When decorating modern fireplace mantels, it is important to compliment the mantle with modern accessories rather than contrasting it with traditional themes. First, you could add contemporary statues to the mantelpiece and they are most commonly place symmetrically across the mantle. Secondly, you can add pictures of your nearest and dearest with modern frames, or bypass traditional photos for the more modern digital photo frame. Third, you can add a clock as a centerpiece that matches the décor; generally digital clocks are more modern looking than analog clocks. Finally, assuming that you keep the decorations minimal, it is suitable to hang Christmas decorations around the fireplace; for example, a single row of tinsel or a chain of bells or a strand of white Christmas lights.
