Creating an eye­catching display on the mantel is almost a hallmark of the holiday season. Where people usually tend to decorate horizontally, I wanted to draw attention upwards to create a sense of drama.

I also have a pretty small living room, so the mirror helps to bounce light around during the darker winter months.

I like to use what I have in my home and don’t want to totally swap out furniture and decor just for the season. Wooden lanterns which would normally grace an outdoor patio throughout the summer, look stunning for the holidays alongside stockings and garland.
