The Trick to Creating a Memorable Mantelscape

How to style the most dependable shelfie of all.

Hands up if you’ve mastered the art of tablescaping and preened your pillowcases for a bedscape. You might have gone one step further and curated a bathscape with some toiletries artfully arranged on a rack. Now there’s another surface to ‘scape’: the mantel.

This one is hard to get wrong because, by design, fireplaces often have good bones. Whether they’re stone or tiled, painted or metal, they provide a handsome backdrop to whatever it is you’re keen to display. And that choice is where the fun starts: a little shuffle of plants, candles and art can be as impactful as moving actual furniture around in a room. We’ve rounded up some of the most artfully arranged fireplaces on the ‘gram to inspire your next mantelscape. Happy faffing.
