Autumn mantels can be decorated in so many ways and can give you a great place that will allow memories to be made. We've selected and been inspired by mantels that include decor that feels cozy and make you want to linger longer. 

Autumn mantels are a place that serves as a centerpiece in many homes.  It's a simple place to swap out decorations from season to season. We hope this post inspires you to make some hot chocolate and roast some s'mores and enjoy your loved ones!

Autumn Mantels

We can't wait for it to be cold enough outside to have a fire. We've even cranked down the air conditioning to feel cool enough inside to have one. 😉 There's something about the smell and warmth that makes you want to linger longer indoor with loved ones. So, what better place to focus your decor, than the one place you might spend a lot of time? The decorating possibilities are endless.

Autumn Mantel Jewel Tones

Amy uses beautiful jewel tones in this autumn mantle. Colors like emerald, amethyst, turquoise, and garnet are just a few that pop out. It's a lovely break from the orange and browns that we usually see in the fall.  We just adore the wood firebox cover with lavender hanging from it!

Fall Mantel Decor in Neutrals by 2 Bees in a Pod

Autumn Mantels Neutral

The cover on this fireplace takes you right outdoors. The sweet deers and the cast iron look, bring so much warmth into the home and the fire isn't even lite yet. A wagon wheel is such a cute centerpiece to this mantel. It causes the other wood items to pop! The neutral feel of this makes us want to cozy right up in front with a loved one.

The textures in this mantel decor are so welcoming. The garden feel that is captured with the faux moss and the antiqued flower pots make us want to take our shoes off and stay a while. We love the stacked chests used on the hearth, and the pillows add more comfort. This post will for sure give you inspiration for your fireplace mantel!

Autumn Mantels Books Candlesticks

Sneak over to Kellie's blog post. She changes out her mantel in several ways. It allows anyone to be able to duplicate her inspirations. The symmetry she creates with the old books is lovely!

Autumn Mantels Coastal Blues

We live by the coast, and we don't get to experience the same gorgeous fall colors that those of you that live up north do. But who needs fall leaves when you have all the glistening colors of the ocean.  Check out what Chelsea did with her mantel! It's the best of both worlds. Just imagine hearing the fireplace crackle while the waves crash in the background. Heaven on earth!

Autumn Mantel Mirror Vases

Mirrors are beautiful above a mantle and make a room look larger. The vases and bottles used on this fireplace add textures and colors. The berry vines could be used different times of the year. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter and the list could go on and on. Plates and books are used to add elevation in just the right places. A touch of wheat finishes off this fireplace beautifully.

Autumn Mantels Bookcase Mirror Wreath

Are you feeling a little sorry for yourself because you don't have a fireplace? We thought of you too! Don't you love how Megan took this bookcase and gave it a mantel feeling? We can just picture pulling up a chair next to this bookshelf and have some little ones gather around you to listen to a book. Can you see it? Think of the memories that could be made once you have a designated cuddly reading area! I see the decor on this bookcase becoming heirlooms that will bring back sweet memories for many years to come.


Are y'all ready to turn the air conditioning down and start a fire? We are! Here's to hoping this mantel decor post made you as warm inside as the fireplace will make you on the outside this autumn!

What's your favorite autumn mantle?
