It feels like summer more every day. Last week, I shared our summer entry way and today I’m chatting about our neutral summer mantel with a little coastal flare. Before I dive in, if you are visiting from The Idea Room, so happy to have you over here. I just love Amy’s patriotic mantel! So perfect for the upcoming holiday.
Neutral Summer Mantel
I wanted to do something light and airy this year for summer. I didn’t really decorate last summer, so I wanted at least something up there this year! I love using greenery, it creates such a fresh feeling in the space and it’s something that’s so easy to keep up! Just grab a few clippings from outside and you are good to go :)
Summer Decor For Your Mantel
Since i’m always limited with what I can put under the TV, I just added some simple drift wood garland under it. It added a little bit of the coastal feel.
This beautiful botanical pillow from Linen and Ivory was one of my inspiration pieces when putting together the mantel. I love the neutral tones but also the sweet pops of green.

Taryn, everything is beautiful! I love the driftwood garland and the botanical pillow cover. Everything is so cute, I’m not sure what I loved best. It’s just perfect!

So pretty! Your fireplace is similar to mine and I am always looking for inspiration.

I love it! I like that your fireplace has a ledge to sit on. That is how ours was growing up :) Plus it gives you more room to decorate!
Such a beautiful mantle!
So pretty, Taryn!! I love all the fresh greenery – the pops of it against the white and neutrals is so stunning and fresh!
Amy Huntley says
I just love everything about this! And great minds think alike…I have that exact botanical pillow :)!

I was wondering if you could tell me what stone you used for your fireplace, I love it!
Hi Taryn! I came across your blog via a Pinterest photo of your fireplace. I just love the look of stone and wood. Could you tell me the dimensions of you’re hearth? IT seems higher than a standard 6-8 inches and deeper than 10 inches. I attempting to convert a blank wall into a fireplace wall to achieve my dream of having a mantel. Haha
Beautifully done! Can I ask you the depth of your mantle? How much space do you have to decorate on? Also how thick is the mantle?
