As Christmas rounds the corner, designers and interior enthusiasts around the state are sharing their home holiday displays. From decked-out trees to garland-dressed staircases, one of our favorite spaces to embellish with Yuletide accessories is the mantel. Serving as the anchor of your home’s holiday spirit, the mantel deserves an extra dressing of Christmas magic. Here, we’ve gathered our favorite Christmas mantels from Instagram that will warm your heart, home and feed.
