Christmas is just around the corner, and we're feeling inspired by all of the stylish festive displays we're seeing cropping up, giving us lots of decor ideas for the holiday season.

That's certainly true from interior designer Jeremiah Brent, who recently shared a video of his Christmas mantel decor, filled with green foliage, understated white candles, and glass decorations for a timeless and modern approach to festive decor.

'Welcoming my favorite season of the year in my favorite room of the house,' writes Jeremiah alongside the stylish video. He adds that he always looks 'to tie in personal touches to my seasonal decor,' and it's safe to say the end result is a success, giving us lots of inspiration. 

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. 

1. Garlands

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. 

2. Candles

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. 

3. Decor items

These decor items are ideal for adding some festive charm to your home this holiday season. While Jeremiah keeps his display fairly understated and opts for the glass Christmas tree decorations on his mantel, there are many options to choose from depending on your decor style. 

4. Stockings

Stockings are an essential part of the Christmas fireplace, and as shown in Jeremiah's home, look great in neutral colors for a sophisticated look. For those with children, we love the colorful options available which you can add your own personalization to to complete the look. 

It's never too early to start thinking about your holiday season decor, and we're sure Jeremiah's grown-up take on mantel styling will give you plenty of inspiration. If you're looking for some more ideas, we've explained how to style a mantelpiece to help you on your way.
