Mantel Mania...

>> Monday, January 11, 2010

This weekend I got around to re-doing our mantel. It was pathetic was embarassing. I felt like it was a bunch of little things cluttering up the space. But alas- an idea popped into my head and I went with it.

We have beautiful light blue walls (Pelican by Valspar) that I was using brown and whites with around the room. But it was oh so boring. We purchased a new rug with yellows, teals, reds, greens and oranges and it looks great now- it gave me the inspiration I needed for the mantel.

Simple teal vases with yellow wild flowers, silver candlesticks with white and cork pillar candles, an oval mirror and some glass vases that I plan on adding some moss to.
