Holiday Mantels That Bring The Heat On Instagram

Most of us at R29 don't have a blazing fireplace to come home to. Our tiny New York apartments just won't allow it — but that doesn't mean we can't admire, gush, and be completely envious of those who've decked out their hearths for the season.
We rounded up our 10 favorite mantelpiece "galleries" — from woodsy to minimalist to cheeky. Some of these embellishment tricks can even translate to your tabletop or doorway. Either way, the main point is: Gather 'round.
