Monday Musings: The Fireplace

Good morning loves! How was your weekend? I have to tell you, I missed you like crazy. Cray-zay. I am sure the feeling is mutual. So today I am discussing our beloved fireplaces. Or mantels if you will, and I will. I honestly think people feel that mantels are one of the most difficult areas to adorn in their home and I can see why one would feel that way. It is a focal point of the space and the dimension is somewhat challenging. My best words of advice? Whatever you do, keep it unique. Vary the scale, use odd numbers and stack. There is my two cents. Take it or take it.

  4. Mantels always stump me. As you saw in Oklahoma. I definitely like to add symmetrical height to mine through tall vases on each side or plants/flowers. Good inspiration here my doll.

  8. Mantle can definitely be challenging but I think it's kind of like bookshelf styling...all about the scale and balancing things out! Loving all of your inspiration pics!

  9. I've been looking around at fireplaces in Edmonton. I'm hoping to get one for my home but we'll have to get a chimney installed first.

  10. Oooh I love the red mantel! And the chairs featured in the same living room are gorgeous. Nice picks! You're right, for some reason decorating a mantel always seems tricky.
