Decorate My Home, Part 11: Fireplace Mantel





Sometimes it can seem overwhelming to decorate a mantel.

It’s such a big space.

However, it’s an easy thing to alter…..and why not change with seasons or moods?

So for now……

Our mantel is the home of Some new, some old, and something we found on the beach.

And for now, it works.

*Once again, a picture is coming for that little frame.

I found some really great and unique arrangements found here. (click on the arrow above the images to see more.) I really love the first fireplace with the dish on the wall….and the lemons. So fresh. And also I am lovin’ the unbalanced symmetry arrangements.

They aren’t symmetrical but there is still order to them. That’s what I was trying to accomplish with mine. I’m sure I’ll have it completely changed in another month or two.

And why not?

And if you’re looking for somewhere to start, grab something from another room that can be used as your focal point. A big mirror, a big picture, a large figure of some sort. A bowl. But the best place to start is in your garage or steal from another room. You never know what you’ll find. Haha!


But just have fun and try out a few ideas.
Nothing on that mantel is permanent.
So give it a try….
