To create this stylish and sophisticated mantel decor, the items used in Jeremiah's home are from the homeware brand Crate & Barrel, where the designer has rounded up all of his favorite festive mantel decor items. To help you on your way, we've rounded up our favorites from the curation, which you can shop below to create the ultimate stylish mantel display this holiday season.
Central to styling any festive mantel is a Christmas garland. These act as the base for the rest of your display and bring a feeling of nature into your Christmas living room decor. Whether you prefer the classic green color, which Jeremaihs opts for in his home, or rather a splash of bright color with the red berry garland, these options are perfect for setting the festive mood in your home.
Opt for a classic look with this pine garland. With pre-lit LED lights included, this makes your mantel styling much easier and sets a cozy feel.
For a splash of color, opt for this red berry garland for a new spin on festive garlands. This would look particularly good if your living room includes lots of neutral hues.
For a classic green garland with an added point of interest, this one includes eucalyptus for a natural, nature-inspired look.
Candles are an absolute essential to any festive decor, and including these on your mantel is guaranteed to set a cozy feel to the whole room. While Jeremiah opts for long taper candles, there are many options to choose from depending on your preferences, including Christmas tree-shaped candles for a playful look.
These classic black taper candle holders can be styled in so many ways – from the mantel to the dining table. Available in varying heights, you can create a layered look with these.

The moss green color of these taper candles is a more muted take on color for the festive period, perfect for complementing earthy and organic decor themes.
