My Fall Inspired Mantel

Decorate for the prettiest season of all with a fall inspired mantel! 

Ahhh, it’s fall!  There is a chill in the air, and the leaves are changing.  Love, love, love it!  So I took advantage of a cool, windy day here and made over my mantel!  It was time to take down the summery colours, and bring fall into my home!  And the best part is, most of the stuff I already had!  I only had to buy the pumpkins and squashes.  So easy, affordable, and pretty pretty pretty!

For me fall means pumpkins, squashes and earthy accents. I started with a barn inspired mirror as my back drop and got to work!

I gathered some birch wood I took from my parents place, then added some leaves I already had. Put together some mason jar tea light holders. Simple.

I love the little punches of orange, mixed in with the whites, and greens. I don’t like a lot going on all at once, so the little bits of colour make me happy.

Love.

Don’t you just love white pumpkins?  They add such a simple funky touch!

Very very simple.  Just the way I like it.

Here’s what it looks like at night with all the candles lit. Cozy!

Thanks for coming on my little tour! What are you working on? Do you decorate for fall?  What is your style?

  1. Looks fantastic! I’ve just finished repainting my mantel and can’t wait to decorate if for Fall. Thanks for the awesome inspiration. I’m with you – LOVE FALL!

  2. Fabulous! I too go for a more neutral pallete with pops of color in my everyday decor as well as for Fall. Funny that you picked up the birch branches at your parent’s place. I was planning to scoure my parent’s burn pile this weekend (before they burn!) for some branches to work with! Thank you for all of the great inspiration!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,

  3. Such a beautiful mantle! I love how you used the tree limbs. Very creative! The shot at night, I completely agree-very, very cozy!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Have a happy weekend!

  5. Wow! You have great bones to start with! That fireplace and those bookcase built-ins are to die for! I love the birch stubs. So cute! Great job!
    Stopping by from The Lettered Cottage. Happy Fall!

  6. Please share more of your mantel decorating ideas!! My mantel is almost exact to yours, and I’m always looking for decor inspiration! Great blog! Jodi

  7. This turned out absolutely gorgeous! Fall colors shop up perfectly on your fireplace mantel! I love the birch stumps! They are a wonderful feature to bring in the fall feel. And I adore the twigs with leaves, and the white pumpkins. I’ve had thing for them this year! 🙂 This looks gorgeous, and I so wish I had a spot in my home to do something like this. Thank you for sharing, will be back!

  8. I love everything in this picture! Simply perfect! Question. Is your fireplace electric? I’ve always wanted a fireplace/mantle and I think my hubby can build this for me. Maybe he can build it around an electric fireplace insert??

    1. Hi Veronica! Ours is a gas fireplace, but I’m sure you could build something similar around an electric one! And thank you too, for your lovely comment – the fireplace is one of my most favourite parts of my home!

      1. Beautiful fireplace!! It’s light and bright, but still has a wonderful earthiness to it. May I ask what stone product/color you used?

  9. I love the bottom 4 squares on the floor/ledge of your fireplace? What is it called? I’ve been looking for that exactly for my fireplace!
    Is it slate? thanks in advance!!

    1. Hi Michelle!

      Our home builder made the fireplace (we’re actually the second set of home owners so I don’t know much about it). I’m not 100% sure what the stone is, but it appears to be a man-made moulded limestone of some sort. It’s not real stone, but it sure looks like it! I’m sure if you mentioned that to a builder/fireplace expert they would know exactly what direction to point you.

      Sorry I couldn’t be much more of a help!

  11. Hi! Beautiful! We are choosing stone for our fireplace right now. Do you remember the name of the stone brand and name you used when the fireplace was built? Thanks!!

    1. Hi Molly!

      We are not the first owners of this home, so I don’t know anything about how the fireplace was made (or by whom). I’m not 100% sure what the stone is, but it appears to be a man-made moulded limestone of some sort. It’s not real stone, but it sure looks like it! I’m sure if you mentioned that to a builder/fireplace expert they would know exactly what direction to point you.
