Stylish Fireplace Mantel Design

Try an all-white surround to make a dark marble fireplace pop.

Tommy Smythe, associate designer with Sarah Richardson Design and co-star of HGTV's Sarah's Cottage and Sarah's House, created a lovely mantel display in his living room using modern art and vintage collectibles. Crisp colours and shapes keep the look fresh.

See more of Tommy's houses, from past to present, in our photo gallery.
