Create a relaxing and serene contrast with a deep blue-gray fireplace mantel that has a touch of green. Try Benjamin Moore's Templeton Gray for a coastal, transitional or traditional look.
Soften a crisp fireplace mantel in Benjamin Moore's Abingdon Putty. Here it gives nice added contrast to the rest of the molding in the room.
If you have a modern mantel, try a gray or taupe color like Sherwin-Williams' Truly Taupe. This will keep the mantel area light and contemporary.
Create a large focal point. If your mantel takes up floor-to-ceiling space, it will look confident and robust painted a dark espresso like Benjamin Moore's Branchport Brown.
I love this idea. Paint the mantel the same color as the wall to create a very dramatic look.
