I've been on a quest for mantel ideas of late. I redid the artwork around my mantels recently and wasn't quite ready to decorate for fall in the usual way -- though I admit I change up my decorating all the time. Keeps the family guessing. I'm leaning far into the more simplistic approach, using repetition and not a lot of fluff. I can appreciate all tastes and styles, just finding myself taking the pared down route this year. I must be saving up my energy for Christmas this year :)
I pulled a selection of photos for thought and since I had them in my folder, I thought I would share them. Trying to give credit where it is due; however I KNOW I will mistake many.
Here a discontinued Pottery Barn shelf found for a steal and used to create a mantel appearance on a large wall. Seeing a lot of striking white vases this fall to add pop to the autumn color palette.

I hope you found some inspiration for you fall mantel.
