See my Mantel Decor Ideas including a coastal blue, sandy taupe and shell white color palette mixed with driftwood decor to reflect my love of the beach! I grew up on the sandy beaches of a northern freshwater lake and as a young girl I spent each sunny day collecting shells and driftwood, catching minnows and building huge sand castles. So when it comes to summer mantel decor I naturally gravitate to watery blues and driftwood accents to add beach-side flair.
Step 1When it comes to my mantel the star of the show is this beautiful faceted mirror that I scored at HomeSense (it's very close to the Portico Mirror at Z Gallerie!).
Step 2Adding a large cutwork basket filled with throws is a great way to add some easy storage to my living room and adds another pretty layer to my fireplace.
Step 3Candles and glass votives in watery blues add a pop of coastal color while the big driftwood spheres remind me of my love for collecting driftwood by the beach!
