beautiful warmth. This is a scene that draws you into the space and invites you to linger. Can you picture the classical music playing in the background and the serenity you feel sitting here?

I hope you've enjoyed this look at my vintage fall mantel decor. I have more of my fall decor to show you in the coming days so come back for a visit!
