Summer and beach season are in full swing. These simple beach summer mantels capture the spirit!
A cool beach sign, bright colors, Collected Beach Treasures, themey objects, and images are the basic elements of these simple beach summer mantels. It’s doesn’t take much to create a beachy feel. Think about setting the stage with a backdrop, such as that large beach sign, draped fish net, and tall mirror. Or how about that bright yellow door! The layered photo frames are a really great idea too, a beachy casual take on the (usually well organized and thought out) Gallery Wall. Then each year you can change up a few things, and add more of your beach collections. Given, of course, that you get to spend time on the beach (beachcombing). I hope that you do! I’m currently vacationing in Palm Beach County, Florida, Flip Flopping around Delray Beach, slacking on my Beach Chair, and Walking Barefoot in the Sand. So far, I have gathered quite a few interesting shells and coral fragments.
So go ahead and click on the links below the images to view more of these beachy summer mantels and learn a little bit about the story. As they say, each summer has a story and what better place to tell that story than with a summer mantel. If you follow the links you’ll also discover that most of these mantels are actually wall shelves. You don’t need a fireplace to put together a beach summer mantel display!
