With so many different decorating trends to choose from this fall, the one that seems to be getting designers and their clients excited is the fashionable French style. This trend is gaining popularity because it can be versatile, charming and vogue. With its timeless décor elements complimenting any room design–even contemporary and classic, it’s no wonder it is such a popular interior design style. Those that yearn for a comfortable nesting area with a cozy cottage feel will be drawn to the picturesque Country French fireplace mantel. Its South of France country mix features a touch of nature feel with  hand-carved floral accents and a leaf cartouche perfectly combined with Rustic elements and an antique finish. The interior that features this stylish piece is sure to become your favorite room to relax in.

For the cultivated person that prefers a more sophisticated elegant dwelling, add a Parisian Old World Style to your new Interior Design. The romantic Camelot Mantel or detailed Florenzia Fireplace Mantel & Surround will add a dramatic beauty and glamour to any room setting it furnishes. When either of these divine mantels are coupled with a vivid wall color or textured wall paper, it intensifies the exquisite surrounding that you will look forward to spending time in and will become a focal point to be admired when entertaining guests.

To add some additional indulgence to a French Interior Design, incorporate some French antique accent pieces. Historical 18th and 19th century accessories reflect an indignant European time period and add an enduring quality to an already aesthetically rich environment. A French Iron antique fireplace fender can be added to any French Style Fireplace. It will compliment the room style and make the Mantel centerpiece even more magnificent.

Want to Increase the Value of Your Home? Add a Fireplace Mantel

Realm of Design has always believed that a Fireplace Mantel should be the center point of a room.  And according to Remodeling Magazine, creating a striking fireplace mantel is important because it adds not only focus to a room but also adds value to your home.  Interior Designer David Kean stated “an engaging fireplace and mantel can provide grandeur for an otherwise ho-hum room or it can “take an already fabulous room over the top.”  You can be artistic and creative when designing your fireplace mantel, however it is advised to stay within the style of your architecture.

So not only does adding an exquisite fireplace mantel to a room set your house apart from the others in your neighborhood, but it is especially important if you are looking to resell your home.  Consequently, consider adding a new fireplace mantel or upgrading your old one because not only do you get a beautiful centerpiece but it can potentially make you money as well.
