Mantlescaping: what is it and how do you do it?

Posted by admin on November 2, 2022

You’ve heard of tablescaping, but what on earth is mantlescaping? Well, just as the former is about styling your table, the latter is giving your mantlepiece a designer makeover. It’s an easy way to update and transform the mood of your space, and one you can change again and again – by season, or simply as the mood takes you.

Here, Good Homes offers some inspired mantlescaping ideas, whether you’re into minimalist monochrome, beautiful botanicals, curating candles for a cosy feel or – something that’s set to be huge on Instagram this Christmas – festive mantelscaping!

Monochrome mantlescapes

Try out some monochromatic mantlescaping with these Chisel & Mouse architectural sculptures. These digital handmade models are handcrafted out of plaster, with the details being added in with metal etching. The collections include some of the most iconic buildings from Battersea Power Station to the Glasgow School of Art to the Pantheon. You can even choose your own bespoke project.

Floral fancies

Bring the outside in with floral mantlescaping that you can change each season with dried flowers that last longer and are more eco-friendly. A timeless ceramic jug or vase, like this white beaded jug (£34.99) from Fauxquet.

Hygge mantlescaping

As the nights draw in, making your living space as cosy as possible can ease the seasonal transition. Try a mix of statement ceramics in warm tones and contrasting shapes, tumbling foliage and some natural candlelight.

Biophilic mantlescaping

Take the biophilia trend to a new level with a full on botanical mantlescape. These beautiful, finely detailed botanical studies by Natalia Willmott (from £100) are 19th century hand coloured engravings of soft brome grass. Make them the focal point of the mantelscape and create a wild foliage scene around them.

A benefit of styling your mantlepiece is that you get to switch it up every season and can really go all out at Christmas. Rockett St George has nailed the brief with their huge selection of paper decorations, from monochrome paper fans, to star decorations to chequerboard trees. Add in a red Ho Ho Ho Christmas decorations for a bit of fun.
