We adored Caitlin Moran’s beautiful and practical backyard makeover. Now we get a peek inside her home, as she shares her Christmas decorating ideas for her fireplace mantel.
Caitlin writes about style, fashion and decor on her blog Style Within Reach. This holiday mantel is her contribution to our Holiday Style Challenge series here on The Home Depot Blog. We sent her a mystery box of Home Depot Christmas decorations to get her Christmas decorating started.
Read on to see how she styled this gorgeously luminous holiday fireplace mantel.
I get pretty into decorating for the holiday season — so much so that we don’t have space in our house to store all of my boxes of decor! While this is certainly one of my favorite times of the year to decorate, I always get stumped when it comes to the mantel. For my Home Depot Style Challenge I decided to keep things simple — by layering all different types of candles to create a glowing focal point. I gave an old chair that was previously bright green a makeover using chalk paint and I had a lot of fun creating a hanging chandelier to hover over my bar.
